Green Crack VS 4b
10m. The square-cut corner is fine when dry though the final narrow chimney is always an awkward grovel. © ROCKFAX

Lead in rain. Lower half was dry, good offwidth start and nice jamming as it tapered. Upper half of the climb was sopping and very overgrown. All in all, a bit of a battle. Loved it.

cwildblood - TR O/S - 24/Nov/13 with joe mortimer

Good positions and moves, bridging and jamming the crack. Only downside - eyes full of whatever plant matter that was blowing out of the greenery.

a hard move gets you established, but much better climbing than it looks providing its not too green follows, which is well worth a star. You can't train for this sort of thing down the climbing wall.
