A long, thin crack up the left-hand edge of the slab, gives a pleasant pitch. Small wires are needed for protection. © Rockfax

Quite thin and balancy on the crack. Excellent gear.

Was fine until the particularly small ledges/ lack of obvious anything until the next large ledge towards the top. Did that sequence of moves on a very tight rope!

fun climbing slightly harder when done true to the full line (direct from top of crack) wish I had led

SuperLee1985 03/May/14 Lead O/S

My first VS 5A. Nice climbing, well protected (lots of small gear) and some interesting delicate moves near the top. Beware of the very loose jug on the lower section.

The enticing crack proofed to come with a loose block low down and very slimy rock. Made it quite interesting, the description "well protected" is borderline criminal unless you got small gear on you (brass).

Two interesting moves (5b). Partly because I am short, I think. Nevertheless even a friend of mine, John, who is much taller than the average and lead it after me, said it would be 5a.
