Rockfax Description
Gritstone weirdness at its best. Climb the crack in the south face to a horizontal break then squirm along this, passing the arete precariously. Stand up (hard!) and then finish easily. © Rockfax

No words can describe how weird and amazing this is other than that no amount of indoor climbing will prepare you for it!
