Rockfax Description
This route is actually called Penny, however the name has been known for longer as Katana (a Japanese sword) which is a much better name describing the look and feel of the diagonal slit across the wall. It is a sustained affair and a real test-piece. Start just left of the crack, and make a difficult and committing move to gain it. Follow it to King Bee Crack, and on to the top. © Rockfax
