[Supercrack (E3 5c), 2 kb]24m.

Rockfax Description
24m. A super climb when clean and then the match of anything at Millstone. Well protected and sustained rather than overly technical. Climb the fingery lower wall to the big break then step left and power up the fine continuation crack until respite arrives on the Western Terrace. Escape off left. © ROCKFAX

Shunted. Nice. Top out is fine. Crack leads to 2-foot wide ledge, step left, easily avoiding 2ft band of shattered flakes at the back, step up and belay from new stakes. No bolts required.

Sat on the rope for the crux move :-( found it a long reach

Excellent. Good work to those that have cleaned off the dodgy blocks at the top and put in new lower-offs.

failed on this previously but in 2006 so will give myself a retro-flash. superb, technical climbing and while quite sustained youre never far from a position where you can recover or good hold. currently very dirty making some of the footholds quite interesting, especially left foot. great gear throughout and this was appreciated!
