Two features mark out the next areas. The T crack is on the right of a steep and rather unattractive looking wall - oddly it is home to some excellent routes. Past the crag's last great challenge is a large cross-shaped crack high on the wall. Most folks just call in to do the classic crack of The Crucifix and the pleasant arete of The Gauntlet. The two other striking lines of The Prow and Hourglass Chimney see less attention. Guidebook page 338.
