This is the crack/chimney that runs up the main face just to the right of Lieback Annie. It goes from fingers to hand to offwidth to chimney. Haven't looked at it in a zillion years so I don't know if bushes and such have grown in and choked it up since then, but it was a fun little climb in its time.

5 out of 5 stars Clean and fun.

It has recently been cleaned and is now a glorious third route on Lower Gibraltar. Lots of fun if you keep to the chimney.
