Rockfax Description
The once-pegged crack is a classic pumpy pitch. It can be soloed by the talented and led by the merely good. Harder when damp and it usually is, though it eases with height. © Rockfax

FA. Rick Newcombe & Geoff Ashton, 1960s 1965.

βeta: Came last night and failed the onsite, took a rest, just over half way. Came tonight and got it clean!!! The crack was damp, but is it ever dry?

βeta: E2 5c *** (OS Lead). And solid at that - a substantial and meaty lead up one of the best lines here. Hardest (both climbing and protecting) low down, it eases off but remains distinctly uphill. Good name.
