The straight crack. Many threads are in place.

Better to omit the threads from the description

Good route, well protected with nice moves, didn't feel much harder than Calcitron

I disagree with Felix - I thought this was a lot harder than Calcitron with some hard climbing in the first 10m and slightly tricky gear placed from strenuous and slightly serious positions. I thought nearly E4 and probably 6a. Classy though.

a nasty start, followed by a lovely top section; harder but not as good as Calcitron

great route, but pretty mean - when it gets hard, it just gets harder again and the gear is very strenuous to place with a definite splash potential if you pump out while placing it!

it took me 3 trips to get to the right spot for the abseil in for the routes off this ledge!! i kept ending up in Benny or on the Promenade! - try heading slightly west from the 2 abseil stakes at the small rocky bluff below and a little east of the mile marker - the stakes are below and between the mile marker and a little stile on the path (which is just east of the mile marker)

Have to disagree on comments about the abseil. Both the CC and Rockfax descriptions are clear and accurate, two stakes about 20m below and left of the mile marker. The stakes are a long way back from the edge, mind !
