Rockfax Description
One of the finest finger-cracks in the country sees many attempts and many failures. The initial leaning fissure is as hard as anything on the route (feels like 6b ) although the leftwards traverse is also taxing. Above this steady climbing leads to a reasonable rest ledge before the breathtaking final crack where many attempts flounder. An essential E5 tick. © Rockfax

βeta: The bottom is quite powerful, but not quite 6b. The top section is delicate and rather hard for people with fat fingers or tired arms! 1st 2 pegs are crap.
