12m. Climb the prominent 8m crack (takes large cams) just left of the vegetated area. Progress is made by thuggish jamming or delicate balancing on blocks of the arete. Finish up arete as for Sabre Crack

Very nice and clean. Not sure why it's described as "thuggish jamming" - the jamming is as delicate and un-thuggish as it comes!

Good jamming. Used 3 big hexes and one large cam. Felt harder than Sabre Crack, though they are the same grade.

dmacmorris 16/Apr/12 Lead O/S

Bold route followed by huge gear, also very strenuous on the arms and the crack is an awkwardly sized for comfortable jams.

More difficult when its pouring with rain....

tricky start , quite easy for tall people. crack got harder nearing the top for jamming nice big cam or hex placement. not that good at top out for setting up tree is to far if you dont have a 50 or 60 ropes .

Not as much jamming as I thought. Ledges & crimps along the way.

Great little topo, hard and thuggy. Very protected for the lead, the escape to the top easy with protecting in the form of trees and roots if needs be.
