The Magic Crack*** VII 7
[Fi on the upper tricky technical crux moves above the crack., 2 kb]100m, 4 pitches. The crack is strenuous and it is even more strenuous to place the excellent protection that it provides! Finish up the summer line adding another hard pitch of climbing. Harder than White Magic.

Surprisingly tricky top pitch! Fair for VII,7 but very thin for feet and required some excavation to find the decent hooks & torques
Neil Adams - AltLd O/S - 10/Nov/13 with Andy Inglis

Good fun route, tricky footwork.
andyinglis - AltLd O/S - 10/Nov/13 with Neil Adams

Brilliant route, super safe. I did it in two long pitches joining 1-2 and 3-4, continuing then to the top of Aladdin's buttress and down Aladdin's couloir.

Best winter day yet! Top pitch by far the hardest pitch. The crack was amazing, and easier than expected! And to add to the excitement took my first winter whipper, choking myself with my bandolier!!
