Leg break / Meshach / Blinkers Hybrid*** E2 5c

Rockfax Description
A great combination that takes in the delights of this wall which can be done in one long 55m pitch if you have 60m ropes. Start just to the right of Grim Wall Direct at another small crack behind a tree.
1) 5c, 35m. Move up a crack into a groove and onto a ledge. Move diagonally right to gain a small corner and step right onto the flake of Grim Wall. Make a tricky sequence of moves up the slab rightwards to gain a break. Move up and right across the slab and continue across to the Shadrach pinnacle.
2) 5c, 20m. Move back left and climb up to a wide crack in the final roof and head up this to the top. © ROCKFAX

GazzerM54 - Lead - 03/Oct/15 with Matt

Lovely varied climbing: steep start, thin fingery slab & exciting foot jamming finish (taking twin cracks direct, without flake out right). Some confusion between CC/UKC grades/names: should be 5c tech for Leg Break slab crux but misleading to include Meshach in route name, as best line simply crosses it. Not sure if it feels high E1 or low E2 - but excellent either way.

p1. good route but thought it was a bit soft compared to other tremadog routes.

Don't think I quite did the correct finish. Wall was rather wet so i finished up shadarach

Odd. Now E2 5c in the listings but shows as E1 5b in the logbook.

Great pitch well worth doing

Awesome long 50m pitch. Would be better if you just did leg break/blinkers pitch. the Meshach section make the middle section scrappy. The top blinkers section is super some great positions write at the top. Thought blinkers bit deserved 5b as hard as the start.
Dale - Lead O/S - Jul/14 with Andy

Did p2. First pitch must be 5c!

Really AMAZING route, took a while on it. The 5b slab was very interesting, thankful for the tiny wire hidden in the flake

The slab up to Meshach is quite runout and the pitch climbs all the hard climbing on p1 of Leg Break which is given 5c in the guide. Either that must be 5b or this must be 5c. Hard to say which (or is Meshach included in the name here (but not in the definitive guide) because this version uses Meshach to avoid the Leg Break slab?).

Tim Sparrow - Lead - 27/Apr/11 with Pete Robinson

Took a small eternity on this (whole series of distractions and small errors rumbling inside my head) - apologies Pete! Good value but bit dubious gear on the crux. Best not done on a busy day.

The best pitch on the wall, long and varied on immaculate rock.
