Rockfax Description
Another innocuous-looking crack that puts up a good fight. Start below the full-height crack-system on the narrow front face of the cliff.
Climb the sustained thin cracks to the top. Well protected. © Rockfax

Not so much dogged as winched and aided, poor effort from me, impressive climbing from Seb in moist and dull conditions.

Yay - my first E2 lead! I expected to dog/aid my way up it, but I got it. Wasn't flawless as I managed to shower half my small wires everywhere (luckily you don't need them for this route). I also got pretty pumped at a couple of points and thought I was going to lose it, but I managed to keep on trucking. Some great jams where you need them on genuine shark's tooth, skin-ripping Cornish granite.

Had to hang on the rope to rescue an over-cammed cam, start was the hardest part.

Lobbed having failed to spot the massive flake jug, and going for tiny crimp instead... Lowered off and got it clean using said jug. Pretty much over once at that jug - the top crack has solid hand/finger jams or even better ringlocks.
