βeta: Best Crack climb in Wales RockFax has the line wrong. Don't go out into the flake. Go straight up. It's not the E2 line the guide has up.

βeta: Take triples of gold (BD 2, Dragon 4) two large blue (BD 3, Dragon 5) plus a large purple (BD 5, Dragon 7) and one or two red cams (BD 1, Dragon 3) A couple of thin slings can be draped over poor spikes too. Belay off a huge sling or rope clove-hitched to the embedded block just over the horizon from the top of the climb. Don\'t bother with the two, worn nut slots at the first possible stance, unless you\'re very nervous and want a back-up to the block.
