Rockfax Description
The thin crack is awkward to start (almost 5a ), passing an ancient peg scar (tut, tut!) and features excellent jamming above. © Rockfax

Wonderful route, nice overhangy bit without pushing the grade too hard.

A pure onsight. Didn't have a routes guide as I came to boulder but decided this looked nice and steady enough that I'd be OK. Nice and positive all the way - was surprised it turned out to be as hard as VS when I looked it up later!

On second attempt I managed the first section but just couldn't pull through the roof. Will be back soon to try again!

Little bit broken in the middle with the step over overlap... Felt harder than it should have done probably.

Getting into the upper part of the route took a bit of commitment because the ledge below was so good!
