[justin on the 2nd ascent of against the grain, 2 kb]20m. Intense. Climb the easy flake and thin curving crack to where it withers then move left and climb the wall on tiny holds (each move is a touch harder then the last) to finish, grasping just a little, up the ramp of Secrets of Dance. E5 for gurus. © ROCKFAX

Incredible wall, probably the best wall on grit ;o) I reckon it could be around fb7c?

Second ascent - what a battle me and Andi had to repeat nadins 80's test pieces! Probably some of the best wall climbing at this grade on grit!
