Solomon's Crack Variation S 4a

Rockfax Description
A direct start and finish are a grade harder and a lot less pleasant than the original. The wide rift right of the final corner is also a grovelly option. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
The wide awkward crack on the left of the final easy groove.

Despite Lorna's bomb-proof gear placement, a nice straight forward climb with a challenging finish. A bit breezy at the top!
