Gwion's Groove** 6b

Rockfax Description
Another reasonable route though this one has a few bold moves. It essentially links the start of Where Are My Sensible Shoes to the top of Drowning Man, via a small ramp-line. © ROCKFAX

Ella7 - Lead dnf - 01/Apr/14 with Jim Hulbert

My first 6a+. Some great sloping lay-back moves up the rising traverse, although the very last moves at the top felt the crux. Awesome.
Big Lee - Lead O/S - 29/Sep/13 with Anna Kennedy

annak - 2nd O/S - 29/Sep/13 with Lee Harrison

Good route
macgowand - Lead O/S - 01/Sep/13

This gets 6a+ in the guide and thought it hard 6a+ at that.
eugeneth - Lead O/S - 01/Jun/13 with Dan Carne

Whats going on, felt hard fell off crux got my hands wrong. Another good route on a very good wall
Dale - Lead dog - Mar/13 with dave

Made a right botch of the start, peeled, and next thing I know I'm being escorted to Bangor in a helicopter. Cock.
Calder - Lead dnf - 29/Sep/12 with Andy OB

greenclimb - 14/Jul/12 with Iain grey, Sarah

Probably 6a if you read the moves correctly. Small cam or nut useful for protecting last move as it's above a ledge.
Dan724 - Lead O/S - 14/Jun/12 with Dan Ely

Excellent route but sandbag. F6b.
jamiev - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with Chris the Tall

Bit of french free on the first bolt, bit of a rest on the second, can't even blame the wet bits. Some good moves but surely at least 6b
Chris the Tall - 2nd dog - 12/May/12 with Jamie V

Rachel Slater - Lead O/S - 15/Apr/12 with Chi Huo Cheng

Only got to second bolt.
HIGHTOWER - Lead dnf - 30/Mar/12 with Tom Hansford

Why the **** bolting! What I did was good (trickier than it looks from the ground) but with damp holds and thoughts of the rope scything I backed off before getting stood up in Drowning Man. Needs an extra bolt.
ksjs - Lead dnf - 12/Mar/12 with Rich

BenRyle - Lead O/S - 23/Feb/12

NickHarms - 2012

Caused problems for several people. Probably at least 6b. Found it harder than Drowning Man and would be more bold to lead. Not well bolted.
harold walmsley - 2nd O/S - 13/Nov/11 with Mark Hounslea, Colin Struthers

Committing to lead from the 2nd bolt to 3rd. Was wet in places. 6b maybe +.
Ian Andrews - 2nd β - 13/Nov/11 with Norman Clacher

Cailean Harker - Lead O/S - 13/Nov/11

pearson9596 - Lead O/S - 06/Nov/11 with Jeff, Jess Campbell

Unnerving... even when seconding. Slate was wet and slippery in places. Enjoyed it though
Kevin Robert Jones - 2nd O/S - 25/Aug/11 with Tomos Davies

My first lead climb! Midges everywhere, but other than that it was a good experience!
