Rockfax Description
The prominent crackline has a strenuous start with good but hard-earned gear. The crack is gained either directly or from the right. Follow it past a large open bay near the top. © Rockfax

Tough start and yes it's hard to get some gear in before you climb through the break. But it's all there. Then it's steady, thuggy, climbing with good gear. Well worth doing.

Direct start was hard and a bit scary. In situ nut helped. The rest was a romp, but harder due to my sloppy climbing.

Two lowers off the bottom bulge, dispatched once hot aches had been enjoyed.

Desperate! Has anyone, who is not a masochist, enjoyed this climb?

stiff start, i may have pulled on gear

E3 5c in the new CC guide. It'd be pretty tough at E2 5b.
