Another classic HVS at Shorn Cliff, strenuous and tough for the grade (especially if your jamming is a bit rusty!) but well protected throughout.

It's pretty obvious where to go on this one: start up the crack, past a small roof (crux) where the crack widens. A few tricky moves remain...


Right at the top of the R4 approach path, the unmistakable white-stained crack line.


finger to hand size nuts and cams. Tree anchor at the top, set a little way back from the edge. Please use this anchor rather than one of the trees closer to the edge, to avoid doing any further damage.
