The side wall of the classic Inverted V has several worthwhile and popular outings including the ever-popular Ellisís Eliminate, a good test of jamming ability, the technical Good Friday and the excellent but neglected Right Twin Crack. Left of these are a series of short walls with some easier climbs. Long ignored they feel like they should be across the road on Burbage, but do see a few ascents. Guidebook page 169.

Right Twin Crack
12m. Follow the right-hand crack. It gives good finger jamming and all the difficulties are well protected. A good first VS.
