Rockfax Description
The right-hand crack leads to a ledge. From here a short layback flake on the right gives the protectable crux. Nice. © Rockfax

The start is really hard - not 5a!

Stage two of 'backing off things and blaming the heat'. Awful starting crack, more of a did not start - had a couple of goes then down-climbed.

Seemed a lot harder than 36 years ago - I wonder why. Lead with a struggle up to final layback - very green at the moment - but backed off.

the start seems to be some sort of unholy mix of balance and thrutching, on slopey holds in 25 degree weather...
