Rockfax Description
Sustained but well-protected climbing up the crack, with a flaky exit to the right. Alternatively climb the steep and juggy (if illogical!) finish up the tower above and left (VS 4c). © Rockfax

βeta: The crack is a good HS 4b and the left tower a well protected low in the grade VS 4c. However, you get funny looks from walkers on the top when grunting up the tower as it's easy to walk round the side!

βeta: The left hand tower is the better and more consistent finish; outrageously steep but on good jugs. Probably VS 4c but over very quickly and well-protected with cams so not high in the grade. The initial crack is not much easier IMHO but has even better pro.
