Rockfax Description
The central crack gives a fine little route, steep, sustained and often a bit of a struggle. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The right hand of the 2 central cracks gives a fine route. Climb the short and grassy lower wall to the start of the crack proper. Quite sustained for the grade.

Yes it's only 4b, but every single move is 4b. Thank god for the good bridging rests and solid jams.

Like many people I was mislead by the Rockfax guide and thought this was the Severe 4a! I was taking Ste out for his first rock climbing experience and promised to find something dead easy and enjoyable. I don't think it ticked either box for him! I enjoyed it though, although VS 4b is definitely more like it than S 4a!

Clean on-sight, but only just. Quite a struggle at the grade with little good gear near the top. 4c gets my vote. No polish though, which was nice.

Very polished. Climbed it about 15 years ago and rememember it being pretty stiff for VS then.

Lead after the two girls tried and stopped at the crux, they thought it was the severe, as did I. Thought it seemed a bit tough at severe!

This took us much longer than it should have done, but otherwise a very enjoyable, challenging and energy sapping climb.

Climbed under the impression that it was Morning Crack (the topo is wrong). No wonder it felt hard and bold for Severe!
