[jake in the top crackj, 2 kb]60m. An aquatic trip across the ledges. Okay in the dry but way too exciting after rain. Start on the right and climb up the groove or the ledges to its left. Then follow the ramps up and left, past the main flow to a choice of finishing grooves, or if well-soaked, exit easily rightwards. © ROCKFAX

Josh-is-ace - Solo O/S - 14/Aug/12

Ideal conditions for it: wet enough to be exciting but not too difficult (wouldn't have wanted to solo it, though...). Got thoroughly soaked: one of the most enjoyable (and unique) climbs I've done. Joe led the first pitch and provided me with good protection (and found a lovely spot to belay from). I led to the top.
