Lovely climb, last one of the day in impending darkness with left leg unable to bend! First part awesome for practising armbars and knee jams, second part a lovely hanging crack with perfect jams in it...only made difficult by the dodgy knee. Only HS I think.

Bottom crack well protected by big cams, top crack easier than it looks from below.Easy touch VS- and well worth a star.
