The Big Crack*** E2 5b
[Pauline Syrett and Gordon Stainforth at the foot of The Big Crack, Froggatt, 37 years after the FFA by John Syrett, 4 kb]15m.

Rockfax Description
A compelling line with great climbing. Head steeply to a jug then pull on a couple of finger-jams gains good holds and the base of the wide upper crack. This proves to be awkward, although hidden holds out left help. Low in the grade but pretty pumpy. © ROCKFAX

scott quinn - 2nd O/S - 04/Oct/15 with Tom Priestley

Fell on a Hex due to crap sequence on the crux then came back down and did it again. Yo-Yo cuz I'm cool like that. Massive cams (bigger than camalot 3) are not necessary as there are wires in the back of the crack but take them if you've got them!

Awesome climb which combines every type of jamming technique. A nice little brawl. Fell on initial moves but clean from the ground on 2nd attempt.

I was expecting this to be worse than it was. E1, though high in the grade for the start. Probably easier than Chequer's Crack at any rate.

Good route. I seconded it with the help of a tight rope in 2009. Nice to be able to lead it cleanly. First grit E1. Perhaps now time to revisit The Grogan and Terazza Crack. Life would feel almost complete.

ian storey - Lead O/S - 03/Jul/13 with tom martin

John led competently to the crack then after a bit of squirming decided he wasn't going to get any gear and that the stuff below behind a loose block wasn't good enough to gamble on and called Robby and Herbert to through him down a top rope. I found the start pretty steep and tiring and needed a couple of rests. However I was able to get up the squeeze chimney without assistance from the rope which I was pleased with.

Think the description of 'solid for the grade' is a little out. Perhaps it used to get E1. Nice route and very safe, could prove to be a good first E2 for someone.

Aided on a nut after getting desperately pumped trying to warm my frozen hands. At least I got further than last time...
victim of mathematics - 2nd dog - 16/Oct/12 with James Oswald

This was a really cool route. The bottom has pumpy moves between good rests. The move into the big crack is hard, followed by the first move up it. Took a long while to commit to the move in the offwidth up to where the hand jams come. Ended up laybacking. Cool route.

First instalment of wide cracks campaign. Climbed with big cams which made the upper section more relaxing than usual. Despite selecting "!Clean no falls, actually fell off a greasy part of the lower crack on first go but no falls on actual ascent. The "(dogged)" option does not really describe the ascent.

Cant recall much of the first ascent. Done a number of times since.The first part is well protected but physical, the upper part a matter of confidence.The grade is spot on.The placements in the middle part are somewhat questionable as they are made in leafs/blocks which one cannot be absolutely certain about- may be o k, may not be that good? - hence the E grade - I wouldnt want to test them. Happily the climbing in this section is not too hard.
