The Rock of Crack >>
|30m. The spoil heap below the right-hand west wall is characterised by a massive boulder. To its right is a squat pillar with two cracklines.
Confessions of a Speed Freak is the wider right hand crack; about 9m, then scramble up behind the tottering pillar to the top of quarry.|

Needed a bit of a clean on the way up, but not an excuse for not doing it without falls/rests. Good hard climbing. Pretty full-on for E1.
KeithAlexander - Lead dog - 10/Apr/11 with karinh, Graeme Diack
Good arm jams on the first half, but made a mess of the layback section - fell off, needed a tight rope and generally climbed very ungracefully :-(
karinh - 2nd dog - 10/Apr/11 with Graeme, KeithAlexander
Managed to avoid the nasty jams by lay backing, required a slight twist of the toe into the last metre or so of crack as it was pretty bit grimey
