Rockfax Description
A blank corner and desperate roof crack give a 70s classic.
1) E3 6b. Hard bridging moves (loads of small wires) lead up the corner to a belay below the roof. Often climbed on its own.
2) 6b. Stretch into the roof-crack, shuffle towards the lip with your feet on the side-wall then levitate the final moves. © Rockfax

FA. John Allen, Steve Bancroft 1976
