Rockfax Description
16m. The long and bulging crack is gained from the left, has a whole bunch of sloping holds, and is superb. An old peg remains but it should be backed-up. © Rockfax

Start of an amazing day at the Hen. You;ve got to be quite sharp on the gear!

Amazing climbing, on a Tuesday! Stiff but expected for Hen Cloud. First time I've seen a peg on natural grit.

Peg bit old now, backed up with dubious zero.
