Elegy*** E2 5c
[Mark Stevenson contemplates the first crux of Elegy (E2 5c), Roaches Lower Tier, 3 kb]16m.

Rockfax Description
16m. Perhaps the best slab route in Western Grit! Climb the awkward overhanging corner to the base of the upper crack and large cams. Balance left to the tantalising flake and if you are completely baffled, try a bit of lateral thinking. Follow the creaky flake to its end (slightly dubious runners) then weave a way up the final bald slab connecting a set of small 'blisters' by brilliantly intense climbing. Photo page 21. © ROCKFAX

took a damn long time, especially after almost having to test the gear behind the flake and Hannahs running belay skills. Great route though!

brilliant climb, felt tricky the top slab and thought the flake sounded hollow but i got away with it
anguskille - Lead O/S - 18/Jun/15 with Mike Grant

Frustrated on the bulge few times, until Mike said he was going to have another go. Quickly did it and sang my way to the top to avoid thinking about the potential fall.
FlavioL1989 - Lead O/S - 30/May/15 with Mike Gallimore

Tried leading this again but baffled by lower crux and took 4 falls. Shame because I really want to do the top section on lead. Flavio took over the lead- copied Flavio's beta and managed the move on second.

Did the crux past the bulge and my psyche just evaporated. Strange as I normally enjoy the buzz on a big run out. Too many people about I think. Reversed the crux which was tasty and finished up the offwidth. Saved the onsight for later.

Seymore Butt - 2015

Stuck the crux move over the bulge, then came off moving to the flake. Rope got cut when rolled along the edge of "A Little Peculiar" on the swing. End of the attempt. Good lead by Robert after working out how to get over the bulge.
druss - 2nd dnf - 05/Oct/14 with Roberto Fernandez

Couldn't quite make the move around the bulge, gave up after 2 tries. I will be back!
Martin Bagshaw - Lead dnf - 27/Sep/14 with Neil Passmore

Messed up the sequence on the top slab, and the move round the bulge was tricky enough!
Tom.Priestley - 2nd O/S - 21/Sep/14 with Scott Quinn

Class climbing the crux isn't as confusing as everyone makes out, although my second nearly fluffed it twice and he's the grit DIVA. Gear in the flake is pretty decent, the top didn't feel like it was 5b felt 5c still but that's probably due to bricking 'um

Great climb. Scary enough, not sure if I would have found it easier in misspent youth or not.
drysori - Lead O/S - 30/Nov/13 with Dan B

Epic. Went slightly too far left at the top and slapped up for a particularly muddy bit of the break. Came off and all 3 bits of gear in the flake ripped. The only things which stopped me hitting the ground were a high side runner and Alex running down the hill to take in slack. Broken fibula!
georgeevans88 - Lead dnf - 24/Nov/13 with Alex Winter

Grippy! Hard move round the bulge followed by tenuous smearing to the break. Very intense. Top confused me as there was no gear in the break and the climbing turned nails. Went up the easy arete but BMC guide suggested the easy crack in hindsight. Solid E2 anyway!

fluffed bizarre step around bulge onto slab (Weird move!must try again) then brilliant balancey slab

Absolute classic, can't wait to do it on the lead. The step across the bulge was exciting and committing, and the upper slab was excellent precise climbing. Most definitely a classic.

move stepping out to slab completely baffled me, tried to stretch across in mid-conversation/while getting taken the piss out of by martini about my routine moments of faggotry that occur every few months, which then contributed to making me take a whipper and land upside down!
Bill Lawrence - Lead dnf - 25/Sep/10 with tommy martin

I'd suggest getting someone to brush the top break before going for an onsight. The last move on the slab it a bit intense on lead and it doesn't help if the top-out is covered in scrittle, grass, heather, mud and other assorted detritus. Breathtaking lead though. Probably the best route I've done on grit.
Alex Winter - Lead O/S - 22/Sep/10 with T. Selvage, C. Prescott
