Tim seconding up Elgin's Crack


In the middle of the East Face lies the brilliant crack.

Steep classic crack climbing leads up the wall, giving technical but safe climbing.

A liked this climb a lot, best one I did at Limekilns. Supposedly soft for the grade, but felt like 5.10C to me. British rating of E2 5C
