Rockfax Description
Brilliant; one the crag's strongest lines. Low in the grade. Climbing with your hands in the break provides the best protection, feet in the break is less strenuous and much more scary! Climb up to the square pocket, then follow the rising break all the way to Left Edge, and finish up this. © Rockfax

βeta: Really enjoyed this route would have liked to have led it. Gear is minimal and a little sketchy. Liked the constant movement getting above and then below the crack. Great climb!

βeta: I opted for using the ledge for my feet – def seemed easier than what I\'d watched Alex do on lead
