Tim on Crack Abuser (8A) photo: Blake collection

Tim Blake has climbed the infamous crack project at Rhiw Goch (see page 398 in the NWB 3.1 guide). This innocuous looking line has repelled all comers for many years.

Heres what Tim had to say about it:

Im very unsure of the grade to be honest. The climbing is good, but quite odd. It felt as though it could be 8A, but possibly easier in less warm weather? It took two sessions with the right beta. I had tried it last year a couple of times but had got a bit stuck on it so left it for a while.
