Sunset Crack* VS 5a
[Top pitch of Sunset Crack, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
Good climbing up the prominent crack in a corner on the left-hand side of the wall.
1) 4b, 42m. Scramble up to a grassy ledge below the crack. Move up into the crack from the left (possible belay below a manky thread as for Lithrig) and then swarm up it to a belay on the left below a steep section.
2) 5a, 20m. Make a hard move to gain the chimney on the lip of the overhang. Some traditional thrutching up this leads to easier climbing above. Belay on the Green Gallery and escape right. © ROCKFAX
