UKC

12m.

Rockfax Description
10m. The wide crack with a kink at two thirds height is another slippery customer. Originally it started up Central Crack, and the linking section can still be stomach traversed by those who want to be historically correct - don't forget the tweeds. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the hanging crack with difficulty until established on a ledge. Finish easier up rounded bulges. The climb originally got it's name by starting in the wide crack to the left and squirming right along the ledge.

pre 1894.
