Starting the crux of Bull's Crack (photo by Phil A...

Description 

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.

Location 

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

Protection 

Standard rack, but add some extra large cams.
