This long straight crack is a must; mild for the grade, but sustained. Climb a V-groove to the crack and follow it with pleasure. The final leaning corner is awkward and there is also an exposed alternative out left. The only route in the Peak where you will be queuing every 25th December come hail or shine! © Rockfax
