Scarlett's Crack* VS 5a

Rockfax Description
Start up the tricky green groove then follow the thin crack throughout. Well worth calling in for if you are over this way. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
The prominent groove and crack gives a fine pitch with a tricky start and tricky exit. Well protected throughout. The old grade of S 4a was a joke!

Dry. Needed to do this before inclusion in the new Rockfax guide makes it mainstream. Attempted once before when wet but never left the ground so calling it O/S. The start is hard for 5a but the route is only about severe after that.

A quick couple of moves gains easier ground. Was a bit dirty but well worth finding.
