Vicious finger pockets in the steep bulging crack prove a test of not only strength, but resistance to pain. Judicious use of the small yew tree gains the crack (thread and two pegs). At the top of the crack there is a good medium wire from where a final stiff pull gains easier ground and the lower-off. Climbed with gear in place it is 7b+.

Can I bolt it ?

Come on Rob, its the best protected hard limestone trad route on the crag and it certainly doesn't need bolting.

Only Kidding Lee, I can`t beleive the thread I put in it eight years ago is still there. If you ever want to replace it take a coat hanger.
