Smashing of Amps*** 7c+
[Ben on 'Smashing of Amps' F7c+, Split Rock, Milton Hill Quarry., 2 kb]26m. The stunning thin right-leaning crack is the line of the crag and a must for anybody up to the mission. Start at the base of the crack. 26m. Intense and precarious progress up the crack gains a good jug. Now devise a method of reaching a good hold and ramp on the wall above and left of the crack and finish up the still difficult wall above. © ROCKFAX
Quite the line! Start at the base of the thin L-R diagonal crack. Laybacking up the crack leads you to an obvious rest on a jug, from here a powerful sequence leftwards will allow the steely fingered to gain the hanging slab. A line of thin crimps leads the way to the top.
