Worthwhile but graunchy- had to run it out quite significantly to avoid getting pumped and falling off.

Stayed out of the crack, mainly easy VS, but the top is def 4c.

Got my whole body about a metre in to the crack, a little tight but very easy. Great move out of the crack below the jammed block.
