Rockfax Description
The wide overhanging crack succumbs to jamming and determination. Large cam useful. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The obvious left-slanting crack that maintains interest.

An irresistible line up the overhanging wide crack - the classic of the crag and a good first E2 for the indoor wall climber. Headjam out of the niche with gusto and continue up the crack. Stepping right onto the pillar near the top extends the fun.

K. Wilkinson and P.Hirst May/1989

Michael Bortoluzzi 7 May, 2018 Lead G/U Took a bit of fighting! Felt like all the difficulties were in the overhang at the start, things got a lot easier after the jug. Also only used ome jam, as there are holds in the crack most of the way. Took a few attempts to get it, yo-yoing with a few takes and a painful fall - belayer having to stand a bit far back and low crux made for bad rope burn, including rope burn to the eye, which is a new record for me! Pleased to get it from the ground eventually though.
