Rockfax Description
The flake crack is Western Grit's answer to Stanage's Heaven Crack, and it's a good effort. Layback to get established and then continue with pleasure. Finish up the wall behind. © Rockfax

βeta: Having climbed Heaven Crack the other day, Answer crack is definitely better IMO. More interesting and in a better position (Dovestones beats Stanage any day). Heaven Crack is a jug-fest and probably 2 grades easier.

βeta: Didn't find it that great, but I might have done it on the wrong day: it was quite green and a bit wet, which made me loose my composure for a bit. Felt hard, but probably the right grade in good conditions.

βeta: Easy once started but getting established is tough, id say it needed a tech grade of 4a at least. Nice route though HVD is probably about right overall. Great for learning to layback!

Reaver2k 9 Jun, 2007 2nd rpt Matt decided to take a shot at Answer Crack this time, he had previously seconded it with me last time we were up there and looked pretty good all the way up, totally laced it but I don't blame him I always do the same! All his protection came out easily, not sure whether to be happy or scared, think they all looked okay though! I had a chat to a nice bloke at the bottom about people sliding down the water-slide thing at the bottom and about Dovestones Quarry whilst Matt set up his belay.

Reaver2k 8 Apr, 2007 Lead O/S Great climb which lives up to its reputation. Great protection if a little tricky to place quickly. Truely is the Chew valleys answer to Heaven Crack. Quite similar, if it was warmer and a little less gritty I would probably have prefered it. My only problem was the protection at the very top of the climb, its very limited, not a too tricky top out but I was looking at a 10 ft fall onto gear meaning 20 foot in total. I moved right a bit and went up where I could see a jug and some nice hand holds. In whole would have been fantastic if my hands were a little warmer. Start is a little tricky for a HVD but if you can find your feet quickly it is fine.
