Description:

The short, left facing corner to the left of Fisherman's Friend. Two rap bolts at the top. Originally given 5.10b, but much easier. It is possible to continue upwards to the top via a trio of parallel 5.11 slab pitches (This, That and The Other Thing) which begin from the rap rings.

Short but sweet, well not that sweet. Never knew the grade but 5.9 seems about right

3 out of 5 stars Fun short crack

Still a G safety even if you restrict yourself to passive pro. Good practise.
