[The Crescent - going in!, 2 kb]12m. Start up the crack to the first ledge then move right and hand traverse the edge of the crack until access to the wider curving continuation crack is possible. Pull into this and wriggle though the cliff to reach Layback on the opposite face and finish up this - bizarre. © ROCKFAX

A versatile grading should be put on this one to allow for the thickness of ones belly! Lucky I'm skinny : )
