Rockfax Description
The wide and intimidating layback crack is approached over ledges and best attacked with your bold head on, just blast up it. A couple of cam 'big guns' is a good idea, but stopping to place them can be problematic. © Rockfax

βeta: This is a more accurate grad than tthe HS given in the definitive. Quite easy but the gear is less than inspring and the rock quite crusty and dirty. Good fun, a change from your average well-climbed grit route.

Andy Waterhouse 3 Jun Lead O/S Awesome little route but over too quickly! I put a hex at the base just to do the start firstborn move as it felt a bit slippy and then one large cam which I kept pushing up as I went.

Luke90 5 Nov, 2016 Lead O/S Not as unrelenting as the guidebook description suggested. Several possible rest spots. Would need at least a Dragon 6 for the main crack but other options exist too.
