Suicide Wall*** HVS 5b
[Suicide Wall, 2 kb]30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A stunning classic following an impressive line of cracks up the steep wall. Climb the tough crack, past the tree stump, and jam onwards to an optional stance in the Bower. Move out right and climb the wall on finger holds then a crack to a niche. Layback the crack on the left to the final overhang and finish with gusto. © ROCKFAX

This climb is in 715 logbooks, and on 127 wishlists.

Finally returned after 28 years when I ran away terrified out of the branches of the bottom oak tree. Led in one pitch to an ecstatic pull on the top flutings. Took full advantage of the 2 lie down rests as found the climbing brilliantly sustained, 4 stars.

Lead second pitch. Brilliant!
Mowglee - AltLd O/S - 16/Aug/15 with Ian

Lead p1. Tough, but a good rest at the tree and then another (poorer) rest in a niche. Crux probably getting out of niche on thin feet. Lovely belay position. Second pitch led by Gareth. Bold to start, but reasonable rests between the laybacks. Great route!

codenamel - Lead rpt - 07/Aug/15 with Jamie Nash

Luke led clean, I had a bit of an epic mare on this one. Cleaned gear until close to the tree at p1, didn't want to commit to taking a nest of gear out, bottled the potential of a hefty swing out right, ab'd down. Then realised I'd need to get up to the tree belay anyway as I didn't want Luke to lose his gear. At this point I had no choice but climb up the route directly under the belay to get there, which was a harder bloody grade anyway. Once at the tree I regained sanity and decided to climb p2. Many lessons learnt on this one. But what an outstanding route! Wow.

CharlieMack - 2nd O/S - 08/Jun/15 with Jim Burton

Led p2. Steady climbing to a fiercer jamming crack and the lovely bower belay. P2 a joy of gutsy jamming and laybacking. Surprised to find a decent nut placement in the bottom of the great flake.

Phil79 - TR dog - 01/Apr/15 with Steve H

Nails HVS, but brilliant varied jamming. Made a messy job of it as one pitch on a single rope, long slings on everything but I got scared and forgot to at the end of the first traverse. Then spent a while getting a cam stuck/umnstuck just above. Jammed the top crack cause there's no wayi could have held the layback! An excellent fight.

led p1 only then abbed off the tree when it started sleeting. Great route. Found the jams tough and took my first proper trad fall in the jams in the final crack (should have used a fist), managed the move on third attempt. I will be back to lead the route in one.
islandlynx - Lead dog - 07/Dec/14 with matthew beals

A lovely varied first pitch. Then the heavens opened and we had to ab from The Bower. Will definitely be back for more.
Matt77 - 2nd O/S - 07/Dec/14 with Shane

Led P2... Think I missed the last hard bit up the crack on P1, with the position of the belay and the fact that there was no gear above me, I traversed off left to the belay, would of been a BIG fall and swing if I had popped off and with cold hands, didn't fancy the risk. Still enjoyable moves the way I went as it's quite rounded but the last move on the crack looked harder. Will have to make sure I do it next time...

mtempest - AltLd dog - 22/May/12 with Steve Waters, Mynydd

Led P2. 23 degrees C at 7pm supplemented by nervous excitement meant the P1 jam crack was a sweaty struggle - just reached the jug at the top before my hands slipped out. P2 was superb. Managed to lie flat on my back in the niche whilst fiddling with and extending gear! It felt steep and looked even steeper as I looked down at Mike from the belay at the top. Huge respect to Mr Harding and Ms Lee.

Tried to lead this, but jamming crack on 1st pitch foiled us both (I would say this is the crux). Really pumpy climb, but plenty of places for rests. Absolutely exhausted after successful attempt!

Dan P1, Me P2. Well done to dan for getting up the first pitch. tough moves, but good gear. 2nd pitch is mega pumpy, and i found it pretty scary. Gear is good as long as you have the energy to place it. Good rests in between pumpy sections, still very glad to get to the top, and happy to have done it clean. Quality route, best enjoyed from the top belay, watching your second endure the pump :D
