Cracking Up** E2 5c/6a
[The start is hard until the crack opens up, 2 kb]20m. The striking forked lightening crack on the back wall of Gideon quarry. Starts off fingers and but quickly eases and widens to an offwidth. Take care with the top out.

Ticklists: Wide Cracks.

Super slippy handjams on the start. Reckon the crack is now twice as wide as in the slate guidebook photo. Don't bother bringing a six for the top, it's way too small!
