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

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.

Pumpy crack quite a way up. Just make sure you have the right sized cam ready to throw in if you don't fancy risking the whole lot unprotected.

It's easier than it looks and nicer. Needs more attention. Worth doing if you have done all the other VS's

Has the potential to be good fun if it gets cleaner, but a bit too much in the way of slime and bugs at the moment.
