Rockfax Description
Well-protected, old-school crack-climbing that has been the scene of many a struggle over the decades. Start at the steep crack on the far right of the face.
Climb the awkward crack to its top and pull left on good holds to an easy finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The steep narrow crack just L of 'Accomplice To Murder'. Bridging and jamming required - no amount of strength training is going to help you here. VS 4c, though perhaps HS 4a for the Gramps among us.

manbat 20/Dec/17 Lead O/S

Great route. Hard relative to VS. Not hard relative to crack climbing. Crack itself was very wet, which didn't help. No need for huge gear. Standard set of cams adequately protects.

my nut protecting the crux fell out during the crux sequence, generally found it hard to place gear I would have been happy with due to the knobbly nature of the rock making everything rock around two points of contact as opposed to three, so I ended up with a lot of cams in that seemed to be best.

Stiff little climb, really happy with lead. Climbed with style and finesse of a pregnant giraffe. Got drawn into the crack, great jams the crux jam is very satisfying once complete if not a tad painful but definitely worth it. Breaking right onto face with left hand jam is a lovely move. Glad it is in the bag hopefully give hand time to recover before another visit

first time I did this I hated it, this time loved it - plus mark as a dare managed to place 19 pieces of gear on the lead aiming for 20 but a peice every 40cm a good attempt

First lead fall, foot slipped from jam and mangled my finger. Very protectable with bomber hex/cams but fairly technical crux. Massive sand bag if it is HS.
