Rockfax Description
The final Froggatt classic and very photogenic. Climb the slippery ramp then the side-wall diagonally leftwards to a fat wire. Make a barn-door move left to the huge jug on the arete, then meander up this to a spectacular finish. Easier for the tall. © Rockfax

Bloody lovely climbing. That jug was a little too welcome however and I ended up resting far too long on it, and ended up more pumped than I needed to be for the last bit. Thankfully I was only seconding it :)

I can't decide if it's harder or easier than the Valkyrie at the Roaches.

Second time leading - had to do it again. This time found it harder, but equally enjoyable! Placed more gear too, weird. Second half (from the traverse onwards) is all fantastic, shame that the start is more of a scramble and not really in keeping with the rest of the route. Still a classic, of course.

Lovely climbing after the initial ramp, which is sort of just some steps to get you to the proper start. Shame it's not a little longer, the final section is lovely climbing. Lond reach meant the move onto the arete not too tricky, though I did make a concious effort to use good style and avoid and possible barn dooring! Good gear, maybe a bit run out on finish but nothing too scary.

was worried about reach on this so wussed out of lead this time and asked dave to lead it- definately quite reach dependent, moves e easy with long reach, hard for shortarses. but doable with some delicate moves and safe - protection is good. Once established on arete you are back in a stable position and rest of moves fine for shorties.

Excellent route (though no better than, for example Lyons Corner House). To try to put the 'reach' debate into some shaper focus: I'm 5'4" and for me the moves, though stretchy and balancy, were okay. My friend Steve, who seconded me, is 6'3" and yes, he found it distinctly easier. But fun for both.

I found the crux to be really hard and committing, 5c/6a. Then I watched other 2 people climbing after us --- they just spanned and reached the good hold! It is impossible for me. Hard for short. Anyhow great quality route!

This is supposed to be soft-touch, I beg to differ! The "crux move" round the corner took a bit of figuring out without barndooring, resorting on crimping along a small ledge to get round to the arete. But it was the move after this which had be stumped. Up onto the horn, if I had an extra inch it would have been fine, but at 5"9 I had to get a high poor layback hold on the crack and make a nasty move up and drop onto the horn, almost fell was on poor holds all over the place until I got the horn at which point everything eases. If your 5"10 you can probably just hook right onto the horn from the huge jug.

Led after falling off the end of the traverse on the 1st pitch of Valkyrie. Warm and sweaty, but the gear is so good it was a joy. I decided not to tell Mike about the hidden hold around the arete - I wanted to see if he would remember if from leading 20 years ago. He didn't! Oh, well!
