12m. The flake crack is Western Grit's answer to Stanage's Heaven Crack, and its a good effort.
Much better than Heaven Crack! Really one of the nicest easy climbs I've done on grit. Looks harder than it is, feels fantastic to climb.
Storming. Possibly severe.
Totally brilliant! The mildest layback crack in the world, and swallows medium wires all the way up. About the best low-grade climb I've done
Easy once started but getting established is tough, id say it needed a tech grade of 4a at least. Nice route though HVD is probably about right overall. Great for learning to layback!
Didn't find it that great, but I might have done it on the wrong day: it was quite green and a bit wet, which made me loose my composure for a bit. Felt hard, but probably the right grade in good conditions.
Having climbed Heaven Crack the other day, Answer crack is definitely better IMO. More interesting and in a better position (Dovestones beats Stanage any day). Heaven Crack is a jug-fest and probably 2 grades easier.
Absolutley brilliant, best route of its grade on Dovvies and deserves the three stars, infact give it four stars!
first proper layback climb i have done and proberbly the last
