Peacemaker* E1 5b
[Blessed are the peacemakers..., 2 kb]18m. The last good route in this area is a serious undertaking. Climb up the right-hand corner of the arch to a foot-ledge near the top. Step up right onto a slab for a tricky and bold finish. © ROCKFAX

Did it when it was graded HVS 5a 6 years ago. Finished straight under the overhang, reaching slightly to the right over the overhang; committed move. Good climb with interesting moves.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 26/May/13

Brilliant climb! Should have rest in the first narrow roof section before taking on the crux, couldnt reach a hold to move up over the top bulge and ended up getting pumped, had to hang on rope for a sec to then tackle it, will have to do again clean!
JUSTADUDE - 2nd dog - 25/May/13 with clipskipper

Escape from the chimney tricky. Finished direct through the roof rather than up the RH slab. Grade probably unaffected.

Went right too early - probably lowered the grade to VS

Got up near the top of the corner, couldn't see how to get any further and eventually lowered off.

Pulled off a big hold onthe arete just before moving onto the slab so retreated.

Ceridwen - 2nd dog - 17/Apr/09 with D

worked out after that I went too high into the corner before trying to move round onto the slab, found there was no gear, got pumped and a little scared, then it got dark. down climbed then ab'd in to get the gear. some loose rock near the top of the corner too. felt hard and a little bold for the grade. will hopefully go back and finish it properly at some point.
Dan_Carroll - Lead dnf - 13/Apr/09

Bottled it on the last wall section, even after getting on to it! After reading some of the comments on here, I'm not so gutted now. It was a serious route, quite commiting for a HVS, the guidebook description is very deceptive.
AndyM-LVB - Lead dnf - 05/Apr/09 with Nicolas Tardy

committing, scary as hell, and the final slab took me a while to work out, very "sequency". But a really great route nonetheless. Would probably deserve more stars but more of a warning too. This is followed by a typical loose mud and rocks finish and a belay by rattly a peg in the ground.

f**k that was hard

corker! was sweating blood.. and bleeding sweat..
recon - 2009 with Ceri

Much procrastination before rocking onto slab. Climbed too high into corner first go and had to reverse. Gear felt spaced and not reet cracky. Had Coastguard helicopter hovering behind us for five minutes. Great experience. Scary and hard for HVS.
Dave Foster - Lead O/S - Aug/08 with Carl

more like E1 5b, gear not very good either.

Marti999 - Lead - 06/Jun/07 with Rich White

First time anywhere near a HVS. Most of it was OK and I could feasibly have done myself, didn't like the last bit though. Could maybe have made the stepover on to the footledge/slab, but the tricky fingery stuff beyond that would have spit me off just after I cacked myslef.
djdf - 2nd β - 06/May/07 with Alex Borresen

First HVS, tough finish
pelvoux - Lead O/S - 28/Apr/07 with Heloise, Jonathan

I decided to try this as one of my first HVSs, partly because the guidebook said it was well protected. Fell about 16ft off on the face and smashed my knees. I think i was very lucky to just have cuts, swelling and bruises. I returned the day after to have a look and saw someone else take the same fall. I think an amendment to the next edition of the guidebook could prevent some serious injuries.

Hadley lead the corner to the roof and fell, i TR'd this and finished the route. Must lead it proper next time.

Charlie Williams - Lead O/S - Apr/05 with Gary Dicker

Scary, and another skin of teeth lead. Saw some E2-(or so he claimed) climber taking a flyer from the usual point just after my lead.

Serious fall for lead climber.
