Rockfax Description
12m. The wide crack is awkward to start and leads to a leftwards exit over a chockstone. Trivia Question: how many other Cannonball Cracks are there in the Peak? © Rockfax

This would have been a really nice route. Looked a little green but the grip was good. However I forgot about the bit in the guidebook that said 'exit left over the chockstone' and tried to finish direct wich is much harder and resulted in pump, panic and a rest on the rope.

Really good climb. Fell the once at the start while bridging, second piece of gear ripped but fell on a good nut. Apart from that climbed it fine (from the bottom)
