Rockfax Description
18m. The classical wide fissure is climbed by the left-hand corner with a step left onto The Pulpit if a rest is needed. Gain the right-hand crack a little higher. The right-hand crack can be followed throughout at HS but the gangly can bridge the whole affair. Well-protected throughout. © Rockfax

Absolutely brilliant. Definitely no slouch at the grade. Worth 4 stars. One of the best routes I've done.

Nice climb, had it in the guide as HVD, definitely deserves the Severe!

with Maxie, Minty
bazilikiukas 02/Jan/14 2nd dog

We did this one as our second multi pitch climb. I seconded it the first time and Maxie seconded afterwards. I think, this one was the second scariest climb during this trip. It was also a bit difficult. Doable though. The second part was literally using the crack on the right hand side as steps with a bit of hand jamming. But my main moves were twisting feet, jamming them in the crack and pushing up. I consider myself too short or too week to bridge on this route. The guide book said bridging it would bring a tear to one's eye.

alexpeeeee 02/Jan/14 2nd dog

Took one fall on the first pitch. Foot hold didn't stick. A clean run would be perfectly achievable with a bit less damp green and bird crap.

I'm sooo not a grit-stone climber! Made hard work of this climb. HVD (in Peaks guidebook) really shouldn't feel this hard!? Relies mainly on smearing up the slab. Had little confidence on foot placements and so laboured long on placing regular gear (cams size 2-4 required). Followed the left crack all the way to top. Excellent second by Reon! : )

One of the best routes I've ever done. Certainly sustained (possibly HS), this is well worth adding to anyone's To Do list.
