20m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine historic HVS which features two contrasting pitches, a mid-height stance and a belay on a proper summit.
1) 5a, 10m. The tricky, slanting, jamming crack, and a short traverse, lead to a small stance on the arete (awkward belays).
2) 5a, 10m. Step right, climb the wall (gear in the vertical crack) then move left (there is bizarre no-hands rest here) then mantelshelf to the easy upper slab. Enjoy the summit experience then abseil from the ring-bolt. © Rockfax

terrible choice for a warm-up. I really need to stop doing this to myself! I led P1, Caelan led p2. I got to the top of the crack pitch and was too pumped to get onto the squished up rest before traversing to the belay. Hand went a bit blue from being jammed in so long which was a bit grim, then had to rest on gear. Gutted as it was a piece of cake after the rest! Belay feels really sketchy. P2 is a lot easier in my opinion, though with a somewhat bold move getting up the overlap. Fantastic climb, coming back to get P1 clean!

Wow - tough! Initial crack was hard - managed to combine some jams with lay backing and some face holds. Rested on ledge out left before awkwardly getting back into traverse. Spent quite some time putting the anchor together but was very good. Brought Piers up to rest ledge but he couldn't commit to traverse and lowered off. Led second pitch. After faffing with a cam at the crux had to down-climb for a rest. Not sure I did crux in the best way but it worked. Once you reach the ledge to mantle onto it is straightforward. Satisfying abseil off! Excellent, especially in retrospect.

Its worth noting that retrieving your gear from the first pitch is tricky if you want to do it from above, i.e. abseil. 2 ascents of Chapman's Crack is the easiest way, 1 to set up the abseil and get the gear from the first pitch, and another to retrieve the abseil kit. The iron mongery is closest to the top of the shortest side of the pinnacle. What a palaver, I'll just have to get on and lead it properly next time.

Planned on swinging leads with John but had a bit of a 'mare getting up to the traverse and lowered down for a rest. Tied back in and had a second go which was no better and resulted in more gear being placed at my highest point. Eventually lowered down cleaning all the below. John then led the first pith which Robby seconded to the last piece of gear which he couldn't get and was lowered off. John then pulled the ropes through and led the top pitch. I repeated for the third time the crack of the first pitch to clean the gear Robby couldn't get the. John abseiled off and cleaned the second pitch.

We had an absolute Kirsty. I lead the first pitch, but fell several time whilst trying to gain the traverse. We swapped out, and Dan, with a fresh set of legs, got to the belay. I seconded him up, but fell on the traverse out right on the second pitch, and from my position there was no option but to back off. Dan abbed off and got my gear. Good lad. We'll be coming back another day.

Lead P1, seconded after Lawrence on P2. P1 hand traverse you can get arm deep in the horizontal break and fist jam the back of it, makes it a hell of a lot easier

Des - P1 Me - P2 I found the starting crack desperate and fell out of it when a hand-jam pinged. P2 was steep but reasonable. I panicked slightly as I was climbing on Des's gear and he seemed to have the wrong sizes... I found the mantle fairly easy but Des had a bit of a meltdown and needed a tight rope. Overall we had our asses handed to us - good laugh afterwards though.

Seconded P1 clean (Nice lead by Jack). However didn't read the guidebook correctly and got lost on P2. Moved out right but then tried going direct up the face (after the thin crack) thought I nearly had it but was so pumped and couldn't stay on the rounded holds. Popped off when I tried to match my hands. Ended up just below the belay so climbed back to there then tried it again but went left this time and found the mantle-shelf. Still tricky but much easier then the way I tried first time.

Lead as one pitch. The crack is hard going for an HVS, but everything after that is much more pleasant - superb position on the top bit.

Coldish day, seconded the route after doing a 15 mile training fell-run, so in poor style. Jimbles led & took stance at ledge, I tied on midway on the rope & followed to stance, Juimbles led on & finished, I then tried to follow but rope drag from me to Phil meant I had to sit on the rope at one point & haul some rope up to allow me to do the moves... When it came time to bring Phil up, the drag was so bad I abseiled down to remove the 2 pieces of remaining gear & Phill then did it as one long pitch. A multi-pitch & almost multi-day epic !!

Initially Kev was going to lead the whole thing in one pitch, but he went too far right at the beginning of the second pitch which would have created a lot of rope drag.

Reaver2k 02/Mar/09 AltLd dog

Got my ass well and truely kicked by attempting to lead the first pitch un-suprisingly. After a few attempts and failures at the initial move, I rammed my fist into a very painful hand jam and moved all the way up on this, pretty much with my fist by my foot, then a few more wobbley moves on awkward jams. Got past the sort of hole thing, pumped. Decided bugger it i'll go for it as I had good gear, moved up and started jamming along the slightly slanting bit on awkward jams. Got to a point where I needed to switch my jams, did it quickly - could see a juggy flake just above so went for it, and missed it. First fall in a while but not a particuarly spectacular one, gear at just below waist height. Shook out for a while, then had another attempt. Got to the top of the crack, and was really pumped again, had to rest, sat on gear for a little longer, went up again, decided the traverse looked hard. Went back down again, looked for the (non-existant) footholds and swung out across the traverse. A lot easier than it looks with a couple of decent jams. Crawled into the awkward hole to belay off and brought Tom up. Belayed in a very awkward position, sort of half hanging. Then followed Tom up, complete contrast, quite balancy. Had to just the crack and toe hook undeneigh the roof in order to keep in balance whilst reaching up and left. Traverse around left on sort of flat top which feels precarious, and then a high foot and over the top. Would have been very scary to lead probably better off getting my ass truely kicked by the first pitch... Great climb, not sure how many times it will take me to get that first pitch clean...

unreal experience. 3.15 started unpacking gear, 7.15 packed last bit away. Have done nearly all VS routes on Froggatt now and hve never led a HVS, so thought no more hiding and it's well protected, lkets have a go. Well, I fell on my second piece in and proceeded on my next attack to crawl up, resting on gear and generally doggin it. At top of first crack I sat on the ledge and put in a nut, which was a bad idea as couldn't get it our and left my extractor at teh bottom. POumped to hell by now anyway. After a rest I had to downclimb a bit to do the traverse but put in a good friend. Reached belay without falling again- result and brough up my bro. Started on second bit and then got terrible crampin in hands and although got size 9 nut in I had to retreat and Dave led the rest blindingly well. I started up after him but my hands went into rigour mortis mode again and i had to be lowered. v. sad. Dave proceeded to do some very good abbing to recover gear, and then we had to go back around to the tree at the side of the first crack so he could retrieve the first nut on belay. Epic adventure, but was nice that it's so well protected that never felt in danger and although ob pumped and still ob not capable of HVS in general I really enjoyed it. No-one waiting so thankfully didn't seem to pee anyone off, so really just happy to have had a good scrap safely and go home with a story to tell. Need to get back to the gymn and strengthen my forearms I think. Might have another go one day.
