An outstanding Swanage classic up the steep cracks and over a mid-height bulge on the left-hand side of the wall. Very pumpy but well protected. Start at a slab just right of the base of the crack-line. Follow the slab easily left to the base of the crack and climb it to the mid-height break. Pull through the steep bulge above to a shake-out at a good hold on the left. Continue up the thinner (but less steep) crack above the good hold to a point where a step left gains easier climbing and the top. © Rockfax
