[The Link (stanage), 1 kb]22m. A sustained way up the face though with good rests between the hard moves and low in the grade. Climb Congo Corner to where it heads off left. Then push on through the bulges, on creaky flakes, to where a swing left allows you to join Congo Corner again just below its upper crux. Finish up this. © ROCKFAX

dean79 - Lead dnf - 18/May/14

Took a 20ft lob after missing the grab for the ledge above the roof - quite exhilarating! Got back on and finished it but found the top wall quite bold. I did manage to wiggle in a wire at full stretch from the ledge, but the short won't be so fortunate. Excellent route.

Monkey_Alan - Lead dog - 15/Jun/13 with Tom Starks, Max Streeton

Hidden - Lead rpt - 09/Jun/13

Had about three attempts at the roof where I climbed back down to the ledge underneath. On the fourth got my hands up on the ledge above, but not in a rest position due to feet underneath overhang. Couldn't work out how to do move and gradually pumped out until I came off. Quite a long fall due to last gear below feet! Seems I needed to step round to the left to get to where Congo Corner goes up.

Was trying to save my energy for Tippler direct and was meant to be James lead but he couldn't figure out the crux and got very pumped so in the end he came down and I led the route (mostly on his gear) A nice route with the crux being not quite where you would expect it to be.

Superb. Got bomber gear in the vertical crack and then went for it. Fewer moves than I expected got me to the big reach. Thought I might have to pull up on the rounded sloping edge but then found the square cut hold and job done! Thought it was HVS and similar in difficulty and nature to The Sloth.

Great fun. Feels quite wild going up through the flakes (a few have evidently snapped off), but the gear's pretty good and the moves turn out not to be too hard. Still felt to me liked it deserves an E1, though. If you want to get gear in before doing the mantle, or just after the mantle, you need to have a big cam or two - if you don't I didn't), its really pretty bold.

Had just led Congo Corner so the first crack felt familiar, if not harder for some reason! Then after that, some brilliant roof moves. Would have been worried leading it, gear is bomber if you place it right though. Swing out and left whilst heelhooking the break all the way along, then a big reach up and finish up congo corner. Really nice, maybe one day....

First E1. A very stuck cam was a major contributor to me hanging off the rope, but pumped out doing the long crux. A properly good laugh that left my arms no loner functioning.

A classic route- surely one of the best on Stanage - varied, great postion and keeps you interested all the way. Shame the first couple of moves are getting a bit polished.
