Rockfax Description
14m. An excellent straight jamming rack swallows all the gear you can carry. Despite the picture in the 1988 Moorland Grit guide it isn't an overhanging horror. © Rockfax

Top 50? Pretty grotty at the bottom with lots of loose holds. Top 4m is good fun, but ruined by massive ledge off to the side. Worth two stars perhaps...

A great climb, good hand jams until you reach the ledge at two thirds height.The crack then narrows so its a couple of layaway's and then jug pulling.
