Description

The most classic HVS at Millstone, no pushover at the grade. The start is easy but the crux at 40' is a finger crack in a corner, usually laybacked - best done quickly. The upper section is easier than it looks thanks to some helpful face holds.

Location

Great North Road is the major corner feature left of the Embankment. The upper section is a left-facing diedre capped by an overhang.

Protection

Standard rack, but a couple of 0.5" cams are useful for the crux finger crack. 50 metre ropes are needed to reach fencepost belays at the top.
