Scoop Face*** HVS 5a
[Al Evans soloing on Castle Naze 1976, 3 kb]12m.

Rockfax Description
12m. The classic of the crag. Using glassy slopers reach a good hold (5b for the short) and attain a standing position precariously. Pad across the scoop and go up a thin crack to a pocket (big nut) and a tricky (crucial if you are pumped?) finish on the left. Barefoot ascents have long been traditional though the modern alternative of sticky rubber is a much better idea! For those who can't manage the start, the scoop can be accessed from Keep Arete at VS 4c. © ROCKFAX

Barefoot. Nice route, repeated solo at end of day (although this time with shoes on).

Becks87 - 2nd rpt - 23/Aug/15 with Adam L

Very scary and very worthwhile, found a small cam placement in the break left of the scoop but really shouldn't have placed it on single rope. Precarious cam in the mouth of the flared pocket but found a great place for a 0.5 cam a few inches to the right before a quick exit to the top. Best climb I've done in a long time

Deserves it's status. The first move is the hardest with the slippery hand hold, the others are solid and as you move up they feel more committing. Top roped it this time, aiming to lead this one day.

Should be 'Solo (dogged)'. (!) Got up to the scoop OK but was then psyched out by the surprisingly hard steep section at the top. Got the assistance of a rope to hold on to for the final section. Wishing I'd geared up to do it rather than trying to copy the others who'd soloed it (but also grateful that they were there to give me a hand when needed!).

Didn't have any gear that would fit in the crucial pocket so resorted to stacking nuts which is something I don't have to do all that often, glad I climbed it though as it is probably the most striking feature of the crag.

Low in the grade but i lovely climb. I reckon without the polish on the opening moves this would be VS. Having said that I nearly fell when my foot popped of the shinest of the holds. That'll teach me to stop concentrating! Don't bother trying to use a friend in the pocket tho - it's perfect for a sideways hex..

First HVS! Felt a bit soft though. The VS route that bypasses the start moves has gear, but it's useless once you get into the scoop. The 'bouldery' 5a moves to get into the scoop felt like a piece of piss anyway. Padding across the scoop - very nervous until I could reach the pocket and stick in #6 hex (thanks for the beta that man). Traverse across and out with heart still in mouth. Fantastic.

First HVS! After quickly bouldering the starting moves to make sure I could actually pull on the glassy slopers I commited to my first HVS lead! Left me being much bolder than I usually feel comfortable being! Some decent gear before the traverse, easy moves across the scoop if a little wobbly because getting pushed back by no handholds! Reached the end, put hand in pocket, and proceeded to try and pop in every piece of gear I could think of, ended up getting a ill fitting clog cam stuck in there, realised it had no camstops, put the same size of DMM in there (again ill fitting) and trying to block it in there by also shoving a red hex in there, probably would have held with a touch of luck! Can see the placement exploding oneday when someone takes a lob onto it! Tricky moves from here, moving up with left hand onto ledge and edging right hand into corner (nice finger hold in the crack) putting another cam in and going for the top! Felt very wobbly on the top mantle moves! Was buzzing! Dad fell as a second when moving up past the pocket and onto the ledge. Felt like I might be finally getting somewhere with this whole leading thing!

well i lead this after seconding, scoop direct, so can't claim the onsight.

All these styles of ascent get very confusing!

I found the crux to be getting stood up on the good ledge below the scoop itself after the initial hard moves. It is easy for the feet to slip on the polished holds here (Ian has seen 2 people in the last 12 months break their legs slipping on this move). A yellow Camalot in the "pond" hole was my only gear. Superb finishing moves - spectacluar, positive and well balanced. Ann spotted a wire / small friend placement near the top, but it is all over by then and better just to confidently push on through to what is a pretty positive finish. Another climb from my Wishlist ticked!

It went fine until I stuck my hand in the pond pocket...stuck a 5 hex in, went in fine, then pinged out and went sailing to the ground...remember a 6 hex...Getting to the left hand finish was a tad tricky, with me being very over balanced! Although I think I got there the hard way. Sorry, the 'good' way!
