Rockfax Description
The wide crack right of the cave entrance is entertaining. Start at the base of the crack.
The crack is steep to enter but well-protected. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the polished crack and gain a stance at the bottom of the main offwidth, jam and bridge up to half height where good pockets and gear (small wires or no4+ cams) appear, make crux moves up and out of crack to good small holds on right wall, top out with relief. Tree belay at next ledge up.

Ticklists: West Country Climbs.

Arhhh a hard climb with crack too wide for my gear - placed a cam after faffing which then popped and I took a beautiful fall onto my tiniest purple nut. Just brushing the top of Maddie's head with my shoe. On for next time but very pumpy !
