Blue Light's Crack** E1 5b

Rockfax Description

The wide corner is a titanic struggle for most, wedging-a-way up is the only option though those with strong arms and little imagination can layback, though hey may end up shitting blue lights as the top approaches. For those who haven't had enough Green Streak is a finish up the hanging crack in right wall reached by a gritty hand traverse © ROCKFAX

Sustained laybacking, made harder by the lichen still being a little damp. Could do with a good scrub down.
