Rockfax Description
Pigeon-chested types can squirm the lower crack to ledges and an easier finish. Others will need to start from the right at about the same grade and quality. A fun outing! © Rockfax

βeta: More roomy than Helfenstein's as I can't get through that but I did manage to squirm this. Agree about the great fun though.

βeta: The direct start makes Helfenstein's Struggle look roomy! 'A classic of its type', great fun.
