Rockfax Description
Tackle the imposing flaky crack-system, it gives a worthwhile pitch that is intimidating but low in the grade. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The Impressive crackline gives a good pitch needing a lot of cleaning! First bolt quite high up but some nice jams above.

βeta: Belayed a mate on it the other day. As he moved off the lower rock that is questionable I huge lump of rock from the back of the crack detached that was about the size of my arm. Had to dive for cover. Be warned, it’s shit.

βeta: God that was awful. Climb up debris filled ledges to get to the main ledge above and the first (high) piece of protection. Then you're climbing up the crack system. I didn't need to jam at all, there were enough holds, either in the main crack or using the thin flake/crack to the left. A very unpleasant worry-fest, make sure your belayer is stood well to the right side as debris will be sent down. The main light coloured column feature (with a bolt/staple at the top of it) seems dodgy, if you are on it with hands and feet and you bang it with your hands, you can feel it through your feet. I so wish the protection at the top of it was a foot to the right on the solid wall, I did not want to be clipped to it if the whole column detaches itself. Yikes, even my second was nervous on a top rope.
