Rockfax Description
From the cave, battle into the evil narrowing crack and heave on the creaky flake to reach easier ground. An exhausting and torrid thrash for most. © Rockfax

Though could not make it, this was hugely enjoyable climb! I will definitely come back and climb!

Alex@home ??/2010 2nd O/S

date is a guess. i remember climbing up and down a few times and thinking it seemed impossible until i took out the cam that was blocking the place my fist needed to be. after that it was still quite tough but eminently possible
