Deadbay Crack** E1 5b

Rockfax Description
The thin hand-crack, maybe with a quick layback too, gains the floral finishing groove that contains the odd loose hold. Short-lived but another pumpy number. © ROCKFAX

lower crack good honest hard work, upper groove slimy and awkward - best wait for a dry spell

Pulled off a large chunk of rock, thankfully this didn't come off for Remus. Would take care because there's a lot of rotten rock still in there.

steep but with perfect jams, not sure why I failed before last year. Classic stuff and well worth the 2 stars in the latest Rockfax & BMC guides, though this probably depends on the top part being dry which luckily it was :)
