Rockfax Description
A classic outing up the tallest buttress on the cliff. Start left of the buttress at grassy ledges. Traverse right along the break to the front face and climb polished holds to the notch by the pinnacle (a quick ascent is the norm) and a stance on a big boulder. A more direct version up the flake-crack is an option. Continue up the centre of the slab to steeper ground then traverse left at one of two levels to a short jamming crack - the final section of Black Crack. © Rockfax
