Rockfax Description
The wide crack splitting the roofs is a character-building struggle from start to finish. A bit of grit thuggery helps. © Rockfax

Mihkel 19 Sep, 2018 Lead dnf Jaysus. Traditionally graded.... The inital roof is a bit of a tussle but okay, but that shiny limestone offwidth above stopped me dead. Didn’t have any big cams but thought I'd give it a go anyway - much cursing and non-movement later, I gave up and traversed off into the VS. Respect to FA Dennis Gray who would’ve done this sans cams, probably when the crack was half-choked with mud, in his pumps.
