Rockfax Description
22m. The long steep crack gives a good pumpy pitch. The quality of the runners makes up just a little for the angle and the occasional disposable holds. Low in the grade but it keeps coming. © Rockfax

Not far off three stars for me - basically Alcove Crack but steeper (although weirdly reminiscent of The Big Crack at Froggatt), and covered in big holds and solid gear. Some sandy holds at the top, which kept things interesting, but managed to hold it together.

Hardest grade I've seconded so far, I think. Smashing route.

One rest on the rope totally pumped had a shake out then desperately pawed my way up the last few moves, a really good climb if you have the stamina

Really enjoyed this, big holds, good gear and doesn't climb much like a crack. Found the start to be the technical crux, then a massive hands off rest and then it gets steep....

Excellent!!! Much easier than it looks, I found the start few moves tricky but after that it is just steep excellent moves pulling on jugs all the way and not much harder than Alcove Crack. Very soft E2 or in reality E1?? Not really any loose rock left on the route that affects the climbing and felt closer to 3 stars :)
