Did this a few years ago as a second - really pleased to have finally led it - think it's a quite serious lead because although it's not that technical the traverse gets a little bold and on lead you're gonna swing into the corner and maybe get smashed, whereas on second you're gonna swing into space. Not much gear on traverse and peg is now almost shagged.

Got up the corner but lost all nerve when standing at the start of the traverse which had a distinct lack of protection. Spent a lot of time shouting to be lowered and eventually another climbing was able to relay the message to John.
John abbed for gear and a couple of minutes after touching down we saw a guy (Roger) take a ground fall on Elysium. Called for rescue and got a lift boat team to help him and a helicopter to winch him out. Found out afterwards that it was bruised ribs and nothing more.

We abseiled into the Ruckle intending to warm up on Finale Groove and then head to Behemoth. However, despite low tide, the sea was too high for us to reach FG and I got a soaking checking out the access.
Instead I lead out on Lightening Wall. A bouldery start lead onto good quality climbing on sandy rock that felt a little insecure. I found the move out of the groove awkward and committing, but well protected.
The traverse rightwards over the big roof had little protection, but good gear at the end. Another crux move left out of a groove also felt awkward and committing, but reasonably well protected.
Very high quality throughout and a fabulous overhanging position, with the sea crashing in. My two partners got dowsed by a particularly big wave, and Chris had a battle to escape up the route, pumping out pretty early on and prussiking up the rope to overcome the crux.
I think it took more than two hours for us to complete it. This was Chris's second day of sea cliff climbing so he definitely got thrown in the deep end with a proper Ruckle experience.

Climbed at 9am without warming up/stretching, got slightly confused by the sequence of moves at the crux just before the traverse, got pumped and rested on the gear. Pondered over the moves whilst relaxing in my harness and then managed to climb it with relative ease. Traverse was brilliant, though no gear through the middle of it. Rock-over onto the arete was very fun indeed. My first HVS ever!

Backed off. Had traversed under overhang, then went up a bit, but wasn't in the mood to commit to next moves up & then along the rightward traverse to niche. Too tired, too late & too rubbish at climbing today! Next time...

Climbing of high diversity and quality. Lots of good holds but like most climbs here it's the steepness that gets the grade. Crux is the first few moves after the fault line. The traverse is the easiest bit. Split this into two pitches to reduce rope drag but the belay point was pretty uncomfortable. Would recommend doing it in one pitch with two skinny ropes and long extenders. Defo HVS 5a!

First route at The Ruckle. Very impressed with the crag.
Adam couldn't follow the crux and with much faff, I had to lower him off, ab down for most of my gear and then climb a VS with him to escape. Took most of the afternoon, but a great route!
It is definitely worth 5a as given in the new WCC rockfax.
Si dH - Lead O/S - 28/Jul/10 with Adam, Mike Henesy
Simons lead, he seemed took a bit of time over the crux which was fair enough as it seemed def hard 5a. Maybe it was because I was getting pulled hard right on to the traverse when I was trying to go up, or maybe I'm just crap. Had to rearrange some gear so that I didn't take a big swing if I came off. Got shagged doing it and had to clip into a quick draw for a rest. Move ok once I recovered and negociated some slack! Adam couldn'd do the move - and then the fun started!

Very exposed laybacking around the corner onto the traverse - very nice!

I tried to lead it but bottled the move out right from the break which involves smaring and a sort of lay back on a big flake. I tried to go up higher but couldn't hold on to the damp rock and rested on a nice big tech friend no. 4

Lovely route with a tingly traverse across the wall itself. Best not to climb it with a single rope, though!

Minor epic! I decided to lead it as a single pitch, just enough rope. Had to down-climb to recover some gear though. Andy C had difficulty with the traverse. We scared off the next pair who were considering it!
