Rockfax Description
The left-hand crack is short and 'ard. Maybe the same grade as Toy, but sees a lot less attention. Gaining the narrower upper section is especially difficult. If successful it is eyes right! © ROCKFAX

Tried to not use the face holds and just swim up the crack with varying degrees of unsuccessfulness. Will be back with less ethics and more experience... Probably.

oh my god
admackie - Lead dog - 04/Dec/13 with chris palmer

Great fun as the crack was sopping wet and green. The face holds help greatly. I was stupid enough to try to put a size 6 in the upper crack and got it thoroughly stuck on the lip and it made it a bugger to get over as it was right where my knee needed to be. It is a good leveller.
disturbed_one51 - Lead - 23/Nov/13 with Wee man

Hardish and wet, my thanks go to Mark for ruining the 2nd by jamming one of his cams in.
Jonathan Hall - 2nd - 23/Nov/13 with Mark Williams

3-4 falls. Failed to spot any face hold in my first go... Hard nonetheless!

Delighted to get up this. I'll give myself a proper gritstone E1 tick. Committing and scary but not massively hard I guess. At least it is over quickly.

Had to fight to get this bugger! Way harder than Elder crack and Hercules. The whole thing was rather green and dirty which added to the fun/struggle. Right eliminate next time?
