Rockfax Description
A breathtaking pitch of outstanding quality. The technical thin crack leads to a rest below the overhang then traverse up and left until a good horizontal break is reached. Move back right and make a tricky move to gain a good ledge. From here a crucial precarious layaway move leads to the horn and a delicate finish. © Rockfax

Excellent climb, why haven't I led this sooner! The start is hard and awkward - but jugs and easy ground soon arrived. Best climbed aggressively and confidently. After the start it's fun but not-too-tricky (presumably harder if you're short though?). Tricky to get any good gear in the upper-half.

Force 9 gale. Nice route but would have been even nicer without the wind. Tactically a bit all over the place but no moves felt too hard. Kept fiddling in gear from awkward positions and then finding a great rest two moves on. Retreated for a rest a couple of times. Would be nice to try again in summer. Oh yeah. Retreated for a rest on the ground after placing first gear for a rest. Not sure of the ethics of that

I understand now why the traverse was so much harder the first time I did this than the second. The first time I traversed on the lower break, legs flailing on nothing and essentially traversing into the end of the Link with worse gear in a worse place. Makes sense to step up to the higher break further left before starting the traverse.

Awesome, awesome route, done in the minutes before the heavens opened. The lower crack is fine as long as you don't spend long placing your gear. Bomber midsize cams can be placed high in worn placements after the first couple of moves before powering through to the good holds and ledge above. Arms were within seconds of failure when moving out to the ledge but just managed to stick it. One more balancey move above. Definitely in my top three leads to date.

After a tough start the route eases and reaches a secondary, minor crux to reach the horn and then the top. A great, varied route and lots of fun.

Rested on the start crack and lowered off (found crack to be the crux). Pulled ropes and led clean. Really enjoyable!

Flippin' brilliant, had me smiling all the way up. The wandering line that evades the overhang really adds to the experience. Felt easy for the grade, but I imagine the mantel without the right sized cam would spice it up a bit!

Hard pumpy start, especially hanging around to get gear in. Found it a real struggle. Took me 3 goes up and down climbing the first 4 metres. once round the overhang, accidentally strayed onto the E1 which made it exciting before making the move round the corner and step up for the horn. Nice climbing up the breaks to the finish.

My first HVS. Pumpy start but good protection once you get yourself settled at 5m. Need 3.5 cam at least to protect for the second crux. Only had a 3 so mentally solo'd the top 10m. Would like to try again with the right protection and concentrate on the climb rather than the fall!

Reaver2k 24/Apr/09 Lead O/S

Found this pretty steady at HVS to be honest. The bottom crack is awkward, but not actually hard. Good gear also. Once established on the ledge the moves up left are easy, then the moves back right at easy. The mantleshelf takes a good big piece of gear, and is a pretty hefty mantleshelf up to relatively poor holds at first. Then a bomber nut up and right for moves onto the horn which are a little bit strenous. And finish easily. Mid-range is not low-end HVS if you ask me.

Rob got to the end of "the tanganyika traverse" then realised he needed a large "friend" to protect the mantleshelf. a good 5 or 10 minutes elapsed with Rob lowering down one of the ropes for me to tie the friend on and Rob haul it back up,all done with one hand of course! He finished in fine style for another top lead.
