Follow the right-slanting crack to its end and then continue up the bulging wall rightwards on green sloping holds. Protection is poor though it is possible (and sensible) to move left at the break to get good cams.


Thought this a well protected romp, positive crack, one 5a move, followed by shelves you could sink in up to the shoulder, if so inclined.

'Poorly protected' == no protection at all!

Moderately crucial large Friend on the far left before you start the upper wall.

Nice crack and top section felt fine if you were to keep your cool. Number twelvety cam required to make it safe.

Gear on the left is easily reachable from the holds at the top of the crack. It would be "a dangerous exercise in pointless pedantry" to try to avoid it's presence.
