30m.

Rockfax Description
The small groove in the arete to the right of Express Crack gives a varied climb with the difficulties low down. Climb up to the small overhang below the groove and make a tricky move to enter it. At the small tree above, head out right to the arete and follow this all the way to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start right of Express Crack at the lowest point of the crag. Ascend the arete / rib to a small roof protecting a V groove above. Gain the groove (crux) and follow this to a small yew tree. Ascend the easier rib above to the top of the crag.

Callum Smith 12 Jun, 2017 Lead O/S Wet in some crucial places so felt quite stiff for HVS. First gear is quite high. Abbed off using tat on the spike, might need replacing soonish? Cycling adds to the adventure and speeds things up.
