Rockfax Description
A superb crack in the wall right of Crithmum which is better now that Crithmum is further away! Climb Crithmum to the base of its upper corner then step up right into the crack. This gives sustained and interesting climbing with one tricky section. A gem! © Rockfax

βeta: Amazing jams and good gear. Took me a few times to work out the crux. Glad to get this. Inspired by the picture in the guide.

βeta: I too thought I was on Meridian, trying to escape the horror show that is now Crithmum. (August 05) Glad to hear that other people hadn't heard about its fate. Although I used to lead E2, the thin, unprotected moves I soon encountered once the crack ran out were too much for the current wimpy me, and I made moves right and right again and ended up in what turned out to be Meridian.
