The Crucifix*** HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
12m. Classy climbing up a stunning line. The crimpy wall leads to the base of the soaring crack-line, which succumbs to a forceful approach. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Ascend the centre of the obvious crucifix. A classic in need of a clean.

A Northumberland classic! Strenous but a determined approach gets you up it. Seconded it ib on 27th December a few years later with Andrew McGuire when the top section was filled with snow - first winter ascent?!
