Rockfax Description
14m. The thin leaning crack is an uphill struggle on thin-hand jams and fat finger-locks though protection is superb. The old wooden wedges manage to get in the way and the crux is where you don't want it, just below the top! © Rockfax

Slept in the quarry and after a few beers; thought it would be interesting to climb this on aid. We finished it in the morning.
