<< Nanoq Slab
 
Valkyrie Direct >>
[Froggatt Valkyrie, 2 kb]20m, 2 pitches. A great and historic HVS which features two contrasting pitches, a mid-height stance and a proper summit. 1) 5a, 10m. The awkward, slanting, jamming crack, and a short traverse, lead to a stance on the arete (awkward belays). 2) 5a, 10m. Step right, climb the wall to a vertical crack then move left and mantelshelf onto the easy upper slab. Enjoy the summit then abseil from the ring. © ROCKFAX

Ben just about managed to get all the gear out before collapsing in a heap. First pitch harder than it looks, will definitely come back with a fresher/better partner to finish it off. It was the end of a longish day mind. Abbing off the chockstone not recommended.

Jesus, Joe Brown was good: that first pitch is brutal! Led both pitches and loved it. Pitch one is definitely the crux. What a route, has it all... well, apart from a chimney... it could do with a chimney!

Mini epic. I stupidly volunteered to do first pitch. Fell off from top of the crack. After rest managed to get myself lying down under the chockstone. Mind addled by pump couldn't get up on ledge. Set up awkward hanging belay to have massive doh moment when I saw how massive ledge was. John managed to get up and past me but couldn't force his way to the top so ignominious abseil from the tat.

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.

spidermonkey09 - AltLd dog - 18/Jun/13 with Jack Knight

I lead the first pitch and Jim did the second
Jack93 - AltLd O/S - 18/Jun/13 with Jim Hulbert

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.

Tidy route, I ended up leading pitch one after Luke gave it a bloody good go. He managed to get two bits of gear in before falling off, so pretty sure that made it easier for me.
jayrenegade - Lead O/S - 11/Nov/12 with Luke

made hard work of p1. got a couple of nuts in before slumping onto the rope... 3 or 4 times! ultimately Jamie got p1 done and i led p2 in a apprehensive but clean fashion.

P1+2. An epic route, one of the best! P1 is strenuous and an absolute brute. P2 is softer but still has great climbing.

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.

georgeevans88 - AltLd dog - 21/Apr/12 with Alex Pattison

2nd pitch. Nearly pumped out trying to clean a wire seconding the first pitch. Not the cleanest jamming i've ever done. Went a little off line i think on the second pitch and went direct from the crack/trended right. Felt hard.
Kemics - AltLd O/S - 16/Apr/12 with Dave 88

The ability to rapidly re-grow skin on lead, would be beneficial. Awesome climb, I lead 1st clean, then was still boxed and fell off second. Lowered back to the belay to get it clean.

Thankfully I drew the lead on P2. P1 was very thuggish and sustained and not a lead i'd like to have taken on, top of the grade at HVS. P2 was a big contrast, nice holds and low in the grade.

lewiz - Lead dog - 07/Aug/11 with Kirsten Donovan

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. Rope drag was a problem - if you want to do it as one pitch, strongly suggest use long slings to extend the gear at the ledge at the top of the initial crack. Ecellent route.

One to return to after I gain more hours losing skin on easier cracks, as I would love to do this clean! Spanked!

Goodstuff - AltLd - 27/Apr/11 with Ali McKay

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 !!

flashpanther - Lead rpt - 23/Apr/11

Absolutely horrific route. Polished to high hell and barned doored all the way up the first crack. Told by previous climbers to go over the top of the boulder above the crack - didn't fancy it so backed off to the left (tricky enough to do!). Found out afterward that it was the wrong line. D'oh. The first crack was crap though anyway, so I don't know if I want to go back...

Hardonicus - AltLd dog - 16/Aug/10 with nick a

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.

1st pitch is pleasant, non strenous and only felt like VS. The winter spent practising my hand jamming indoors paid off!. 2nd pitch is balancy but stunning position. One of the best climbs I have done on grit. Rob did the first pitch and I the second. Though last year I led the first pitch and had to abb off the belay when my second couldnt get up the crack!

thomasadixon - AltLd O/S - 02/Mar/09 with Alan

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...

Jack00 - Lead O/S - 20/Aug/08 with Olly

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.
