Rockfax Description
A stubborn start leads to the upper section of Generation Gap. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The crack and the lower part of the climb is now bolted so that those who don't want to place a nut at the start can climb it without recourse to the easier variant which swings in from the slab on the left.

6a is the direct line. Looks like a hand jam but there are holds hidden in the crack.
