Argosy Crack* VS 4b
14m.

Rockfax Description
The wide crack in the corner is good practice for dirty American off-widths and great at wrecking clothes old or new. The lower crack is too wide and the upper chimney too narrow! © ROCKFAX

good old thrutch, not much point in a rope though as it just gets in the way...bit dusty though.

Top section quite bold (a few poor micros) - you'd hit the ledge if you fluffed the crux

Just making the last move after the offwidth, and a foothold broke off, lucky I was seconding.

VS 4b - the lower crack is too wide, the upper crack is too narrow, which makes for an interesting 'squeeze' problem.
