From the water move up the slightly overhanging start until you reach a crack. Follow the crack until you're about 3/4 up and mover right a few feet then go for the summit.


Upstream side of the Great North Wall. Crack runs for most of the climb. Easy to identify from the otherside of the river.

This is a great lead when the water is low. Protection is solid and right where you want it. Maybe a little runout at the top but a fall would clean and onto good gear.
