Rockfax Description
The superb jamming-crack is sadly short-lived but near perfection whilst it lasts. The crucial thin lower section (5b for individuals with fat hands) can be passed using small edges on either side of the crack. © Rockfax

βeta: This has got rather polished over the 15 years since I last did it. Well protected and short-lived but must be approaching 5b technically now.
