Almost climbed by Joe Brown in 1958, but a fit of hysterical laughter brought him unstuck near the top. It takes the hilarious overhanging offwidth crack with a small overhang at the base of the offwidth section. Go on, it'll be a laugh.

This crack has an awesome presence in the Allan's crack area. Its like a noisy abyss. The first time i came to do allans crack i knew i had to come back and try this one. It whispers and demands attention. Tried os, fell after roof. TR clean to 34 way up, just after it gets wide i fell out exhausted. I felt close, but battered. I will get this.

Ding Ding, Round One! A real fight, got to the good hold on the left arete with a chicken wing inside the crack one or two moves past the crimp, couldn't gain any more height to lift myself inside the crack.
