8m. The thin twisting cracks in the wall to the right are pleasant and well-protected. There is a choice of finishes. © Rockfax

Vicky asked me to do this after she backed off. The start is hard and awkward (reach dependant?) too hard for vdiff...felt harder than damascus crack but I'm sure it can't be, can it??

SPA Assessment TR setup... Thought maybe a S than HVD. Very awkward start onto the wall. Tricky diagonal crack and then a weird flake-ish half lay back... Meh?
