Crime and Punishment
<< Public Enemy < Crime of the Century | War and Peace/Raskolnikov > Crimes of Passion >>
The main line of the wall is the long rugged crack which leads straight to the apex of the arch roof. Start below and right of the big crack.
1) 25m. Climb the wall on the right, move left into the crack and follow this to the roof. Swing wildly through the roof to a flake in the wall above. Move right along the lip to another flake which leads up to the main break. Traverse back left to belay.
2) 25m. Climb the wall behind the stance into a groove which leads to the upper break. Step 5m left and climb a tottering groove to the top. Alternatively finish as for 'Crime of the Century'.

Quite intimidating. A dynamic approach is needed at the roof. Well protected (if you trust the thread).
