Rockfax Description
12m. Climb the good crack then mantelshelf rightwards (hard but safe) or layback (easier but bolder) then follow the cracks only. Following the left-hand crack is harder. © Rockfax

Really nice HS and I felt quite soft. First few moves are half tricky, but when you get your hands on the giant ledge I didn't find the mantleshelf hard at all really! Went up left crack because I fancied a challenge, not too bad, plenty of jugs/handles to hold whilst you walk up. Belay was a nice suprise! Dad followed with relative ease, abit of a struggle up to the mantleshelf move.
