Rockfax Description
The higher of the two parallel diagonal cracks, which gets harder and harder the higher you go. Gain the crack and follow it in a sustained fashion past two pegs, to eventually make a dramatic exit into the slabby corner above. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Peg no longer there, but there is a bomber wire below.

Euan Todd 3 Sep, 2018 Lead dog Soooo close! F*cked it one move from the top, so gutted. Start is a little pokey, but steady after, maybe just didn't rest properly before the crux. Arms were absolutely melted! Would have gone for the G/U but darkness was approaching, so just topped it out (frustratingly easily) - will have to come back to get it clean.

dswansonlow 12 Apr, 2014 Lead O/S Felt tense and nervous starting this and despite the route not being particularly hard i inevitably got mind-blowingly pumped. So pumped I was unable to move up or down mid crux, stuck on a rubbish slopey pinch, and had to battle the increasingly limp hands and the lactic blinkers just to stay attached for about 10 minutes before autopilot eventually got me to the jugs 1 move away. Cool route and feel satisfied to not given up.
