UKC

45m.

Rockfax Description
Tremendous climbing that is both well protected and low in the grade. Start up ledges to beneath a low overhang with a crack through its centre. Pull over (also possible just to the left) and continue up the straight crack-line that passes three more overlaps to a ledge. Finish up a short corner. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The slightly wider crack line 3m right of Revelation. Well protected and low in the grade.
Climb the slab and then the crack formed by large jammed blocks (easier to the left) to the overlap. Surmount this and follow the crack past two more overlaps to an easier corner and the belay ledge.

R. McHaffie and J. Bosher Jul/1991.

βeta: Huge flake at initial layback crack sounded kinda hollow on gear removal. Fine for now; one to watch out for in the future

βeta: Think I preferred the HVSs to the right and left if this one if I’m being honest! It’s still a belting route though.
