Jo Frances on Gecko Groove


An excellent climb up a crack system. Crack slowly widens to #4 Camalot for most of the second half. Some face holds when you need them.


Right end of cracks wall. Crack system 3m left of arÍte. Small stone labelled "GG"


Cams, wires. Take atleast one #4 camalot or equivalent for the top unless you really like large runouts . Bolted belay at top recently added.
