Cascara Crack* HS 4b

Rockfax Description
The tough and dirty wide crack behind where the mighty sycamore once grew gives awkward moves to ledges. The steep shallow groove just right gives a nice finish. © ROCKFAX

This climb is in 10 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

The chimney is green, but more worryingly full of now loose chockstones. Thus no trustworthy gear and loose blocks which could hit the belayer / damage the rope. These need removing and it needs a clean. At that point the chimney will be left as quite a difficult climb. We only managed it by briefly escaping round onto the HVS 5a to the left. Above the chimney, it's ok.
