Rockfax Description
The long crack in the left-hand side of the face is hard work where it splits the roof. A classic struggle, though a sneaky layback/bridging sequence can help get past the hardest section. © Rockfax

What a battle! Maybe I couldn't see the layback sequence - to me it looked about 5b, so decided to squirm up the chimney... Big mistake - I've always considered myself slight, but I had to move belay device, sling and Chalk bag to the side of my and even then it took a good 10 minutes to worn my way up, genuinely thinking the fire brigade would be needed to get me out!!

Spent a long time in the fissure summoning courage before making the moves. Felt a lot harder than 4b!

A windy and increasingly dark night - led up to the crux move but just couldn't see how to make the step out of the crackline in the dark, returned to ground and let Dom find the tiny foothold that would make the difference, continuing to second with my head torch. A great evening.

moved slightly right where crack steepens and did tricky move which felt harder than 4b
