Sometimes graded as VS 4c (5.8) but it feels more like HVS 5b (5.9+) when the crack has an interior coating of damp, green moss, as it usually does even in dry spells of weather. Crux low down then great climbing to the top with plenty of good rests.


This route lies on one of the walls on the right-hand side of the quarry - an obvious jagged crack-line.


Lots of nuts and cams
