βeta: Pull straight through the overhanging crack at the crux - don't make the mistake of moving slightly left as I did, which makes it at least a grade harder. Friend 4 or bigger useful for protecting the crux, which is 4c at least.

Reaver2k 21 Oct, 2007 Lead O/S First climb of the day, after the long trek up the hill with Jill and Jilly the dog, and Mum along side, all to watch, felt like I had abit of an audience! Really enjoyed this, feels soft for VS, until the wide crack! Start off up the steepish wall but with good cracks for gear, good jams, and some lovely moves up classic moorland rock in a fine position. Then I put in plenty more gear, moved out to the wide awkward crack. Was abit stumped, tried grabbing holds on the inside at first but couldn't see the move. Eventually I moved out onto the left side of it and heaved up and over on poor slopers and poor footholds, reaching a final slap for the top onto more poor slopers. Atleast 5a if not more and was somewhat shaken up! Moved out left, put in loads more gear for the final move, only to find its a piss easy mantle on perfect holds! Ohwell! Fantastic climb even if I am abit appauled with myself!
