UKC

Rockfax Description
One for fans of jamming, that has good protection but takes scalps. Start on a very narrow path above a drop.
1) 5a, 13m. The corner-crack to the midway ledge and belay.
2) 5c, 15m. The wall above the belay is a little bold but quickly gains the break under the crack guarded by an overhang. Make a steep move past a pocket to enter the crack and fight up it to a thread at the upper horizontal break. Climb up left to a final crack (thread) and finish up it. © Rockfax

βeta: Broke off the left hand jug at the 1st crux of pitch 2 - never trust limestone!! This section is now slightly harder as cupped hand jams are the only option (at least for my hand size) where before there was a comfy jug. I reckon still 5c though.

βeta: this is high E2 as the votes reflect, but excellent gear and good rests mean it is miles from E3 unless you can't do a couple of HVS style jamming moves.

βeta: poor rock quality on p1. hard for the grade unless you specialise in strenuous dusty cracks
