Rockfax Description
14m. The leaning corner (as for Elegy),and the awkward wide crack above, give an unsatisfying struggle. Bridge the lower section and swim up the final bit. Very graunchy. © Rockfax

βeta: climbing out of the corner is the crux but well protected and succumbs to technique. the wide crack above is a joy but unprotected for quite some way unless you have a friend 5. much hilarity ensued when i realised i was going to have to get stuck right in, which was fine except for the realisation i was wearing a brand new down jacket, which I managed to remove while hanging out of the crack on a knee jam :o)
