Notice Board Crack** VS 4b
9m. The kinked crack is an ancient and awkward classic. Traditionally graded VS, it's nearer HS with a suitably large cam. © ROCKFAX
Possibly Brimham's oldest VS and an often green one at that. The north facing crack that doglegs right at two thirds height. If you take a BIG cam, probably only hard severe.
