Rockfax Description
The right-hand crack is equally popular but tends to be a little dirtier if anything due to it being right in the abseil line. © Rockfax

βeta: It doesn't look much but the moves are good and the bulgy bit is interesting: agree with above comments. It's great for a poor day or when things are quiet.

βeta: Much better than it looks, but it is a popular abseil line, so be really careful.

βeta: Polish not a problem on this. The holds are big enough to cope. Good climbing.
