Rockfax Description
12m. A nicely varied classic. Cross the slab rightwards just above the overhangs (delicate) then climb up to the fine crack which gives a fittingly fine finish. A Direct Start is possible from the grass slope below Chockstone Crack via a groove and short traverse, at HS 4b. © Rockfax
