Got to the last move to hit the shelf several times but kept bottling it, will be back with a couple of pads, would still be a big fall but more survivable over pads. Bloke on a Rope - Solo dnf - 01/Apr/14 with Vic, Matt

highball, though heading round the arÍte to top out makes you think twice about where the mates are.

No pads, cos it's clearly not E4 with them. Pretty pleased, especially after such a long last move. It's not really 6b though is it. . .
Matthew Ferrier - Solo O/S - 04/Dec/13 with Calum Wadsworth
Direct start, took a few goes to get the first move. Pads.

ground up 2nd try, should of onsighted it.
BRoe - Solo RP - 21/Jul/12 with whitehouse_rhys, Mark Roe
Ground up second attempt, fell off the traverse on my first try. I linked this with the last pitch of Valkyrie which made for an awesome lead. Pads used for Oedipus, a fall from the top crux would still have been nasty though.
MarkRoe - Lead RP - 21/Jul/12 with Rhys Whitehouse, Ben Roe
With the traverse this time. Slipped off the traverse first go, got it second. Didn't climb very well though, feet slipping all over the place.

bouldered the hard part to the ledge of valkarie at half hight and had a rope and harness thrown up to finish through the last pitch of valkarie. I did the bottom of this route as a boulder prob last time i was at the crag so it wasnt a onsight, but did do it first go.

Direct start, no mats. Reached the last hard move the day before but got scared and down climbed. Nice to get it done first thing the next day.

Ground up above a load of pads. great climb. macthed at the break then downclimbed and jumped off, too windy and cold to solo up or down valkyrie. Direct start too

Direct start. Down climbed from last move twice before going for it. Easy when you do. RP fell out when I got to the break, had a bit of a wobble not knowing you have to go to the arete.
Richard Hall - Lead O/S - 27/Oct/10 with Anais
Had done the traverse previously about 3 years ago. Seem to remember climbing part way up the route too before getting scared and climbing back down. Went smoothly today although it was an ungraceful grovel onto the stance!
Somerset swede basher - Solo RP - 29/Aug/10 with Sarah, Bernie and Lawrence
did the direct start, fell off the first move one first go though, then did it straight after. scary scary scary last move! especially not knowing whether the hold would be any good. first e4 and best climbing experience so far!

Did the direct start at the beginning of the day. Came back to do the right-hand traverse start at the end of the day and fell off the very top ledge due to fatigue, dislocating my finger and pushing the bone out through the front of my hand. Not recommended.

Simply the best route I've done. Brilliant open face climbing, and to finish up the second pitch of Valkyrie (my second favorite route) was just brilliant!
