King Bee Crack >>
30m. Starts left of King Bee Crack. Follow a short vertical crack to a left trending crack / ramp. This turns vertical forming a short flake crack, climb this and go direct to the horizontal break via some unhelpful holds. Pull over bulge / roof and onto slab. Finish up slab.

Fine. Pretty simple to the crux. Easy to place gear. Very safe crux section(crux isn't too bad).
Ewan Russell - Lead O/S - 23/Mar/14 with Henry, gwen, Anna

LRob - Lead - 04/May/13

Hidden - Lead - 23/Apr/13

Luke Brooks - Lead O/S - 16/Mar/11 with Barni

Cruxy little number, but no way 6b as in Ground Up guide. Tough E3 with a few 6a moves back to back but super well protected, great for the wimpy boulderer.
Mike Goldthorp - Lead O/S - 13/Mar/11 with Ruth

switch - Lead O/S - 13/Mar/11 with Jo Bertalot

all the holds face the wrong way, and are tricky to find when pumped. Great fun. 2 stars
david morse - Lead RP - 28/Feb/11 with andy psyche

seconded first then led after. Scarey slabby bit at the end

ian caton - Lead O/S - 30/May/10 with Abi

Rob Pitt - Lead dog - 30/May/10 with Keith Scarlett

good to do this clean and in control. definitely 'only' 6a, just slightly lacking in obvious holds once youve surmounted the crack
ksjs - 2nd rpt - 06/May/10 with owen

barni - Lead dnf - 03/May/10 with Liam fleming

Hidden - AltLd dnf - 22/Jan/10

secondary warm-up. Good pitch, innocuous to say the least. but definitive E3 6a.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 13/Dec/09 with George Ullrich

i should have had this but wasnt really comfortable on my gear (first trad in 6 months) and was expecting something hard as this was my first 6b onsight attempt. 2 rests below the crack before finally committing and the move was actually straightforward, not really sure if this is 6b? great gear throughout and some really nice moves. very worthwhile
