Rockfax Description
The ever-leaning crack in the left-hand side of the gully would be a mega-classic in a more open setting. Here it is well-named, moody and magnificent. Jam the never-ending series of overhangs to the great boulder blocking the rift then make a tricky traverse left to a difficult exit where big fists sure help. © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown 1958.

βeta: One of my favourites. Absolutely brilliant, despite its dirt and gloom. Lots of character!

βeta: There was a grim, dark, dreek place; and there lived fierceness and brutalization. Utterly bloody brilliant though. Tetanus shots advised.

βeta: i thought I saw the FA of this route, It may have been Brown repeating it but morty definitely followed brown up it, in the dark cursing that he couldn't see any holds. All the Rock and ice were there, a good bouldering session was held with Roscoe and big Ally Taylor doing the most..Audrey whillans will have dons records of if he did it.
