Rockfax Description
The standout Yat classic HVS. High in the grade but with fine moves and plenty of protection possibilities. Move up to a ledge at the base of a long thin crackline. Follow the crack up the wall to easier ground and a large block belay. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
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.
