start of the crack system

Description 

An excellent, sustained crack climb which builds to a tricky finale. Protection is ideal throughout, but don't hang around too long placing it. Although the wall looks to be covered in lichen from the bottom, the line of the route is clean.

P1, 40m, 5b.
Start at the base of the large, vegetated corner, which is followed for about 10m to reach a crack on the left wall. Climb a short way up the crack until it is necessary to step left into a second crack. Follow this steeply through a bulge to a decent rest near the top. Finish on excellent finger locks.
