A rambling section of the edge flanked on either side by more popular big hitters. An area to escape crowds without walking too far. For many years Straight Ahead was one of the cliff's biggest sandbags at Diff.

The right-hand side is harder and scarier to a tricky last move.

The left leaning groove leads past the roof - worth a quick look.

Straight Ahead
The widening chockstoned crack is a battle!­ Once one the toughest Diffs on the crag.

Blue Fluff
Thin cracks lead to bold climbing up the wall and onto the gripping rounded rib above.

Don't Fluff It
The wall above a block leads to a rest on the right. Finish precariously up the rib above on poor holds.

Symbiosis
The slabby arete has little in the way of meaningful gear.
