Tregagle's Crack S 4b
[The obvious crack to the left, on the right is corner and staircase., 1 kb]8m. Well-protected but tough crack-climbing. Start below the fist size crack in the buttress on the left of the face. 10m. The crack can be laced with good gear but the ascent is still a good test of jamming especially the first few metres. © ROCKFAX
An awkward entry into the crack which eases with height.
