A superb sustained pitch, on which the gear is perfect, but hard work to place. A loose wall (old peg and good small wires) leads to the bulge that guards the crack, pull over this then press on rapidly up the soaring line. A couple of bridged rests are available for the long legged but the ability to press on will be found of more use.
