Rockfax Description
Worth the (considerable) effort. Struggle up the short crack on the left then the wider one in the centre of the bulges on jams. The start is a good 5c problem. © Rockfax

The overhanging crack got the better of me, just could not get a jam to stay in as I made the move up. May come back and try when its colder.

Took two goes. Thought the starting arete was a lovely problem. Top notch thuggery on the crack above.

Really hard! given the unprotected start and hard 2nd half probably both with 5c moves it probably is more like E1 5c. Good moves though, worth a star though probably not the 2 given in the Stanage guide.
