8m. An oddly-named thin crack. Awkward though safe enough with fiddly gear and perhaps easier if you can keep moving.

Quite tricky but good pro. The trick is getting from the big jug half way up on the RHS to the big ledge. Stiff at VS.

Typical Curbar - pleasant climbing but steep and tedious fiddling in gear.

didn't find any problems fiddling in gear, just banged a number 1 cam in. it's a strenuous climb & i rekon you need to keep on the move

keeping on the move is the key. All that crack makes it really tempting to over do it on the gear, which is what I did and got tired.

Seconded this and found it really nice, top end VS though!
