A botanic wander, featuring lichen slime mud and obscure foliage. Occasional runners, balance slab moves at 5a and a gruesome offwidth. Take a wire brush and trowel

Plenty of good varied climbing in this long pitch. Took a direct line but didn't feel hard for the grade. Fun jamming at the top.

We had some problems matching description to route. I finished it after Lewis came back down. Crack at top easier than it looks.

Nice route, would be great if fully clean, but sections are quite grassy and muddy. Bit run-out in places and definitely full-on HVS.

Not sure about the guidebook saying it's high in the grade if you go direct, or VS if you wander about. I followed what looked the most logical line (which was pretty straight) and it was definitely not hard for HVS. A very good route indeed. The man-eating crack at the top is especially amusing!

I found that a 150' rope just wasn't long enough......

After doing the Cracks Bob Caulkwell and I walked along the bottom of the cliff until we saw the "Forked Lightning" crack. Bob worked out how to get on to the slab and I led the crack which wasnt easy as we only had a 120ft rope.
