Rockfax Description
A good but awkward climb that does remain wet for a while after rain. Start below the wide, right-slanting crack.
Move up cracks to below the corner proper. Climb the wide crack to an awkward exit onto a sloping ledge and continue up the still-tricky continuation crack above to the top. © Rockfax
