Baker's Groove** E1 5b

Rockfax Description
The central crack is a fine butch pitch, though the upper part is often a bit dirty. The initial wall and roof are powerful, a start on the right is easiest. Once established a good rest is available before a tough move to access the final easy slab. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
The crack splitting the buttress is a good climb when in condition. Usually gained from the right, it leads to a fingery pull onto the top slab.

Hard, almost E1 i reckon, had to dig outa wire placement at the top. All the routes here have a kind of 'adventurous'feel about them.
