Swallows gear. Great climb for those new to HS grade.

Slightly stiffer than the slab line to the left. If you ignore the corner you can make it harder still for slap enthusiasts.

last route before a lunch break at the pub for a roast and the Arsenal game. Enjoyed this even more than the slab - truly brilliant fun, seemed to flow like a dream. Getting busy with hordes of groups by the time we left - glad we started early.

Lovely climb. I probably strayed a little further out from the corner onto the face than I should have. The corner provides guaranteed protection but at the cost of rope drag!

Found plenty of gear placements on the slab but it was reassuring to know the crack would always provide if there hadn't been.
