Rockfax Description
The wide crack in the corner is good practice for dirty American off-widths and great at wrecking clothes old or new. The lower crack is too wide and the upper chimney too narrow! © Rockfax

Wonderful wiggling to the top. Top quite run out.

Pretty full on. Knocked the only gear out for the crux with my shoulder when offwidthing past. Reasonably dangerous unless you convince yourself you are more likely to get stuck forever in the squeeze chimney rather than fall out of it.

good old thrutch, not much point in a rope though as it just gets in the way...bit dusty though.

Top section quite bold (a few poor micros) - you'd hit the ledge if you fluffed the crux

Just making the last move after the offwidth, and a foothold broke off, lucky I was seconding.

Excellent fun!

VS 4b - the lower crack is too wide, the upper crack is too narrow, which makes for an interesting 'squeeze' problem.
