Boysen's Cracks* E2 5c

Rockfax Description
Another innocuous-looking crack that puts up a good fight. Start below the full-height crack-system on the narrow front face of the cliff.
Climb the sustained thin cracks to the top. Well protected. © ROCKFAX

eddy-on-the-rocks - Lead O/S - 27/Aug/15 with max

Faffed around on the bottom bit and couldn't commit. Backed off and top roped easily. Never 5c in a million years.
Tom Last - Lead - 22/Jul/15 with Billy

Another great route.

Had to hang on the rope to rescue an over-cammed cam, start was the hardest part.
Tom McCabe - 2nd dog - 20/Jun/14 with Ky Aizawa

Lobbed having failed to spot the massive flake jug, and going for tiny crimp instead... Lowered off and got it clean using said jug. Pretty much over once at that jug - the top crack has solid hand/finger jams or even better ringlocks.
