Rockfax Description
28m. A great outing through some impressive territory. Climb the flake-crack up the right-hand side of the huge flake of The Pedestal to a sitting stance (low belays) on its top. Reverse off the end of the ledge then traverse left and up to the left-hand corner of the great roof. To stop the rope jamming, try fixing a runner out left to direct it away from the crack, then pull over the bulge and finish up the deep groove. Starting up the left-hand side of the flake ups the overall grade to S 4a. © Rockfax

Me P1, Lee P2. Really enjoyed it again, but I took ages trying to get up onto the pedestal resulting in a classic bout of 'disco leg'! Eventually managed it but perhaps it's better not to attempt it from the right edge??

radddogg 07/Aug Lead O/S

Amazing route, really enjoyed some of the moves and exposure. Some spectacular rock and positions. One of my favourite ever climbs. Becoming very polished in places. Tip - traverse before you mantel into the belay ledge and the traverse after the ledge is much easier than it looks.

Struggled a bit again in this, having to down climb and restart the beginning. Not on form with leads today! I think it had some tricky stuff for a HVD. There's also a slighty tricky move getting on to the ledge to belay from, ended up doing an awkward foot up, a possible better option would be to go lower on the face and mantle up. 2nd half had a memorable exposed traverse at the start.

gpcomps 25/Jul AltLd O/S

Seconded the first pitch, getting onto the pedestal from the right seemed quite tricky for the grade. The traverse on the second pitch was the highlight. An excellent route

Epic #1: Both half-ropes got jammed, Lee had to abseil down to free them. Epic #2: On the way down after the climb Lee tried squeezing though a gap between rocks and got a cam stuck, needed a passer-by to give him a leg up to get free

SuperLee1985 15/Mar/14 Lead O/S

Be very carefull of jamming your ropes in the corner of the overhang, put some gear out left and clip both ropes throug it. (I did not do this 1st time which resulted in a mini epic involving me self-belaying a down-climb back to the corner to free the ropes, I will not make this mistake again). however asside from this a really nice route. Did the Neb finnish. Really good route, nice exposure on lead stepping off the warm comforts of the 'pedestal'. I notice a lot of people start this and the sloth from the right, i did the direct start, which felt quite tricky - harder than HVD IMHO.

with Dan Easton

bazilikiukas 31/Dec/13 2nd dnf

This one was the scariest of the whole trip. To climb it, it wasn't too bad. However, towards the very end it was very difficult to get up on the top. The ledge was very narrow. Ollie was already there belaying me from the top. I was in an uncomfortable position where I had noting to hold on to with my left foot, therefore no balance, yet I had to get on top of the ledge. Bit by bit I wiggled up, over Ollie and got into a safe position. Spent maybe half an hour on that ledge with no anchor or rope while waiting for Max to climb up and then trying to decide what to do next. Originally we were supposed to carry on climbing up and to the left, but it was quickly getting dark and cold. We were all mildly freaking out. Eventually, the guys lowered me down and then down climbed the route. They reached the ground in a complete darkness. Well done though :)

Kev led P1, I led P2. Started as per trickier central start in rockfax guide, not the easier right hand start favoured by BMC guide users. Would give it S if using this start. I had to climb up to place first gear so Kev felt safe making the move. Really nice climb, loads of bomber gear. We took the left hand side of the flake.
