Low in the grade but a bit bold. Follow the crack to a poor rest below the blank upper section. Build a safety net then balance left, high or low, to better holds. Either finish straight up or continue traversing to finish close to Embankment 3 - both options are about the same grade and equally scary.

The first crack is no pushover - harder than Embankment 3 and 4. The crux is safe, though -
a long fall but harmless.

Traverse low then mantle your way up.

nothing like making it hard, eh? mantelling? i'd pay good money to see that, i would!

for 5c this felt straightforward; the fall wouldnt be very nice to take though (in reality almost certainly completely safe) - gear is very good. i thought one of the moves near the top of the crack required more thought than the crux. very enjoyable.

Shouldn't the pumpy symbol be a fluttery one? It's not pumpy...

i got pumped on the lower crack, i agree with steveC. Did it the mantle way and found it hard with very lanky legs. good route
