The crack can be led and has decent gear. Often damp, when it is harder and much less worthy!

The only seriously over-graded route at Pex? (Get your easy tick in before it's corrected!)

Never E3 in a million years! Solid E1 5b. Good route though.

Local opinion agrees that this is overgraded. Dry and clean (which it hardly ever is) it would be E1 5b. In its usual state (we are trying to clean it up!) it is E2.

Each wall immediately to the side of the crack (without using it!) goes at a reachy and pumpy 6b - The Fly to the left (looking in) and Spiderman to the right. If you are smaller than 6' 4 you can be forgiven one use of the crack at the top!

E1 5b ** (OS Lead). Comments are spot on for this, steady E1 in good conditions, a lot harder and no stars when damp! A great climb with nice moves, really excellent protection, and a hint of the pump.
