Knucklecracker HS 4a
KNUCKLECRACKER 120' HARD SEVERE 4A (1964)
Hard to locate. Very mossy.
Round the corner, from the start of Climbers’ Club, and up the wooded slope, is
an overgrown buttress. Start below the mossy groove.
1) 4a. Tricky and bold. Climb the groove, and the slab above, to a tree belay.
2) 4a. Walk down left to the belay of Route B, and a crack. Climb this crack and move left onto a slab. Follow the slab to the top.
To the right again, a 25-foot crack gives Nuts, Difficult.

Was going to do route B but spotted this line and went for it. Nice large crack with small overhang at the mid point. My daughter Daisy (11) joined us on the route and loved it.
