Rockfax Description
A very popular, well-travelled crack-line that has good protection. Start at the base of the widest crack in the slab.
Climb the crack in its entirety and then move left to a double bolt lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Nice easy introduction to the slab, far right crack, with plenty of bomber protection.
Good warm up, especially for the calves!

Ticklists: West Country Climbs.
