1st ever climbing outdoors.with my friend who pushed me hard on three classic lines.No better way to be introduced to trad then be introduced to Goliath's Groove ill remember it well and will surely climb it again. The beginning I started lay back then near the tight section of the crack I foot jammed the rest and then managed to get on the ledge after alot of screaming and heavy breathing.I then rested on the ledge,the next half was not that hard just bridging felt nice and relaxed and the finger crack was superb for lay backs.A hard fun route.

The off width start gave me my money's worth. Lots of swearing & grunting, placed too much gear, took twice. The top crack was fun, but still difficult after the bottom struggle fest. Got the top clean. Bruised shoulder from that one!

Leg got really grated in the crack so decided to take it out and just bridge, which in hindsight was a bad idea as I fell off. Think the worst part was that some old guy started telling me how to climb it and then when it was his turn pissed up it. Well I guess that's just old skool routes for you.

My forth ever HVS and the third this weekend. Felt pretty steady the whole way up, placed gear in the upper finger crack and downclimbed for a rest at the ledge before blasting to the top. I've been staring longingly up at this line for years so it feels amazing to have climbed it in good style.
I thought the upper section was harder than the lower.

Blimey, the first section climbing the crack is a bit grouchy (thanks Nic!). An easy finish if you can feel your fingers or have any skin left on knees and elbows. Tom opted for facing the crack and jamming, I went for laying against the main wall with the crack on my left. Either way it way we both made some progress up and then a small slip down till we got to the top.

havnt enjoyed a route so much for ages.
have done this on second several years ago and possibly once before that I think. Really chuffed to have led it.
had no big gear for belay at top so used sling and belayed from very top to protect rope - turned out to be a mistake as led to bad rope drag lower down as ropes got pulled into cracks

Thrutching start after initial layback moves. Forgot to rack all the gear on the left for the fist half :o-) so made it more tricky than I should have. Great rest on ledge at half-time. Second half still technical and strenuous - the finger jams/layways were a bit sloppy, but it's really well protected.

No need to jam (except the odd foot torque) if you can handle the offwidth nature of it. should be on every aspiring uk crack meister's tick list as it is a fairly unique line.
Did seem top end 5a if not 5b.

Friction is a wonderful thing! Thought i'd try something other than the awkward thrutching i remembered from last year... surprisingly bridging was working so I just thought "go with it" - was constantly expecting to have to switch to layback or thrutchy jams but nope, its possible to bridge the whole of the lower wide groove! :0)
