Rockfax Description
14m. A superb outing up the sinuous crack, with quality finger jamming and gained from the large block in the corner. The crux occurs where the crack ends, transferring onto the final slab by a tricky mantelshelf. © ROCKFAX

Good finger locks good gear, found getting to rest position at 2 3rds height trickiest bit and almost fell off. Found top mantle ok on right, get right foot high and then you can swing your left foot over to the lower left top.

Unfortunately weighted gear after overstretching to gain the top hold.

Easier than it looks, beautiful finger locks and perfect runners. Quality route
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 09/Apr/11 with john Bramwell, Richard Williams

So frustrating, clean to the top mantel move. Tried it, climbed down to rest. Tried again then had to rest on rope. Then immediately did it! ARGH! Fantastic route!
Martin Davies - Lead dog - 04/Sep/10 with Tim Rogers

a climb you could blow the onsight easily at the top, hence blasphemy!! classic allen route, quality!
