Rockfax Description
Brilliant but testing crack climbing that has plenty of gear. The initial thin crack opens up and then shuts down again, forcing a difficult step out right. Thereafter tackle the thinner cracks to easier ground at the diagonal break. © Rockfax

βeta: E1 5b, I think. Quite technical until the niche; not just 1 hard move. Therefore, even though it's well protectable, I feel it deserves the E point. Also, it's quite unique within the Lakes and probably worth *** in my view: there aren't loads of technical granite crack climbs in the area!
