Rockfax Description
12m. The roof-crack above the final traverse of Crack and Wall is hard to enter. The name refers to the hip joint, a clue as how to approach the moves. © Rockfax

Awful. Proper gritty pulling through.

Bit of a one move wonder but still a good route. Good gear just where you need it.

Almost made it ground up but didn't commit to the reach from the lay away so slumped to an inglorious failure. Oh well, there's always next time!

Misread the crux moves and as a consequence found it quite tough.

Greta led Crack and Wall, followed a little more direct... harder to get out of than into the crack!

Erm... Contorted, twisted, slopey, messy and thankfully I suppose, short lived. Even gave the 70 odd year old super hex a run out! :0

1 fall from the crux. Lowered to a rest before completing it. Very strenuous but plenty of protection. Will have to stop trying strenuous E1s as warm ups.
