Cordite Crack* VS 4b
18m.

Rockfax Description
The wide and intimidating layback crack is approached over ledges and best attacked with your bold head on, just blast up it. A couple of cam 'big guns' is a good idea, but stopping to place them can be problematic. © ROCKFAX

Has the potential to be good fun if it gets cleaner, but a bit too much in the way of slime and bugs at the moment.
