Rockfax Description
The clean-cut corner crack is a VS with attitude. With gear placed as high as possible, layback and jam with conviction and try not to pump out before the sanctuary of the horizontal break. A 'go for it' approach is a poor idea here. Move right a short distance and belly-flop over the top. For those who are not pumped senseless a direct exit is not much harder. © Rockfax

βeta: Colossal stuff, I reckon it's feasible (and possibly wise) to pause a few feet into the layback, for another runner - then go for the break! I had to walk to the crag (very pleasant by the river) from Hillsborough, which helped build motivation... A must for the VS leader, and jamming is another option!

βeta: A compelling line, and technically simple but, up to the break for feet and beyond, pumpy. I also had just done Croton Oil but I thought this a whole grade more difficult to lead.

βeta: Took a short fall, but then found it surprisingly easy when I actually did the moves properly and committed to the layback. Boldest bit was the slap for the top as I was too short to reach it static.

I was too tempted to rest with my hands in the horizontal break. Should have continued up for a couple more feet to get my feet in. Struggled with gear as the pump began. Had to get my second to perform a rather dynamic catch as I fell from well above the last piece of gear. Some quick placing cams would have helped... Will be back!
