Goliath's Groove*** HVS 5a
[Goliath's Groove, 2 kb]22m.

Rockfax Description
The fine twisting groove is one of the best routes on the crag though not all agree! The initial corner is the thrutchy crux for many, it is usually wedged and jammed facing right, though it can also be layback or even bridged, facing in or out! The midway ledge offers some respite then the upper bulging groove can be laybacked or bridged elegantly to easy ground. © ROCKFAX

Sam McCarthy - Lead G/U - 04/Oct/15 with Pete Clarke

Martin Bagshaw - Lead O/S - 03/Oct/15 with Martin Weißmann

Start was incredibly desperate, tried the beta from some guy at the bottom and just kind of fell from the groove. Ended up bridging which was really cool. Shame one of the cams got stuck and spent the best part of an hour trying to get it out; perseverance is key!

Slipped of laughing to much so started again and got it, found the start pretty desperate but the rest was a walk in the park!

Counting this as clean even though I had to sit on the rope to try (unsuccessfully) to get a jammed nut out, and then the heavens opened and I slipped off once due to wet rock. Would totally have got it clean otherwise... Laybacked up the first few meters which worked
Montecore - 2nd O/S - 22/Aug/15 with Ben Whittaker

Led this at the end of the day after doing loads of bouldering at the plantation (somehow). Not sure laybacking is even possible anymore. I thrutched the wide starting crack which felt just about okay, the rest of the route was easy. Lots of cams help (having a big one especially good for the start)

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!

JamesRich - 2nd dog - 10/Aug/13 with Rob stanfield, Jack Bradbrook

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.

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

wahniel - Lead O/S - 11/Apr/09 with Gerd Heinz Bentheim

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. Superb!

Was a bit green so fell off after a few meters....got back up it soon after. Brilliant climb easily worth 3 stars....straightforward yet strenuous laybacking all the way...not sure why you would bridge it. 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.
