Rockfax Description
The left-hand crack is approached up a straightforward clean-cut groove to reach a recess. Steep and insecure moves gain the upper cave then good jamming leads to an awkward exit. © Rockfax

βeta: Enjoy the pleasant climbing up the initial corner and the final jamming crack, because the middle section is hideous! Hard work with nothing much for the feet...
