Rockfax Description
An excellent pitch of its type. The wide crack/chimney is sustained and protectable with slings and wires. Finish up the pinnacle on the right. © Rockfax

Another awkward climb on good holds up obvious crack in middle of Inelegence area. Would like to lead it, but need to get good footing to place gear.

An excellent example of that rarest of beasts - a solid, safe, low-grade limestone route. Udging not required but fun to do anyway!
