Lizzy on Tips. It feels much steeper than it looks...

Description 

Brutal face moves start past a bolt are free @ 5.12a (ha) but it is easier to use an aider to cheat to get to the crack. Really sound finger crack (albeit a little flaky circa 1994) lead up to anchors.

1980's photos of Peter Croft soloing the route float around climbing rags of the era. One of the best finger cracks in the Valley off the ground (a must do- please someone post a photo!), but lacks only a good start (being the crack does not touch down).

Location 

up a semi steep hill through trees to the base of the wall.

Protection 

bolt, small stoppers and tcu's
