The fingery grey pillar on the far left, above the steps. It eases with height but the previous grade of 5 caught a few folks out. © Rockfax

Pumpy, 6a+ !!!! don't miss the vital finger pocket as desperation sets in. great climbing up through the large crack system above the crux.

Definitely harder than a 5

Infamous as "the 5 round the corner". In 2 weeks we climbed quite a few 6a's and 6b's that were easier than 'the 5 round the corner'!

Not really a 5, more like a 6a! Sustained and fingery with delicate moves

Very hard and sustained for a 5. Suspect largish block has fallen off where you may have been able to rest.
