8m. The cracked arete is another steep one, though short-lived.

A steep start leads to some hidden holds where you wouldn't expect, then some good jams in very rough rock.

Not worth a star, pretty pants with irritating moves

Pure hard work.

A short lived battle. Felt harder than most VS's.
Kevin Kilroy - 12/Nov/07

Hardly worth it, extended boulder problem with average hand jamming above. Over 'fore you know it.
Dave Foster - 15/Jul/08

Not nice 5a i would say and harder than the classic VS @the crag
Simon - 31/Aug/08

A struggle but one that I enjoyed. Definitely felt more like VS, shame it doesn't go on for longer.
