Rockfax Description
The thin right-hand crack above the ledge gives painful, finger-shredding climbing. It is in a very impressive situation but prepare yourself for a real battle; the climbing is not to everyone's liking. Climb easily up the rib as for Diagnosis, to a ledge. Move up into the crack and climb it all the way to the top. © Rockfax
