The hanging crack in the north face is gained by a hand-traverse from the deep in the gully. Care with the rope-work is needed. © Rockfax

VS Challenge route 18/36. Start time 11:44. Got round the corner OK. Spent a couple of minutes dithering about the pull into the vertical crack, but despite nearly dropping it got it done.
