The Crescent* S 4b
[The Crescent - going in!, 2 kb]12m.

Rockfax Description
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

Difficult squeeze in as not many holds or protection. Wouldn't want to be a big guy fitting in here!! Gets wider at other side...difficult climb down off the top as not great retrievable abseils. But an interesting caterpillar style climb. :-)

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

Very interesting; half the climb is climbing, the other half, worming.
