UKC

12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The best of the quartet gives classic jamming/laybacking (quite steep but fine once you commit to the moves) to a rest on a ledge on the left, and then more of the same to the top. It's a relief to find that the exit is reasonably straightforward. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The most popular of the three VS cracks on this buttress and the easiest. The first crack to the left of 'Cracked Corner'. No further description needed.

βeta: I seconded this on 28-08-2007. Stood at the bottom looking up I was apprehensive. We did the climb using lean back technique, only my technique leaves something to be desired and hence I was quickly exhausted. Not for the faint hearted...or weak.
