An excellent straight jamming crack swallows all the gear you can carry. Quite imposing though there a good jams and the odd flat hold on the walls to easy the narrower sections.

Embarrassingly this is the only VS I have ever fallen off (excuse: had just fallen of Gomorrah before it and was quite pumped), and can say with some authority that one should be very careful about using friends in this very parallel-sided and smooth crack. I ripped two friends before a hex stopped me. So it "swallows all the gear you place" but may well spit it out again afterwards. Take care.

A bonafide VS crack, that is steady with experience...

Solid 4c climbing, a must do if you are in the area, brilliant.

Naah, the cams are great. Sustained.

A mini-classic that climbs exactly how it looks (and also gets you one of the best VS photo-ticks ever). Possibly HS 4b for those with thin hands?
