The left-hand curving cleft is awkward, especially the start. Its alternative name of Fat Man's Misery gives the clue as to why. A 'classic of its genre' and we all know what that means! © ROCKFAX

Seriously grimey. Spent a while faffing before finding that gorgeous flake in the top of the chimney. Came away with an eye full of sand for my troubles!

Hilarious! Take your hexes off the back of your harness, and don't bother with the chalk.

Awkward for me, weighing over 14st and with a 40" chest! My partner who weighs 10st built like a twig practically ran up it!

How come this is shown as Mod? It's never been that, is Diff in the guidebook, and is rather hard for the grade at that! Much nicer than the guidebook would lead you to believe.
