Rockfax Description
The prominent crackline has a strenuous start with good but hard-earned gear. The crack is gained either directly or from the right. Follow it past a large open bay near the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Very steep at the start with some hard-earned gear. Take a Friend 4 for some quick gear where it matters.
