Nosferatu*** E6 6b
[Ed Booth on Nosferatu, 3 kb]12m.

Rockfax Description
From the fallen block that used to belong to Sorb climb the right-hand arete with cunning (toe and heel hooking) and crimpy holds to a reach for a ledge. Finish up the arete or, more directly, via an extended but safe dyno. Quite a bit easier (E5 6a?) for the really tall. © ROCKFAX

first headpoint, very psyched
harry_lewis - Lead RP - 14/May/15 with Ben Kelsey, Matt Groom, Alex McCann

Headpoint, I don't know how I did the last move statically, must have grown mid route!
Matt Groom - Lead RP - 14/May/15

Should have probably done this back in december, didn't have an excuse this time as it felt so steady today.

Nice to repeat, finished up sorb as didn't fancy the dyno whilst soloing. Plastered in chalk, not pretty!
nathanlee - Solo rpt - 19/Oct/14

soaking wet when we arrived, but dried relatively quickly. Amazing route! E5 6a

Wow! Just jumped from E3 to E6, mind you that is the first route I have ever seriously headpointed. Ended up doing a different sequence on the lead though!!

mfisher - TR - 22/Aug/14 with Tom Keaveny

Cool climbing, probably soft though. Found committing to the dyno at the top harder than committing to the start.

Jay C - TR RP - 22/Feb/14 with Sam W

A very moist day! Have been saving this for one the onsight for a good while but an impending emigration down under and a very out of shape me necessitated a couple of blasts on a top rope first. Cracking sequence. Worth the wait and don't regret the toprope given the conditions.

Patrick Hill - Lead RP - 30/Nov/13 with olly12344

Made it to the easy reach around the arete just at the top and missed the hold. Pretty exciting fall from up there before all the gear! Done next go, nice route to do ground up.

Good beta from Ben and Pete. Found the climbing steady until I got cold hands for the dyno. Such a sweet route.
Bennykr - Lead β - 30/Nov/13 with Andy tappa

Hidden - Lead RP - 23/Nov/13

With all the videos I've seen, I can't really claim a true onsight as it makes a huge difference with this route. Have been putting this one off for around 5 years, felt very easy. Great route.
dannyboy83 - Lead β - 14/Nov/13 with Jonny P

blaming the dog on cold hands.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing - Lead O/S - Sep/13 with Dan McManus

Top roped it ages ago and it felt nails. Felt so easy today... Fancied going for more e5/6's in one day but craig hit his head and was rescued by an air ambulance so they'll have to wait for another day :D (craigs fine)

With pads, quite high but feels like a very good font 6A+/6B on secure holds up to the gear. The dyno is actually quite strange, you are thankfully rewarded for your commitment

Fell off from about 4 meters first attempt. Don't know how i missed the boulder. Dyno at the top felt a bit scary without a rope!

Did the bottom section clean second go didn't do the top as top rope was too low and was knackered will go back and clean it!
kermit_uk - TR dog - 08/Jun/11 with Kurt Davy

Hidden - TR - 23/Apr/11

Couldn't make the crux move eventually frigged it and did the top half clean, including the fantsatic dynamic finish! Would eed to be a lot stronger before I even thought about getting on the lead.
lrandall - TR - 21/Apr/11 with Rich Crag Rat

Hidden - TR dog - 21/Apr/11

quite committing stepping off the block but actually quite easy when you go for it, easier for the tall I think.
jacobjacob - Lead O/S - 20/Mar/11

Nick Sillem - 2011

Flashed after watching Eddie storm it. Hands were sooo cold - spent 10mins at the break trying to warm them but to no avail, had to rely on blind faith rather than sense of touch. Highlight was swimming through the snow to walk out at the end of the day.

Dan 85 - TR - 19/Mar/09 with Oli

What a route!!! Turned up intending to try and flash it but nice guy from down south was topping it so I thought I would have a play. After all this is a step up for me so thought this might be a blessing in disguise. I then felt all the moves and thought this is on! Did it twice on toprope to make sure then lead clean after about 15mins rest. Big respect to Ryan for belaying me and breaking off from his relaxing afternoon. Definatley a very do-able E6!

Great route. A couple of guys were out toproping and they gave me a spot at the start. Bottled out of the move from the breaks to the top of the crag given that I was soloing!
