Rockfax Description
14m. The bottle-shaped crack needs some bottle (and knees) to start, then eases to give good jamming above. © Rockfax

Strenuous start with a hand jam. Good climbing after that, take lots of friends

Typical Northumberland start, first 2m boulder problem, and interesting move around bulge on the left.

Desperate start and no picnic higher up. Top end MVS 5a is fair enough. Thanks to Hayley for steering me away from the lead!

Getting into the groove is Bastard hard with a capital B. I think the climbing above that was nice, but my arms were too busy not working to tell...

Found the move onto the arete tricky. But once I had that it was pretty much OK.
