UKC

Rockfax Description
A direct assault on the overhanging crack system above the first pitch of The Gordian Knot proves to be a fantastic pitch. Good protection. Start as for The Gordian Knot.
1) 4b, 22m. Climb the wall and groove to a ledge and belay below the overhang.
2) 5c, 30m. Climb the overhanging crack-line to the traverse of Haste Not. Pull over the overhang above the traverse at a crack and follow it a short distance to ledges. Finish up the easier slabby wall above. © Rockfax

βeta: Be careful where you place gear on pitch 2 - you may mess up the best finger jam - which isnt that good anyway!. There is a good small belay on the Haste Not traverse - which may be useful to avoid too much rope stretch for a struggling second - and to keep them in sight (mentioned in FRCC and Wired guides).
