[Darkness falls as Franco seconds the FA of 'Contraband Crack', HVS 5a** at the crags dubbed the 'Smugglers Terrace', NYMoors., 3 kb]12m. Contraband Buttress. A proud line asscending the corner crack, alternating between awkward and elegant moves; stepping left to finish. Sustained and well protected with mid to large friends.

great route, really fun and interesting. Got abit scared by something living in one of the pockets, its breathing sounded like trees being chopped down!

Very good sustained climbing. probably the best example of what an HVS 5a should entail.
Sam Marks - Lead O/S - 22/Jul/12 with Matthew Ferrier, Dave Warburton, Franco Cookson

Excellent.

Excellent climbing and sustained, though a tad chilly on the day. What a find, not a bad spot to stumble across!
