cragtyke - 2nd - 17/Feb/13 with Ross

A tough little number to get into the correct position once in the crack and the chock stone is becoming dangerously loose

Good climbing and the hard struggle it looks to be but probably 4c, no need to go left at the top, go straight through the roof on good jams and jugs.
