18m.

Rockfax Description
18m. The magnificent central crack set in a shallow groove is approached from a cave recess. It is delicate up the ramp and strenuous up the groove - hence the name. A rounded exit completes the job. According to an acquaintance who has been to Thailand, it is nothing like an elephant's arse! © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown late 1950s.

βeta: Bit of a sketchy move to complete the traverse to the crack, but then fine climbing in some great positions :)
