Rockfax Description
This fine crack was left out of the earliest guides as it was thought to be unjustifiably dangerous! Now it gives pleasant climbing to an awkward and rapid exit left. Much harder if you can't jam, but then it would be wouldn't it? © Rockfax

βeta: Bloody difficult. Without a doubt the hardest thing I've ever lead without falling off. I like jamming a lot, but the overhangingness and total lack of footholds for the leftwards traverse made the top section of the crack a horrific battle. I have no skin left.

βeta: Having seconded High Neb and lead this, I am slowly making my way through the climbs in "Hard Grit" :) One of the best HS's I've done. Was expecting it to be much harder due to the "unjustifiable" label.

βeta: Went on this as a "Severe". Would have placed it at the hardest severe I have done. Lovely first crack though, irresistable jams, but followed by a greasy lichenous squirm to finish.

βeta: This was an early lead for me based on the grade in the old BMC guide. I was too pumped to complete the final leftward exit so then had to downclimb and clean the route. Arms looked like popeye at the end. Next time I'll try it in fatter boots !

Simon Caldwell 23 Aug, 2009 Lead O/S More intimidating than difficult - once I stopped faffing and just got on with it, it went relatively smoothly (though with the odd expletive or three). Nearly finished up the arete on the right at the top of the final crack but it got a bit too bold and I backed off. It's probably about the same grade though so would make a good continuation.

climbingrev 31 May, 2004 Lead rpt Now know I can't Jam!!!! Epic struggle up this definitive crack. First ascent 1890's must have been a hero - and a rounded black rocks crack specialist! Very nearly got the flash, but pannicked just before top - really rounded - thankfully found jug (as over 6' above cam!) got #2 cam in and rested! If you ever do this again - remember jug at top of crack RHS.
