2 pitches. Safe and strenuous. The obvious slanting crack is climbed by laybacking or finger jamming.
Pitch 2 is the corner crack right of the upper bay.

After a good long rest I got it 4th go, really just went for it at the top! Really hard moves, chuffed to have got it eventually! Definitely felt like tech 6a to me.
