Pharos* HS 4b
[-7degrees = Very cold!! Too cold!!, 2 kb]A very popular, well-travelled crack-line that has good protection. Start at the base of the widest crack in the slab. 22m. Climb the crack in its entirety and then move left to a double bolt lower-off. © ROCKFAX
Nice easy introduction to the slab, far right crack, with plenty of bomber protection. Good warm up, especially for the calves!

I love this climb and I lead it every time I go to Portishead quarry. It is the best climb ever for putting runners in and there are lots of hand holds. I belay my brother William (age 9) up it now, and he really enjoyes it too.
