Longships Wall*** E3 6a

Rockfax Description
A great single-pitch that follows an intermittent crack-line up the centre of the wall. Start at a thin crack on the right side of the square-cut overhangs as for Antenna.
The crack is very hard work to start. © ROCKFAX

Blew the onsight, narrowly. The start is nails, and the cruxes half way up are pretty tough. Incredible route in a stunning setting, definitely 3*.
