Rockfax Description
Exhilarating climbing on large holds. The grade is quite close to the HVS/E1 boundary so the arguments will go on. Climb the slab, build a safety net then head across the centre of the roof, first right then back left, with heel-hooks and some brute force. © Rockfax

7 1/2 years since my first trip to Stanage and I finally ticked it. Struggled initially to make the reach from the back of the roof (4 or 5 attempts), but once up it flowed well. Seen too many videos/photos/people climbing it to claim the onsight but to be honest the climbing is pretty obvious when you're up there, and not even that hard if you pull hard and move quickly. Bloody intimidating though.

Dried out after on and off showers and decided to lead it as a treat to myself. It's a funny route, feels serious and committing but the moves are easy. Superb climbing. I would say easy E1 as it feels committing and crucially I have seen some reasonably experienced people come off and slam into the slab, even with cams in the break.

Basically ground up, but after cunningly pre-clipping cam on the rope managed to trap it under the rope when I needed it and dropped back onto the slab to sort it out. Trick is to preclip the two cams (red and green dragons) onto the rope. Green went in teeth and red clipped to gear loop via a crab round both bits of sling and twisted to keep cam from getting too close to rope. Traversed left once in second break and was able to get hands to next break - holds still good. Large silver can could be useful to protect once standing.

Hands up to next break (just a little slopy) then heel hook again into the same break. Traverse back left till you can get hands up again then stand and finish. Don't hang about!

Ben Snook ?/Dec/14 Lead G/U

Climbed in sleet and howling wind, with a middling hangover. Lovely lob (due to frozen hands) from the headwall, plopping down nicely on to the slab. Managed it second time. Swung attempts with Jack, pulling the rope each time but not stripping gear due to awful conditions and not insignificant headaches. I guess it scrapes E1 for a bit of boldness above gear which gets progressively further away, but the tech grade was never 5b in my mind. If you are strong and brave, it'll be fine. If you are timid, you'll really struggle; don't hang about!!

Excellent climb...well the bit that I did was. The slab is straightforward though very polished. The move to the first break is not straightforward for shorties unless you have strong fingers and can dyno. I haven't but managed to work out the move. First time I didn't latch it right and slipped off. A bit more finesse second time gained me the break, got the heelhook on but couldn't pull up so hooked the second foot up as well and tried to tuck my toe in so I could really pull with my leg but my foot slipped out and I couldn't hang on. Decided to leave it and let Kev have a go before trying again. Had nothing left in me on the next attempt so will have to save it for another day :-) I won't vote on it until I've completed the climb.

charley 03/Jun/14 Lead RP

I've been putting this off for years and finally made the decision to get on it this trip. Probably should of tried it on the 1st and not 3rd day as arms were knackered even on the slab & had no reserves but today was the day, wasn't going to back out again, had to get on it. Had to wait for the rain to stop & the rock to dry but I was good to go. Took some swings as had nothing left to do the final pull up but got it clean, ground-up after a long rest.

I went for the obvious heel hook with the right foot followed by rocking onto it and getting a slightly painful kneebar in, then groping around on slopers above before eventually reaching better holds and standing up. Eszter said she had never done or seen anyone doing it that way. Think you're meant to do a leftwards shuffle with lots of heel hook action, must try that next time. The way I did it was perhaps more graceful but closer to E2 than the HVS some claim! I'll settle for E1 ;-)

I can see myself getting addicted to this route. E1 I reckon for those without beta, whereas I knew which sized cams fitted the break, and had seen the sequence on a youtube video, therefore HVS for me. Seemed much easier to gain the heel hook before placing the cams. Fantastic climbing, really lived up to its expectation.

Finally! My long sought after first E1, on the first trad outing of the year! :) It's an E1 in my book, even if others better qualified than me claim it's soft for the grade. A very aesthetically intimidating climb with a big fear factor, along with 'that cam' being a blind placement, without any real option to back off once you've committed. The climbing itself - if you love heel hooks - is not too challenging.

Everything went to plan to begin with - I placed 2 good cams in the break. However, I lost my feet coming back down to the rest and after a few attempts to get my feet back onto the rock I was marooned and had to drop onto the rope. Shame. Next time I will place just 1 cam on the way through and then will check/adjust it whislt heel hooking and hanging from the top of the roof which turned out to be a decent hold. The rest of the route went fine. 5*

Second time lucky. First one in our group to try this initially and like everyone else fell off on the first attempt, the difficulty is placing the gear and working out where you need to go very fast because hanging around for any length of time at all gets you hideously pumped. First fall on grit and a rather spectacular one, got up to the second of the two breaks stuffed a cam in the essential slot which prevents you from smashing into the slab below then traversed along the break as you are supposed to looking for more holds, went too far and got too pumped to verse and correct my error and dropped off, luckily the cam held and I just plopped onto it. Just goes to show how incredibly good cams are as a medium of protection on gritstone.

Done on Kyle's gear after he backed off. Went up, clipped his gear and then reversed back down. Throw a high heel on then stretch for the next break. Work your heels across to get them on the top break then stretch for the next on. Hard work but brilliant. Left me breathless, very cold hands as I mantled it out.

Had four attempts and couldn't get established over the lip after the cam. Turned out when I pissed up it on second that I'd done the hard bit every time and it was all in my head! Wonderful piece of climbing though.

The first move of the crux is pretty reachy for the shorties - hard 5b for me with the feet inevitably cut loose after the move. Definite 3-stars anyway! After Jo giving up, a passer-by attempted to second yet failed to climb, hence I myself top-roped to clean, belayed by Jo. Later Matt top-roped cleanly - top effort!

Went to far right going over the lip, mantelled and reached to find no holds. Then shifted across, but this time too far left to where the next hold was. Had placed one cam in the break below me, came off and this cam popped which inverted me and I then hit the slab. The gear at the end of the slab held and brought me to a stop, no damage done! Definitely will be doing this next time I'm in Stanage, didn't know the proper route of the route and didn't know about the infamous leg lock rest!

Spent a long time trying to get the move off the slab as I'm a shorty. Once I got it I already had a pump on; couldn't see the next move once I turned the lip but manage to place a cam in the lip before the pump got me and I came off safe. Yo-yo'd again before I nailed it and cursed my lack of commitment the first time. Place the cam on the lip before you commit to turning it! Them push on with absolute commitment!

WARNING : I had an avoidable, potentially serious near miss when I was leading first. I found myself hanging on the lip of the roof when all my gear fell out below, running out of power quickly. I had to reverse what is probably the most taxing move on this to get back to the top of the slab. This happened because I had not paid enough attention to what should be safe placements below the roof. The nut slots are quite polished due to frequent ascents. My nuts both pivoted out when i moved up as they were not extended enough and my belayer stood at an unfavourable angle. Pay attention to this if you're going to lead it.

Got this clean, annoying as I wanted to lead it onsight but oh well you win some you lose some. The move out to the roof is absolutely enormous! Once you've got that it didn't feel that bad, would just have to whip the gear into the break quickly and it would be fine. Will lead it sometime hopefully!

Stubbornly tried to place a cam that was 2 big in the lip pumped and fell. Got straight back on with the correct size and did it fine with an ace lie down rest after pulling up. Ground up not clean. Awesome route for HVS. Please stop with the cam beta!!!!!!

Put a sling on the block and pulled over the overhang and instantly got pumped beyond belief. Blind panic alone got me up the route as I could't feel a thing and my brain had shut down. I was unable to stop to put runners in (pre-Cams)but fortunately managed to grovel my way to the top as a fall would have made a significant mess.
