110m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
(The Puff Crack) The right-hand crack is excellent. Where the crack runs out, the route continues up the bold protectionless slabs above. The old grade for the crux pitch of N5+ gave a few folks a moment or two of self doubt. Start as for the previous route in a vegetated bay below and left of the cracks (which can't be seen), with a flake-crack on its right-hand side.

1) N5, 25m. Climb up left then right on grass ledges to the flake. Move right and continue up more flakes and cracks to an awkward stance at the foot of the main crack or continue.
2) N5+, 30m. Continue up the finger-jamming crack that splits the clean white slab to a ramp at the top of the crack and a small stance. A superb, sustained and well-protected pitch.
3) N6, 30m. Traverse right, across ledges, and up a flake to below a slab. Climb up then move right to gain a spike runner (last gear). Move back left and trend left towards the top of the brown streak. A bold pitch which is especially worrying early in the season when it can be dirty/gritty. There is an easier but equally bold variation up the right arete.
4) N5-, 20m. Climb a short ramp then move out left to gain the final crack. Climb this, which eventually becomes vegetated towards the top. © Rockfax

Great climb, led P2 and P4. Crack on P2 is fantastic! P3 was well spicy - no gear!

Second pitch is a brilliant crack. Third pitch is easy but hard to protect. Slinging the flake works nicely. Forth pitch pretty good.

Lovely. Nice and sunny. Scary holdless run out for 7m off a tied off tiny hollow flake with the sling on my cam

Super route! Did climb as described on P3 (up/left), it was fine - moss didn't affect matters

With Helen. 3rd pitch is ok if you go straight up from the flake runner, about 2 metres left of right hand arête. E1/2 5a/5b. Small cams in flake protect upper crux. No one seems to climb left from the flake as the guidebook suggests - mossy!

Ferdia lead the 1st pitch. Getting to the belay of P1 on second it began to rain. I climbed faster but we had to retreat due to rain. Got quite wet and left loads of gear. That afternoon we retrieved the gear by abseiling from the top of the crag on two 60m ropes tied together. A fun exercise in the rain which was faffy but epic free...!

Led p1 & p3. P3 was a bit of a shock to the system - bold, smeary and dirty - glad to see it's had an upgrade to n6 in the update.

I lead p1 and 3, The line of P3 is very unclear....I started up the rampline which is bold in the extreme. I reversed this after a few metres as I could see a flake further right so I climbed up to this placed a well dodgy nut and went straight up from there a few meters right of the arete. There is another poor runner just below the dirty top (small cam under a flared flake). I also belayed from here as you would have a knighmare with the rope if you walked along the legde as directed in the guide
