Rockfax Description
Past a crack which hasn't got a route up it, but which has probably been climbed, is the last crack before the edge. Climb it! Continue straight up to the upper ledge and belay. Then climb the short wall at the back of the ledge, or traverse off leftwards. It is also common to saunter leftwards in The Crucifix lower down. © Rockfax

Make sure you tie in before the lead sets off, almost all 50m needed for this climb. Easy up initial slab, bulge is trickier. I moved right to move up without holding the loose block but used it for foot once above. Good climbing for second, more hairy for the lead. Enjoyed the moves :)

Hmmm. without the loose feeling block in the left hand crack at the bulge this route is VS 5a. Good route though and worth star. Led first pitch up to the final short wall and belayed from there to cut rope drag. Graham then led up and and out.

First VS by Williams, nice lead, good crux. Williams inexplicably insisted on leading the final 2m of chose.

Either my rope has shrunk in the wash, or all these routes are more than 40m.

Obvious hand hold in the crack at the overhang is loose. Otherwise nice climb.
