BETA PHOTO: The obvious "Handcrack Corner".


Respecting the Law (aka Handcrack Corner) is an alright crack for a limestone crag. Climb the obvious, left-facing corner that steepens at the top. It is often wet.


This is the obvious crack encountered towards the right side of the Futurescape Wall (Roof Area).


Mostly hand-sized gear. It finishes at chains.

Great little crack! Slightly sandbagged. Enjoy.
