Orpheus Wall** HVS 5c
[Record shot of Orpheus wall following onsight., 3 kb]14m.

Rockfax Description
Climb the thin crack just right of the arete to reach the leaning wall and a horizontal slot. Good cams here protect the bewildering moves to jugs (hint - it is all about what you do with your legs). Make a prompt exit to easy ground. Almost E1, the route is one of the most frigged in the Peak and sadly the runner placements are suffering because of this. © ROCKFAX

A great little problem with a nice bouldery start prior to the crux. On the onsight I decided on the lunge, but repeated again seconding James and found a strange lower leg mount onto the jug provided a very easy and secure static reach. Curse you mortals falling all the time and eroding the rock!

andy.smythe - Lead dnf - 01/Nov/14

One move which is just damn hard but well protected and it is all over, I can see why most HVS leaders get spanked by this.
Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 25/Oct/14 with Alkis Tsapanidis

Got back on this, finally. This time I actually got the crux without much of a problem, it turns out it's much easier facing left... :-P Unfortunately, it was raining quite a bit and the jugs at the top out were "a tad moist", even though the wall itself was dry, so I down-climbed close to the gear and dropped off.

Took too long placing gear so was already pumped out when I got to the crux. Had a rest on the rope and took a few go's to work out the crux move. Eventually made it with the help of a little crimp. Top end HVS in my opinion.

Thanks a lot to the guy with the bouldering mat and SJB for helping me down climb safely. I'll have to come back some time soon!

Fell off twice . Its easier using your right knee rather than the right heel on the break, looks shit though (I am told)!

Balancey bottom two moves, heel hook onto break (!!!!), then proceed over bulge before gliding to top - that simple (?).Due to my height, had to rethink first few moves (couldn't reach finger jam). Went up left arete to break, hand traversed right, heel hooked slot, pull and reach over bulge. Top much easier if you can still breath! Excellent

got well pumped in the break until i found the balancy rest to the right. powerful pull until you use your heel-toe jam to pull on which is really good. E1 5c *** definately E1 because it maybe well protected but is hard won with a series of hard varied style moves. hard won.
