Rockfax Description
Nice climbing up the well-bolted groove which is accessed via a tricky traverse. The top bulge can be out-flanked on the left. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Hard work - especially at the 5b+ given on the topo. Ace moves over the overhang high up. The belay lacks a chain so maybe better to lower off from the belay to the left.

Hard start (possibly 6a) but good climbing. Clips in from another party.

Aided to clip the 3rd bolt, then went back and climbed clean. Went left across the slab, looked possible to go straight up the corner to the roof which might be easier (or not). Harder than the 5b+ in the guide, but 6a is probably overdoing it, tough 5c? The rest was more straightforward, but we're used to steep Yorkshire cracks!
