Rockfax Description
12m. Start up the crack to the first ledge then move right and hand traverse the edge of the crack until access to the wider curving continuation crack is possible. Pull into this and wriggle though the cliff to reach Layback on the opposite face and finish up this - bizarre. © Rockfax

This climb is crazy, more like pretending to be a caterpillar in a chimney than actually climbing!

Very sandy at the start of the crescent, and I didn't have large enough gear on my rack to protect the route from a fall. Decided to back of and leave it for another day.

Great little adventure climb with a bit of a squeeze!

Difficult squeeze in as not many holds or protection. Wouldn't want to be a big guy fitting in here!! Gets wider at other side...difficult climb down off the top as not great retrievable abseils. But an interesting caterpillar style climb. :-)

Wasn't sure about the offwidth, so did Crescent Wall instead.

Brilliant. If you come here, you have to climb it.

Very interesting; half the climb is climbing, the other half, worming.
