Slick but very good. Climb the crack to the ledge on the right at 3m. Teeter up into the base of the groove above. Climb to the prow where easier climbing accesses the finish of Barn Owl Crack. © ROCKFAX

Think we climbed in between this and Barn Owl Crack, we def didn't touch Barn Owl Crack, but we must have touched a few of the polished holds on Reek.

Lovely continuous HS climbing, well protected the whole way. polished on the crux tho slippy slippy feet.
peter.ravenscroft27 - Lead O/S - 09/Apr/14 with Dad

Originally thought to try Twang, but couldn't work out the gear on the slab so left it and moved onto this. Nice climb, with the moves up left off the ledge being the crux due to polish. Numb Fingers.

Anchor and belayer were at top. A lot of the foot holds are very polished and slippery. Great climb for a novice climber like myself.

Great route, nice combination of precise work and stronger moves. Not sure if I'm able to pull harder this summer, or have just learned not to need to! A bit unstable stepping around the nose, asked for a tight rope then realised that wasn't helpful in this case as it would just have pulled me off!
