Rockfax Description
18m. The long crack and flake in the right-hand wall of the chimney give a fine jamming and laybacking pitch. It can be gained from the left (or direct which is nearer HVS). © Rockfax

Was glad to have doubled up on blue cams but could have done with a third for the last move which I managed to get a smaller cam to take but pretty poor placement. Great climbing and like everything else we tried here, hard for the grade.
