[Crooked Mile, Lower Sharpnose, E3 5c - Rik approaching the junction with The Smile, 3 kb]30m. Another great pitch taking a direct line up the wall passing the break of The Smile. Start 4m right of the boulder at the start of Diamond Smiles. Photo on page 137. 30m. Move up the wall to a good nut-placement in a pocket at 4m and continue to the wide break of The Smile. Move left and follow a faint line of weakness rightwards up the vertical wall to another diagonal break. Move left along the break to a brown stained widening of the break and take the left leading crack above it to the top. © ROCKFAX

Slightly harder than Diamond Smile, though I think the guidebook grade of E3 5C is still fair.

Started up Diamond Smile to first break, so only E3 for me.

Bold start, then a wicked tehnical upper wall. Felt E4 compared to break on through.

With a 6 limpets on a rock in my shoe on my harness. Five minutes or so in a hot oven and their weight was well worth it for their taste.
