Frank Bentwood at the crux.

Description 

The face between Suffering Catfish and 39 Steps.

Climb a delicate slab, with a pure friction crux (5.10-), then power over a bulge (5.11) to more delicate smearing (5.10-) to the top.


Protection 

6 bolts to a 2-bolt chain anchor. The crux is very well protected.

This felt a little hard at 11a. Really good though, just needs more traffic.

Thoughtful, sustained, well protected friction (if a tad grainy). Crux is delicate and powerful. Convenient bolt anchor for toproping (HUGE 14mm 50kN Petzl glue ins)
