8m. A solo up the arete right of The Crank. Has not been re-led since the demise of some pebbles a few years ago, though the moves are all possible. Basically two hard moves to reach a good pocket on the left of the arete. The route is 'safe-ish' with an attentive spotting team; just ensure to aim rightwards! © ROCKFAX
