[Just a little bit of atmosphere, 3 kb]A long crack-line in a very impressive, smooth-looking wall. Start at a hanging stance at the start of the crack. There used to be a ledge at this point but it has now been reported to have fallen off. 30m. Climb the interesting crack all the way back to the top, taking care with loose ground on the finish. © ROCKFAX

Superb route. Poss the best VS I have done. Original ledge at the level of the flake has gone. Now smaller ledge 3m below the good gear in the flake crack. 5a moves up to base of the crack.

Amazing climb. If you need a definition of what a crack is, this is it. Harder than 4b in places but well protected. Be warned though, if you knock the loose stuff off at the top it drops straight onto the belayers stance at the bottom.

Brilliant. Great climbing, up a strong line in a super-atmospheric situation. Take lots of big nuts and hexes!

Really excellent route. Steep and well protected. Probably helps if you can jam a little.

A great line, pretty hard for the grade but surrounded by formidable cliffs. Take an ab rope and tie onto it at the top. Remember to bring your slab technique, this is not granite!
