Rockfax Description
Climb the right-hand continuous crack directly, initially up an awkward right-facing corner. The crack is a good intro to the art of hand-jamming being both mild and very protectable. © Rockfax

βeta: This is certainly HS 4b, a good route but the worst on the Trinity wall.

βeta: Led this in January, then seconded today. The crux is figuring out how to get over the bulge at half height. If you get it right (like I did today) then it's 4a. It's hard to figure out though and I didn't find it at all obvious first time - making this feel awkward 4b/4c. A must-do-classic all the same.

βeta: I also felt that it was harder than Xmas Crack and I did them back to back. Partner (seconding) only managed start with coaching and failed on the bulge which I believe was harder and more like 4b.

βeta: severe 4b covers it, there is 1 hard move off a good ledge with a good runner at your waist, everything else is not too hard, a very good route though
