Description:

The obvious crack splitting the wall, the only route with a bolt (near the bottom) so its easy to find. ALthough its rated C3, I found it to be an easy route, and a lot of fun. It has seen a top rope free ascent at 5.13a by Dave Lepard in 2002. The aid line was first put up in 1978!

4 out of 5 stars First Aid

Did it on a top rope as I was learning to aid climb (thanks Cory!). It is pretty straight forward. I did 1 hooking move mostly just for fun. The last piece is a bit tricky to place as the crack flairs inwards. It is in a nice secluded area. Rates a C3 I think, definitely is easier than that.
