The Spy** E3 5c

Rockfax Description
A direct line that sees limited traffic, but gives continuously good climbing. Start at a ground-level zigzag crack.
1) 5b, 18m. Climb the zigzag crack, and move up onto a ledge on the right below a thin left-slanting crack. Climb the crack to a break and continue up the slim groove above to a good ledge and belays up to the right.
2) 5c, 22m. Move up left of the overhang above to a grassy ledge. Climb the corner to the right side of the block overhang above and pass it to gain a ledge above. Move up the short wall to the rightward leading break and follow this strenuously right to a good incut jug. Pull up to another good hold and less steep ground. Finish up the broken corner above. © ROCKFAX
