Rockfax Description
A fine thin crack which is one of Millstone's classic E2s with a crucial and fingery bulge near half-height. Most people start by scrambling up Scoop Crack to the mid-height ledge, though the steep and awkward lower corner crack is a good alternative and best done early in the year before the ferns take hold (5b ). © Rockfax

Bottom corner after one aborted attempt. Took a whipper after the crux at top. Hand on good hold could pull up. Lowered to ledge pulled ropes and same again, not enough steam. Went up the Vs to top out. Awesome climbing though.

Looking up at the upper crack from the ground, makes it look about E5, but when you get up there you realise that there are holds and decent gear.

Decided to capitalise on my improved mindset from the previous Thursday nights indoor fall session so kept dropping off upon reaching a new piece of gear just to get confident with weighting the rope. This definitely helped settle my nerves and I got up the route far quicker and with less pump than most other E routes I've been on (the pump might have been due to the rests)!

Placed a couple of wires on the approach to the crack proper, which meant that once I got to the crack, I was very worried about all subsequent wires in the crack unzipping (if I fell).

pure class and quite tricky at E25c: many of the moves require some thought, the gear is fiddly and not always entirely convincing. exposure and a good position on the upper wall; a worthy equal to Regent Street albeit in a different style
