Rockfax Description
The left-hand crack has a hard start using polished footholds and thin finger-jams. Although hard it takes good small wires. © Rockfax

Goey to start then easies off. Small wires a must to half hight.

griff5800 30/Nov/17 Lead O/S

Crimp fest, few finger jams, very well protected with small wires and sliders.

Couldn't get any gear in the crack, wanted a mat to move any higher

Luke90 28/Sep/17 Lead O/S

Vicious start. The early part of the crack felt pretty useless for hands and gear. Lanked it out to reach the first break. Easy after that.

Chris was looking at this from the ground, and so we played on the start a bit. Once tied in, I found I could reach a good hold at the start and make the first moves a lot easier (5b?). Both seconds made it clean without the high hold. None of us used the finger jam.

As the rain came in. Thankfully the moves ease off quickly. Multiple egyptians on the upper wall were perhaps a little supererogatory. Forced to abandon the HVS/E1 tick fest after this. Secretly I was pleased as I was knackered and fed up of the rubbish chat.
