Rockfax Description
The continuous crack-line up the right-hand side of the face is just a touch wide for comfort. It gives a poorly-protected pitch without some really large gear. Low in the grade. © Rockfax

βeta: I didn't have anything larger than a no. 3 camalot, and definitely wouldn't give it higher than HS 4b...

βeta: The crux is definitely not well-protected unless you have very large gear - a no 3 camalot doesn't even come close. Would be HS 4b with huge cams/hexes, probably VS 4b without. Quite green and slippery near thye bottom, improves with height.
