Rockfax Description
12m. The crack line up the right-hand side of the tallest face in this part of the quarry is the best VS hereabouts. Nice climbing and good protection ensure its continued popularity. Thrasshing should not be necessary. © Rockfax

Sudden hailstorm for last quarter made this a bit harder! Nice climb. Quite awkward but not technical.

Partner backed off, so lead with some of their gear in. Asked for advice from another party. Found it quite awkward.
