BETA PHOTO: The Unamed crack on the south wall of The Blade


This route will test your crack climbing skills, it has no mercy, there is no time for rest. It might be short, but let me tell you I was knackered after the first 10 feet. It's slightly overhanging and off width, so watch out for the barndoor. Hint rap down and clean the route before climbing, it can be a little dirty and web infested.


Setting up a top rope is your best bet, the pro on lead might be tricky. Use a 15 foot piece of webbing and 2 #1's and 1 #0.5 cams to make a good solid anchor for top.
