Rockfax Description
24m. The striking zig-zag crack is the best known route in the quarry and remains one of Grit's 'big-ticks'. Climb easily to the base of the crack, stuff in some gear and go. Although mighty intimidating, the climbing is a little easier than it appears from below and much of the crack is a useful width. The short horizontal sections offer runners and holds. © Rockfax
