22m. Follow the strenuous thin crack in the wall to a possible stance - block belay. Pull boldly over a bulge and climb the wide crack/groove (big gear) to the capping roof, which is climbed on the left (as for Crack and Corner) on surprising holds.

First pitch at least 4c, possibly 5a. Hard moves and then a dirty, loose finish. Second pitch - no protection at all up short, nasty, unobvious wall of about 4b. Whole route winds up to being much harder than Crack and Corner. (VS 4c?)

have u got the wrong route, Mr Gordon Stainforth? I led that second pitch and placed eight or nine bits of bomber gear. definfitrly a HS 4a, highly recommended with a top quailty finish (look for the hidden hold).

Both pitches felt 4c - the first crack being strenous, the final one being just plain hilarious. Good gear throughout, no sign any any "nasty" wall

Had the same problem as the original poster. Followed the line in the guide (I thought) and protectionless finish with huge run-out to a sling on a spike.
