Rockfax Description
The crack on the right is too wide for comfort although the upper section, behind the ledge, is easier. Another grovel that adds to Curbar's reputation. Huge cams lower the grip-factor considerably. © Rockfax

Cracking off-width selection. Got halfway then howling winds and rain near the top- grateful for boulder at the top used for shelter while belaying

Really quite fun. Shame about the vegetation at the top.

Had to rest on gear after struggling to place it in the offwidth section of the crack. Then backed off to the ledge and did it as a layback instead.

Easy if you know how to climb a off width, hard if you do not.

horrible thrutch through the wide crack - Big cam would have been nice. Nice and easier upper section

This was just too much thrutching for me where the crack widens. Passed the lead to Ron.

Ron lead on my gear and somehow wormed up the top part of the crack. Hard work.

This is a solid VS, a real thrutch in the lower crack.
