Rockfax Description
The short right-angled corner-crack starts from a ledge and many find it is just too thin for good jams. © Rockfax

βeta: My hands aren't small, yet the jams were perfect until the last bit where a layback became necessary. Lovely route!

βeta: Its a lovely pure crack line. However, anyone who thinks this is VS is deluding themselves ! Its very short, totally protectable and not overly technical. Jam it if its damp.

βeta: very simple and whole thing can be over in an instant.probably only vs cos if one piece of gear then sprint for the top could leave a fall close to the ground from the top. but still top easy for that
