Rockfax Description
A good route that requires large hexes or cams. Start just right of Monolith Crack.
1) 4b, 15m. Ascend the square corner to a sloping ledge. Move along this to its right-hand end and a groove with a wide crack. Without large gear a bold move is required to gain the slab above. Head up the slab to belay below twin cracks.
2) 4a, 15m. The right-hand crack provides another challenge until easier ground leads to the top. © Rockfax

Steph Sly 3 Jul AltLd dog I led pitch 2. Rested on my gear several times, whilst working out which body parts I could jam into the crack to make progress (my first experience of full leg and bicep jamming, with bruises to show for it)! Felt really tough, but was able to protect well with a big silver dragon cam. Good lead from Ant on pitch 1, again, big silver cam was needed and was only just big enough.

cocomosey 3 Jul AltLd O/S I led P1. Not sure I'd have gotten it clean if I was leading pitch 2. By 'big gear' they mean absolutely giant gear to protect both pitches. Felt sketchy without and we took two big silver Dragons. Second pitch has got to be VS at least? Who knows. Hard though.

mrphilipoldham 27 Sep, 2018 AltLd O/S Pleasant bumbling to end the day. Top pitch we did, the first crack you come to if you follow the crack in the slab, with the jutting flake was definitely more than the 4a listed here, and more than the ungraded suggested in the Ground Up guide. Probably VS 4c/5a?

roryj 20 Aug, 2018 AltLd dnf I led first pitch which went fine, Dewi led the second but couldn't figure out the move at the top of the crack. I took over, managed to get through the crux (foot jam!) but decided to bail as the rain was getting heavier and I didn't fancy sliding off the slab above the crack. Proceeded to have a massive faff getting all the gear out and managed to get a purple size 1 DMM cam stuck (brand new as well!). The escape off to the left and the following descent were somewhat terrifying in the wet... getting eaten alive by midges didn't help either. So a great climb all-around!

shed_hed 5 Jul, 2016 Solo O/S Down climbed to get back to bottom of crag. Tried to go down LH crack on P2 a few times first of all but after lowering down off the jugs at the top there is nothing but a polished slide to a large drop! Ended up getting right in the back of the LH crack and going down that. Got stuck at the bottom of that and had to climb up and down a few times before I managed to squeeze myself out (was much tighter than P3 of Monolith crack). Only saw the RH crack was hidden from the top but looked like a desperate polished layback.
