Rockfax Description
A popular training exercise. Straightforward climbing leads to half-height. Either traverse left (skinny fingers help) and climb the thin crack, or go straight up with stretchy moves past crozzles. The direct is harder but has fewer moves. Take care with the runner in the letter-box, it has been known to pull if not placed in the right spot. © Rockfax

JBO 4 Jul, 2014 Lead O/S Went up, sorted the gear out, spent ages fiddling in the perfect gear into the letter box. Reversed to the deck. Went up, scouted out the moves, fondled the holds. Reversed to deck. Went up again. Went the left way, still felt 6b to me, could just about squeeze a pad into the slot. Hardest moves I've done on gear, on my first day of the trad season, very pleased.

Alex Mason 22 Jul, 2010 Lead O/S Down climbed to the deck 4 times. The left hand method would only be 6a if your fingers were skinny enough to fit the slot imo. Made a heinous cross-through move up to right hand sidepull, then awkwardly matched with little for feet, felt 6b. Brilliant bit of trad power.
