Rockfax Description
The wall left of the crack has hard starting moves. Once the first good hold (just a 4c hop away for the tall) is reached things ease. Most of the iron finger-jugs have long gone. © Rockfax

came off a few times getting off the floor, Twisty placed gear far on the right, so had to step off route (I think) to get it out.

Side runner in rusty crack, and easy first move for a lanky tart!
