Reached by climbing Faith (or Hope) this fine pitch gives fantastic and gripping climbing up a clean tower of perfect rock. 25m. The vague crack/seam provides pretty much the only option up the wall. Climb it until it disappears, then stop thinking and sprint for the top. © ROCKFAX

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 26/Aug/13

Had a bit of an epic on this. Either due to 3rd day on or a bit of dampness in the crack, it felt desperate! Dont forget the crucial small cams in the upper half, and alot of the wire slots have blown out. Felt way too hard for E3...
