The crack is straightforward until the overhang is reached. The move past this is the crux, but the squeeze chimney above is also entertaining. It is usual to take a breather on the large sloping ledge out right before struggling up the chimney.


The route is centre-stage in the main quarry, formed by a very obvious left-facing corner. Walk down.


Standard rack, but add some extra large cams.
