The first continuous crack leads up steps to steeper moves and ledges on the left. Meander up easier rock to finish.

If you don't step out right near the top, this is much harder than Nailsbane.

I agree the, top crack is wierd- my first real lead

An excellent first lead - plenty of gear placements to practice on!

My second lead (straight after Nailsbane) and I must say I thought it was great. Very straightforward climb - I didn't like topping out but that's probably most likely that I am not used to it, rather than anything else. (Plus it's very 'gravelly' on the old knees!! Ouch) All the placements were easy and plenty of comfortable places for the feet while chosing/placing the gear.
