Kirkus's Corner** E1 5b
[Adam Carless leading Kirkus Corner, 2 kb]14m. A good route with a stiff crux and delicate finale. Climb the edge of the slab to the right end of the overhangs and pull through these at a short vertical crack (good wires). Step left into an open groove and bridge up this to a rounded exit. More like HVS for those who donít mind exposed padding. © ROCKFAX

Nice route and good solid lead by Charley boy. Thought the hardest part of this was the pad up the corner of the slab, very delicate if you stick to the route proper. One easy pull though the roof then straightforward but bold (for leader). I though it was easier than FBD - apart from the two slab moves
Ciderslider - 2nd O/S - 05/Jul/14 with charley

The crux has good gear, the top is bold and rounded and you wouldn't want to fall off but it's all there and steady as long as you keep your head. Actually, I embarrassedly spent more time working out the move on the the slab at the start.

climberchristy - Lead O/S - 29/Mar/14 with Ben Cole

Not sure why this route has been upgraded to E1. I first did it 1982 and its exactly the same now as it was then. It's not even polished. The only thing that has changed is protection is better now and boots and sticky rubber make things easier now. Still a great little HVS problem though.

Hardcore Pat - Lead β - 30/Jul/13 with Matt Tregellas

Took me a few attempts to fathom the crux. Best way was to use the diagonal crack with my right hand, get my right foot as high as possible and reach up with my left for the higher positive hold. It's then a rockover on the right and a narrow sideways crack on the right to maintain balance with the right hand. Excellent route.

Looking for something more balancey then Flying Buttress Direct, shouldn't have picked this! The slab to start and the groove above fit the bill but the crux was thuggish. Found the move, but then had to down climb and shake out on the slab before I could get it. Very enjoyable but the path rising to the right of the crux seriously diminishes the sense of exposure.

Excellent. Had a bit of an audience which encouraged me over the crux! will definately come back to lead this one day.
climbingrev - TR O/S - 07/Jul/06

A bit of a seige, in that both Rob and I had a go before figuring out the crux. Ground up-ish, but without pulling the ropes. First route back on grit after returning from trekking and climbing in Nepal. Shock to the system!
