16m.

Rockfax Description
16m. The stunning crack is a classic product of the 70s. The crack is relentless, but the gear is good throughout, stopping to place it is the only problem. If successful, it is time to head south for a crack at London Wall, which many think is about the same. © Rockfax

Got further than last time but it spanked me once again. Will be back but must get stronger!

Very wet and green! As it was getting dark. Fell off once first time up, went to the top. Did it in a one-er with the gear in place next go.

Too keen, had the power but not the stamina. A bit early on in the season.

Fell once - the barn door opened - got straight back on and made my way shakily to the top. Slightly disappointed but gave it a good fight. My excuse is a good one... it was the wind. I was robbed.
