A Farewell to Arms** E1 5b

Rockfax Description
The fine crack right of the corner gives a great pitch which can be reasonably well protected with tiny wires. Trend right to finish. A direct finish is a grade harder - E2 5c. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Small wires protect the groove just right of Plumbers Corner. Trend right to finish.
