Rockfax Description
A superb crack in the wall right of Crithmum which is better now that Crithmum is further away! Climb Crithmum to the base of its upper corner then step up right into the crack. This gives sustained and interesting climbing with one tricky section. A gem! © Rockfax

Happily climbing this thinking it's VS (my guide is from 1985) until it got rather tougher near the top......glad it's not VS!

Tony: "I'm fairly battered, fancy this VS to finish the day on?" And so we found out the hard way that things have changed a bit since the 1985 guidebook! Good route with a fairly tough crux saved for the top.

Lovely route, sustained climbing up to an interesting crux which felt top end 5b/bottom end 5c. Overall felt soft for E2.

Don't understand how this gets E2 unless a 5c move at the crux? It's not that pumpy.

lovely hand jamming in lower half with jugs for brief rests, and sudden stopper sequence at top that almost spat me off. felt more like 5c to me.
