12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. Climb a crack on the right (Four Purists, VS 5a) to the shelf (possible belay). From a lying-down position, attack the awesome roof crack which widens from hands to useless in a very short distance; holds out left help bridge the gap. Western roll into the final section and hoot for glory at having tamed the man-eater. A giant cam slammed into the crack makes it more like E3. © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown 1964 (one sling). FFA. Gabe Regan 1977.
