Rockfax Description
18m. A major classic, the luminous crack is usually dryer than it looks - pity about the pigeon poo. The final bulging section often proves more difficult than you might expect, try bridging it. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Layback and bridge the green corner crack up and rightwards till a hard move into the upper confined corner is possible. The final steep corner maintains interest and is best bridged.

I tried to second this climb about 2 years ago and got lowered off from the second crux (the top out). This afternoon I led it with no falls. Very awkward gear, tricky moves to enter the chimney at the half-way point and a technical top-out makes this the hardest VS I have climbed. Still not HVS though. You get a no hands rest once established in the chimney.
