GBH* E2 5c

Rockfax Description
Just above the pinnacle is an innocuous-looking steep crack. Reach it by following The Cracks or Lorraine. Move up into the short crack to gain the sloping ledge. The next few feet provide a brutal and energy-sapping crux to gain the ledge above. © ROCKFAX

Off-fingers (unless you're Ron Fawcett). Succumbs to a combination of face climbing and laybacking.

Did as an alternative last pitch on Lorraine Variation. Tough last move (but well protected) - needed a few tries!

The crack on pitch 3 is awesome, would be quite tricky if it weren't for little scoops on the arete next to it which you can use for balance. put one cam in at the start of the crack and ended up moving it up the crack with me, lol.
