Rockfax Description
A great route up the crack just left of the corner of Chreon. Start at the left-hand end of the terrace, and make a delicate and already-exposed traverse left to gain the slabbier crack. Follow this to where the crack forks. Follow the right-hand, steeper and more-defined crack through a bulge to an exciting exit. © Rockfax

Misha 8 Jul 2nd rpt Interesting that I found this to be E2 last time - seemed average E1 this time, though with fiddly gear low down. Might just be the difference between leading and seconding.

Wow hard for E1
Misha 7 Jun, 2015 Lead O/S Hard for the grade, Andy and I thought it was worth E2. Where it steepens higher up, I kept climbing thinking it was strenuous to place gear but there will be a rest soon but it just kept going so ended up running it out a fair bit until a rest just below the top. Good route. At the start I followed a traverse line fairly low down.
