[Neil on Angel Fingers HVS, John Earl in background on Sandy Crack E2, 3 kb]Rumoured to be the best HVS in Northumberland, there is only one way you will find out. A hard start on the left reaches finger-locks and runners then the crack unfurls in a most appealing fashion. The final crack has tricky moves to start, laybacking from the left is one solution. © ROCKFAX
