Rockfax Description
A good route that requires large hexes or cams. Start just right of Monolith Crack.
1) 4b, 15m. Ascend the square corner to a sloping ledge. Move along this to its right-hand end and a groove with a wide crack. Without large gear a bold move is required to gain the slab above. Head up the slab to belay below twin cracks.
2) 4a, 15m. The right-hand crack provides another challenge until easier ground leads to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Previous comments about big gear meaning giant gear are correct (Dragon 5 too small on p1). P2 if you climb onto the tall block (not sure if that is the twin cracks from the topo) it is nowhere close to 4a (much harder).
