Rockfax Description
A bold and intimidating route which is often soloed, although there is gear just below half-height. From a couple of moves up the corner trend left to a ledge (cam runners down and left), step back right, then climb the wall on small flakes until things ease. © Rockfax

One of the most intimidating lines I have ever set up. Feels a bit silly climbing a 16m route with only 2 quickdraws! Found the crux moves fine but a very long reach at the end of the difficulties had me quaking in my boots!

I can see why people solo it, but a gold dragon cam just about protects the hardest move which isn't far from the break. After that the gear won't do anything to help you! Really nice climb that is pretty serious, I wonder if anyone has ever fallen off?

My first clean E2 lead! thoroughly enjoyed this classic. Twin ropes with one in high gear in green gut about level with the ledge. Traverse out and face the arete sat on your right leg, sit there all day if you want to :) placed a couple of cams in the crack on the arete for second rope. Away you go to the top on gradually improving crimps. First move from the ledge is the crux but sound after that. Don't fluff the top unless you have a very good belay. The fall is like a baby bouncer apparently :)

First E2 lead!! Watched Jack fly up this so thought I'd give it a go. Forgetting that Jack's definition of good holds is different to mine. Spent awhile on the ledge but knew it was doable & on a good day it wouldn't be a problem. Had a small moment on the flake but had a word with myself (& Jack's "awesome" encouragement) , calmed down then carried on to the top. The move leaving the ledge felt tough for 5b but then it was our 3rd Joe Brown route of the day and I was having some head issues due to not having led for awhile. Brilliant.

Easier than I had anticipated, and the crux is protected. Make sure to do this one with half-ropes and cams in both corners for that 'cradle' effect in case you fall off the crux. after that climbing eases and the head game starts.

Did the start of Brown's Eliminate Direct then moved up onto Brown's Eliminate, it felt okay, just one really high rockover on small holds then things ease but get more run out! Would be a scary lead but I don't think I'm that far off just have to have a good head.

first E2! Absolutely stunning. Loved it. Found it very easy. Gear is pretty good. Managed to get a smallish nut and a good mid size cam in the arete break. Put a ground anchor in so that if I did fall and Paul ran, the rope would be held against the wall rather than pulling with Paul and potentially unzipping the gear. Stunning!

Definitely worth leading, you can be reasonably protected ( on a baby bouncer!) for the hardest moves which soon ease. Run out though and just about worth E2.

Got rescued off the ledge after doing the move up and down about 10 times. Do'h!

Cragrat Rich 12/Oct/06 Solo O/S

Was going really well and when I looked at the moves from the ledge it seemed too easy to be true. Crux section continues longer than appears though and it requires confidence and calmness. Gear is not redundant, as I was led to believe

Brilliant wall (slab) climbing - keep going up (rather than slinking off to the arete) until it really is all over. Trust in your feet will pay huge dividends.
