Rockfax Description
The leaning crack has a reachy start from the right then gives glorious jamming to a final wide grovel. Good value at the grade. © Rockfax

jameslomax 26 Aug Lead dog Lovely. Wish I'd got the onsight but it was knackering. Fell off the start several times too. Pretty safe route with cams.

masa-alpin 28 Jul, 2012 Lead O/S A big bruise was made in the side of my left knee... The starting move was hard, particularly when the crucial hold was wet. A good traditional HVS!

Graeme Hammond 19 Mar, 2012 Lead rpt Great climbing which is much better than it looks, add this to your wish list! It has a hard start (had to avoid a wet jug) but then climbs like dream on good jams and jugs even if a few of them were a bit wet/slimy in places, and great gear too. Not as hard as I remember on 2nd a few years ago but then trying out tape gloves before probably made it harder (the only time I have). QUALITY :) some one had removed the vegetation out of the crack since I was last here too which probably improved it further as would more traffic on this jamming gem.
