Rockfax Description
The compelling wide crack has useful holds on the face. Large gear is needed to protect it well. The finish is awkward. © Rockfax

Large gear? Lots of slings is all you need for the many chock-stones. A little akward but about 2/3 the way up.

Managed to drop the rope behind the chockstone after we'd finished. Ben dutifully retrieved it, then I belayed him back up.
