Rockfax Description
Another fine route that tackles the high prominent crack. Start right of the crack and traverse up and left to the base of it - care needed with some hollow spikes. Make a difficult move to enter the impeccable hand-crack and fire up it to the top. © ROCKFAX

Amazing top crack, some good jamming and laybacking. Be careful of a very loose flake to the right of the top crack.
