UKC

32m. Climb on to the large ledge at the base of the crack. The thin crack is long, but featuresome, there are steep pumpy sections, but plenty of gear; a great route to hone your crack skills. After the crack proper, congratulate yourself to a well earned, exposed view up the valley before finishing on easier ground to a large block belay and enjoy watching your partner extract the gear from the choice finger holds. One of the best lime cracks in the country and a Yat uber classic HVS test piece.

C Milford, B Hocken Jul/1972.
