Falling Crack** E2 5b
[Falling Crack - Mat struggling to find a way up, 2 kb]14m.

Rockfax Description
14m. Often well named! The fine fissure cleaving the centre of the face has good gear but is pumpy enough. Gaining the mid height niche is the crux but interest is 'well maintained'. © ROCKFAX

Good crack route. Not so solid jamming really, kind of wedge a bit of hand in here & there. Good footholds kept coming and I ended up fairly severely run-out near the top of the crack. Went pretty steady though.
