UKC

18m.

Rockfax Description
18m. A major classic, the luminous crack is usually dryer than it looks - pity about the pigeon poo. The final bulging section often proves more difficult than you might expect, try bridging it. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Layback and bridge the green corner crack up and rightwards till a hard move into the upper confined corner is possible. The final steep corner maintains interest and is best bridged.

βeta: Wowser! Messed around at the crux a few times, lowered off, let my partner have a stab, messed around at the crux, lowered off.......went up again and traversed further to the right to find a brilliant hold.....got to the rest a few seconds later, stayed for a long time.
