Wuthering*** E2 5b
[Wuthering, 2 kb]20m.

Rockfax Description
A devious but classic solution to this fine buttress. Climb the chimney (a high sling runner is naughty but normal) until it is possible to bridge along a low line of pockets and bounce onto the left-hand arete. Traverse left and up to a slot in the centre of the face - small gear. When suitably sorted, trend left to a shallow groove just short of the arete. © ROCKFAX

never hard, not sure if I got onto the buttress abit high or not. swung onto a good jug and foothold seemed the obvious & chalked way.

Up and down the gully a bit before i got to the right place to traverse out. Easy 5b but a bit run out.

Awesome! Great feeling topping out in the howling gale. Great belay position too. Move to reach the arete is solid 5b and really out there, rest is 5a max but feels a bit scary given the pendulum potential. Slot takes a lot of good gear. Worth E2 for the runout.

robman - Lead O/S - 24/Jun/14

found unclipping all the nice runners in the chimney, downclimbing, getting into the gymnastic bridge position and making the move across all a bit alarming, faced with what my imagination was turning into an El Capitan sized pendulum. I like the idea of 'bouncing' across the gap into the pocket a la the guide but once there nothing felt very bouncy. So I found a little edge round the arete and pulled across, usign the pocket to stop a barndoor. The mood changed once on the gorgeous slab, I could see the belayer and the sun was just going down on the summer solstice. A great way to end the day.

BigTone - 2nd O/S - 19/May/14

What a crazy route! This one will live on in memory for a while, the closest I can think of is Elegy - a completely improbable move that somehow works! Bridged out facing in, cursed my lack of flexibility and forgetting to do some stretching beforehand (felt like my hip was being wrenched out), grabbed hold of the pocket, got a bit more stretched out and finally decided to end the agony come what may by transferring the right foot onto the left wall. Ended up in perfect balance! Getting the left foot as far back as possible seemed to be the key. An easy traverse leftwards (the gear in the chimney was at chest/shoulder height at this point, which seemed fair enough - looking at some of the photos, some people place it much higher!) was followed by a juicy move to a good hold and gear, then a couple more tricky moves up the groove above the gear and an easier finish to the top with plenty of cams in the breaks (taken by Withering Heights). Turns out there is another(usual?) finish going up and left from the gear but the line I took made sense and was probably about the same difficulty. Johnny Dawes looked on from the ground, probably thinking of ways of hopping up it hands free.
Misha - Lead O/S - 14/May/14 with Eszter

31 years since doing this and the stretch across wasn't any easier! I was glad Rob had protected it for me with a high runner, as I sort of fell across the gap grabbing the pocket with both hands, amazingly I did it clean and didn't weight the rope! Rob led in fine style as usual.

lead with the cheeky high sling runner, reduces the fear factor of the bridge but virtually useless very soon after. Cold conditions and fingers, didn't take socks out of boots - mistake! slopey pockets lead across the slab to a half rest and a few mediocre cams then another few precarious moves to the top out. managed to keep it together nicely. Fantastic climb, will remember that one for a while. the phrase "heart in mouth.."

thought there would be more cool bridging so was Was slightly disappointed there was only really one bridging move to gain the pocket on the aręte and that it was straight forward (maybe my legs are too long or finally my foot work is improving?) but the climbing on the face was in a superb position more than made up for that, and overall still a Fantastic 3 star classic.

Belayed Ally, then pulled ropes and led on his gear. Funny move to get established on the side wall.

sweeeett! the bounce across feels totally unlikely but still turns out to be perfectly in balance. the salb until the gear is about 4c with big footholds tricky after gear

Found the bridging and bouncing onto the slab easy but the top felt more like 5b than 5a, and above a big fall. Rope drag a huge problem here too.

I'd belayed a failed attempt on this route a month prior to leading it, so knew a few tricks beforehand re the gear.
Owen W-G - Lead β - 14/Oct/05 with Max

As my Scottish mate stated, "you might as well top rope the thing" in regards to dodgey use of high side runner. Others claim it`s graded for that. I went facing the wrong way (to considered norm) from the chimney but both are possible as my mate proved after. Taxing move near top also

Lead in Oct 82 and had been rained off before that. Bit of a joke at E2 since both hard bits are well protected and it's not strenuous - can rest almost anywhere.
