Rockfax Description
20m. A mega-classic, and pumpier than life itself, though at least this one has plenty of runners once you reach the start of the crack proper. Climb to the thin crack using pockets and follow it with great difficulty to the pigeon poo and collection of tat under the roof. All that remains between you and glory is the E5 roof-crack. Mega. © Rockfax

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 8 Jul, 2017 Lead β Before getting on I wasn't convinced I was going to get up it in a session, the flash was unthinkable; however, with some beta from Tony + Fatboy on the lower third I managed to fumble my way through to the half height 'rest'. I should have fallen off countless times above that, and had a complete meltdown where it got particularly wide/green, but hung on. Could be one of the best leads of my life.
