Rockfax Description
The superb leaning crack is quite steady up to two-thirds height, and then it starts to turn mean. Long reaches, thin jams and a tricky exit all add up to make an arduous but high-quality outing. © Rockfax

βeta: Hard for E3 when wet! It's definitely not reachy though (unless you have very poor technique). You just have to use some lovely flared jams and it's all good. Pumpy topout as well.

βeta: The top crack can take a lot of drainage and it can be wetter in the crack than it appears from below. A three star route even in this condition -as to whoever voted no stars - your opinion deserves no respect.
