L'Horla*** E1 5b
[Tim battling for the crucial hold, seconding L'Horla (E1 5b) at Curbar, 3 kb]10m.

Rockfax Description
Classic grit E1. The leaning groove is awkward and insecure. At the bulge (high wire and/or big cam in the notch) leap onto the left arete and crank like a man possessed to finish or flounder with a flourish. Alternatively, ignore the photogenic jug dangle, and pull straight up into the groove. © ROCKFAX

Great fun, massive holds! I was a bit worried when I first made the reach out, but it does go ok above that.

dominic lee - Lead rpt - 03/Oct/15 with Pete O'Donnovan

Got it on the second try after Gareth got up it clean. From the good bit on the left of the jug, cam right foot into the notch and go for poorer low part of the edge with right hand first, then jump it up to the good bit. At that point it is over.
Ian Hylands - 2nd dog - 27/Sep/15 with Gareth uglow

After getting up it on second, tried on lead. Got all the gear in and got to crux, but ran out of juice. Need to go back fitter, lighter and with more finger endurance (esp. left). Might also help to nip down for a 'rest' after placing the top cam. Get feet quite high before reaching for the jug.
Ian Hylands - Lead dnf - 27/Sep/15 with Gareth uglow

Nice to get this, about 3 years after falling off. Brilliant moves!

Ran out of beef on "the move". Corner was harder and more technical than I was anticipating.

John Higgs - 2nd - 08/Sep/15 with Tim Larrad

Antonio tried but fell off crux. I tried clipping his gear. Then another go each. Reachy move from lower jug to upper one. To reach lower jug best to use finger lock high in the crack with right hand so you can get jug with control. Maybe then move feet up too? Lower part is actually mainly face climbing - the groove isn't very useful. Blue cam in the notch was bomber. A spare blue cam is useful lower down. Also used small silver cam, a nut and a green cam on the right, and a small nut in the groove on left just before going to place blue cam.

Andrew171 - 2nd dog - 02/Sep/15

Wasn't the best suggestion for a warm up. And got quite pumped as I had four cams thrown up to put in the notch. Fun route though. Strong at the top.

Much harder than I expected, crux move for me was at the bottom going up from the good flat hold on the right. The groove felt hard and I had to throw the cam in the undercut away because I couldn't get the undercut any other way. Not climbing well.

What a route, some real nice moves. Didn't like the start but enjoyed the rest. Felt quite off-balanced for most of it. Popped off on the swing before the jug. At the time it felt that rope was too tight and pulled me off but saying that, there was no way I could of got the last two bits of gear out without resting on the rope - knackering!!! Not sure I would want to try this on lead just yet...

Slipped off half way up the initial section so lowered down and started again. On sectond attempt got up to crux clean and stopped for the obligatory photo hanging from the jug but then to pumped to get the hold in the groove. Awesome climb...would like to repeat and try to get it clean. Found it quite hard for an E1 but it's not my style of climb.
valentinesbabe - TR dog - 03/May/12 with Jack Drake, Charley Fell

Not a chance! The crux of this climb punishes the heavier climber, a good strength to weight ratio is a major help.

Took time placing a couple of wires lower down and got a bit tired. Placed the cam in the big slot, downclimbed a couple of moves and rested for 2 before going for it. Got the jug ok but first effort for top saw me cut loose with right toe slippin off where I was tryin to rock over. Ebbing strength so thought sack it and laid one on. Got the top (just) and laughed lots. What an awesome route!!!!
coombsy - Lead O/S - 27/Mar/11 with John B

The crux was 2ft above what I'd believed to be the one - 1st mistake. I didn't bother checking the in-situ gear, which was the last gear - 2nd mistake. Panicked - 3rd mistake. Misestimated the size of the pro in an attempt of placing the gear at the most strenuous position - 4th mistake. My foot slipped - 5th mistake. The consequence was a bad abrasion and fair bit of bleeding from a finger as a result of a fall. Gutted for the failure...

Got too pumped trying to place gear in the groove off the jug. Did not a the right size hex or cam to fit into the notch.
Chi Cheng - Lead dog - 17/Sep/10 with Liam Brown

petellis - Lead O/S - 12/Sep/10 with Cleric James Koran

Less steep than expected. Perfect overhead gear and good, never-too-hard moves, would really reward a positive/bold approach especially around the bulge but it's just too tempting to keep plugging the gear in!
