Rockfax Description
A classic Yorkshire HVS on superb rock. Climb via a small right-facing corner to a ledge and move up and left onto the slab above (thread). Traverse right to a huge jug and make steeper moves up and slightly right to good holds and an easier finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Gear good on first half, but merely adequate on the traverse, which feels a bit 'out there' till you get to the 'thank god'hold.

Will Hunt 24 Jul TR O/S Top roped up the ab rope as we didn't have time for a lead. A shame not to lead it as this must be one of the very best VSs in the country!

Rog Wilko 27 Jun, 2010 2nd By Yorkshire standards this is a soft touch. The traverse is 4c and hard to protect so is HVS by normal standards. Worth noting that the guide book contains errors in relation to this route. See http://www.theleedswall.co.uk/ymc/images/Update/crummackdale.pdf
