One of the finest finger-cracks in the country sees many attempts and many failures. The initial leaning fissure is as hard as anything on the route (feels like 6b ) although the leftwards traverse is also taxing. Above this steady climbing leads to a reasonable rest ledge before the breathtaking final crack where many attempts flounder. An essential E5 tick.
I personally find the bottom crack very hard - it feels solid 6B to me, the rest is immaculate sustained 5c/6A climbing
One of the finest routes in the country, well protected but probably 6b.
The bottom is quite powerful, but not quite 6b. The top section is delicate and rather hard for people with fat fingers or tired arms! 1st 2 pegs are crap.
The bottom peg is now missing. It was pulled of by a climber on Sat 31 May 08, who took a ground-fall.....he'll make a full recovery but is likely to in hospital for a while. If the second peg is in the same condition as this was I wouldn't even bother clipping it!
