27m. The irresistable crack up the left hand wall is everything it promises and worth 3 stars if perfectly dry. Climb up fairly steadily until the crack steepens, the protection becomes even better, and the holds diminish alarmingly. Crank fiercely to salvation over the lip and a steady finish up the slab.

I was glad to have some crack experience, although the tough bit is short lived. Good.

Quite Dirty. Most of the crack is steady then 3 hard fingerlock moves to the Jug.

Just needs a bit of traffic to be worth its 2 stars. The climbing is great though.
