Rockfax Description
The superb finger- and hand-crack that splits the centre of the wall is an essential Peak tick! The knuckle-cracking start is well protected and leads to easier but excellent climbing above. © Rockfax

βeta: There is the left hand variation as well that goes at 5a as opposed to 5b. I wonder how many others like me have fluffed the original start, though "hmm - I'll just pop up the easier start..." then had the battle of their lives as they hadn't stopped to rest enough after pumping out on the 5b start! Very well protected and fantastic climbing. The top few moves are typical quarry (easy but dirty and loose) so put some good gear in as it would be easy to slip off there.

charley 20 Jun, 2015 2nd RP Nice lead by Jack! Conditions were really piss poor - really humid, midgey, the face was wet and the crack was slimy & muddy through the crux.. Didn't climb it well on my first attempt, was trying to rush it too much to miss out moves. Got to the section where the uniform sized crack is but was way to slimy to get a solid jam, don't think it helped much that there was a cam in the way. Got lowered down so Kev could have a go. Took my time on my 2nd go and climbed it properly, still felt a bit desperate getting past the really slimy section. Couldn't get a jam to stick, so ended up doing a dyno jam higher up. Worthy of it's stars though as enjoyed it even though we really shouldn't of in those conditions...

tom.ireson 10 Jan, 2009 Lead dog Slipped off the first move a couple of times then again near the top due to a foothold covered in ice. This is an absolutely brilliant climb though, very physical climbing with sustained difficulty on good jams and laybacks with good gear. Will definitely do this route again some time. Worthy of the 3 stars for sure.
