[Road Runner, 3 kb]The crack in the LHS of the wall. Most people abseil off from here although an E3 6b (1 p.a.) pitch does continue above. [If you plan to abb off, please take a knife to clean the old tat off. And get rid of any wires etc which are past their sell-by instead of just adding more crap - its an unsightly mess otherwise - AJM]

Finished it for Tom as he fell off. Quite easy up to there and with plenty of gear. The ab is a mess, had nothing to clean it with but this would be helpful I added a BD size 13, mallion and sling to the rusty pitons and existing wires that are there. It should all be stripped and perhaps some shiny new pitons put in..
Sam Husband - Lead O/S - 01/Aug/14 with Tom

A really excellent pitch! If there was a consistent top-out it would be worthy of 3*. Top-end VS, with a definite sting in the tail...
