Rockfax Description
Just above the pinnacle is an innocuous-looking steep crack. Reach it by following The Cracks or Lorraine. Move up into the short crack to gain the sloping ledge. The next few feet provide a brutal and energy-sapping crux to gain the ledge above. © Rockfax

A good combination of pitches: P2 has spaced but very good gear on typical Mot slab padding, P3 a more physical battle up the crack with as much gear as you could wish for!

Soft, straightforward laybacking and dishes on the right arete. Plug and play gear with ok rests. E1 5b.

Off-fingers (unless you're Ron Fawcett). Succumbs to a combination of face climbing and laybacking.

Fell off the crux. Pull hard on the top hold and its all over.

Did as an alternative last pitch on Lorraine Variation. Tough last move (but well protected) - needed a few tries!

Really cool top crack, layback/clamping the arete.

Desperate finish after a committing pull in to the crack. Did as a finish to Lorraine variation

The crack on pitch 3 is awesome, would be quite tricky if it weren't for little scoops on the arete next to it which you can use for balance. put one cam in at the start of the crack and ended up moving it up the crack with me, lol.
