UKC

12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The crack starts from a sentry box and gives good climbing to a naughty finish up the widening and undercut crack. It is possible to avoid the last few moves by traversing the break leftwards to give a one star HS 4b. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Steady climbing to the last ledge to where a thrutch up the final crack awaits. A lot of parties move off sideways here at 4b. Large cam useful for that last crux section.

Pre 1957, possibly the E.Y.M.C..
