Rockfax Description
The superb but tough finger-crack in the right wall of the bay. Gain the top of the pedestal awkwardly and climb the leaning crack to crucial moves into a sloping niche. Exit steeply to easy but broken ground. © ROCKFAX

Was pleased to get this clean to the half-decent rest below the crux bulge, which was a hard E2 in its own right. The blind crux featured what looked like decent holds that were tantalisingly out of reach. Took me a while to figure it out - a decisive layback was the way and turned out to be not that bad but it wasn't the crux... Hanging on a couple of fingerlocks with feet scrabbling for purchase, I quickly realised that getting onto the sloping ledge wasn't going to be easy. Managed to drop a #2 nut into the top finger crack before slumping on the gear. Ian lowered me to the resting spot and I repeated the process four or five times. Pretty much from the second go I had the sequence to the finger locks sussed but further progress seemed impossible. Got it eventually by hanging on to the top finger lock with the right hand and going for a pinch on the arete above with the left hand, then doing some sketchy feet manoeuvres to get on the sloping ledge. The successful attempt was from a rest on the rope just below the finger locks rather than from the resting ledge, which might have made that little bit of difference. This goes on the list of routes to repeat when I'm a bit better. I imagine knowing the crux sequence would make a fair bit of difference - hence wrote it up above! If this is what hard 6a is like, I've got some way to go to E5...
