12m. The left-hand crack in the recess was well scoured by nailed boots in the past. Start awkwardly then continue by laybacking and jamming. Runners are available in the thin crack immediately to the right. © ROCKFAX

Minging, wet and so so slimy. Nearly came off on the slimed up crux with a 3 point smear saving the day! Took tension at one point and used a technical knee when my foot slid off a sloper. And you know what, Im not even embarassed!!
