Stepped Crack

The easy groove on the left has a strenuous entry.


For a Mod this has a very difficult start, unless yo're 7ft tall.

A beefy mantel or awkward grovel to the 1st ledge, then Mod above.
Chris Craggs - 04/Sep/03

I agree a diffucult start. Not Mod at all, atleast a Diff if not VD first move.

Easier if you jam your foot in on the right, not something that most climbing wallies would think of!

Getting your foot back out again is more of a problem! The start of the wall on the left with a rightwards finish (not touching the crack) is a pleasant severe

It's not a tricky start as long as you have a little udge experience! Not having the experience doesn't necessarily make the grade harder. Stick in a right hand chicken wing (elbow in first, palm on rock in front of you), then put the left foot on the low hold on the face and stick a right foot in as Iggy says and then wriggle up until you can get the (beta alert...) huge jug! Pull up a bit then get back in the groove and mantel.

A Fair Diff but a very tricky start for the grade
