26m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 5b. An excellent finger-jamming pitch. Passing the tat (care, it is tied through an ancient peg/blob of rust) is the trickiest bit.
2) 5b. The thin crack in the upper wall, left of the groove, has hard moves (almost 5c) low down. © Rockfax

Mine and bills final pitch of 2013. What a cracking top pitch ! Really enjoyed this despite the conditions. Had to rest for a moment to figure the crux out ! got it and it wasn't quite as hard as it looked. Will defo be back to this in 2014 to settle the score ! The only slight let down is topping out as it is as loose as it gets! But the good holds are there as with most of Millstone...

andyjirvin 03/Sep/11 2nd O/S

First ever finger crack climb - painful! But actually very enjoyable, once you start to get a feel for the move and holds... could get into more of this. Getting good foot jams and other edges where possible helps massively - it's actually slightly slabby. Struggled initially on the start moves, couldn't get my head around the jamming technique - gradually it all slotted into place and made a clean ascent in quite good style!

This turned into a real lesson on fingercracks!

Chad123 ?/Nov/06 Lead O/S

Short sharp crux section where crack turns left (above tat, not getting past it) - almost a sport climb! Bit over-rated as there are far nicer finger cracks on Regent Street for instance....

Led both pitches. Lower crack ground up, 2 years after failing and lowering off. Gets well pumpy at the (obvious when you're past it) crux, but rewards determination. Cleanly led pitch 2 onsight, which is powerful in lower/mid area and crumbly near top. Both pitches are excellent
