7m. Well named - it looks like there should be a crack but there isn't! Follow the corner to three-quarter height then escape right. An alternative finish traverses all the way to the left arete and finishes up jugs.

Really enjoyed this one. Climbed it totally differently from last time as water was flowing down it and most the good holds were wet and slimy so avoided them all. Made the climbing much more interesting.

Brilliant route but made about a million times better by following the traverse out left, good holds along a rail, solid gear then just power up the huge jugs on the arete

Very good. Finished right - the alternative traverse to the arete suggested in the guide didn't seem to have any handholds!
