Rockfax Description
18m. The beckoning crack-line gives a great route; pumpy but with good gear, and well worth calling in for. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The central crack. Hardest at the start. Well protected and with good rest points to place gear.

Great route the first 5m are very greasy and pumpy but don't let this put you off there is a good rest after the first part and the second part is easy and the whole route is well protected.

Polished at the bottom. Mud on shoes doesn't help! Gear thinner than I'd expected. good large cam just over half way gave some reassurance for the run out!

Pumpy but never too hard (5b where??). And not as sustained as expected - there are definitely at least two decent rests on the route. And it swallows gear.

Well this was an interesting evening. Old jackie boy set off to beat this route he started well! HE place what he thought was a good cam placement and proceeded to have a 4m run out at which point he fell, ripping out the friend and fall 30ft into a large muddy puddle, breaking his wrist in 3 places. what a WALLY LOL
