An outstanding wall-climb that rates as one of the best pitches in the West Country. Start at the base of a right to left diagonal line of quartz cracks. Photo on page 106.
26m. Climb the diagonal cracks until it is possible to move up the wall to another left-trending crack. Follow the crack left until below a thin crack-line that heads up back right. Climb the thin cracks, peg, to a break and another peg before finishing steeply leftwards along the break.

This is an awesome an intricate line. Some say E5 6b, some E5 6a. Personally, I think it is E5 6a as my eyes weren't too far out on stalks as I did the crux. Good gear where it is needed. Certainly harder than Fay.

Brilliant climbing. Not much harder than Fay, good gear.
