7m.

Rockfax Description
8m. The open groove has some nice holds and moves. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Well named - it looks like there should be a crack but there isn't! Follow the corner to three-quarter height then escape right. An alternative finish traverses all the way to the left arete and finishes up jugs (see Pseudo Crack Variation).
