[Right hand profile of the Sloth, 3 kb]24m. The crack that splits the enormous roof is a total gripper. The climbing is quite straightforward although mighty harassing and the route feels like E1. Climb to a sitting position on The Pedestal then step right and climb the short tricky wall to the roof (big sling on the massive spike of the Cheese Block). Lean right to get the first of the creaking juggy flakes then launch across these to the lip where solid jamming helps the pull over into the final easy crack. The old roof climbing adage of 'keep your feet on the rock at all costs' is worth bearing in mind. Photo page 67. © ROCKFAX

MSchobitz - Lead β - 30/Mar/14 with USMC

Amazing, took exactly the same gear as Anna, but couldn't make it fit so went up and down about 3 times, finally committed and found the climbing fun and easy. Which is just as well because when I pulled the ropes up the cam in the roof fell out! I knew it was the wrong size!

Camilla Mapstone - 2nd - Jul/13 with Jamie

Most nervous I have ever been before doing a climb, taken 4 years to pluck up courage. Bit damp in crack in roof, but all holds dry. Harder than expected to get on pedestal. Put sling on block and nut to keep it in. Went up to roof, lost manual dexterity but eventually managed to place cam, climb back down to slung block. Climb up and place hex next to cam, climb back down to slung block. Composed myself. Climbed back up to end of overhang, placed another cam past overhang and clipped rope, feeling very satisfied that if i cock it up now i will not break ankles hitting the wall below. Climbed on up through overhang with surprising ease on excellent hand and feet holds throughout. Don't remember any jamming through the overhang, seemed plenty of good holds instead. Fair at 5a, surprisingly.

Big cam held, then ripped! Fell as far as the ledge, then got back on and completed the route clean. Good to finish it as I am crap at roofs! Want to do it again soon!

didn't like the jam, placed the hex and downclimbed, bailed after i fell downclimbing a second time. getting the gear back was interesting
Chris Redding - Lead dnf - 12/Nov/11

Mike led to the Pedestal. I led the roof. After many years of waiting, this superb climb did not disappoint. The shake-outs at the Cheeseblock and the big flake to its right were much better than expected leaving me fresh for the crux. The holds were big and positive. The main challenge was to choose a successful sequence from the many permutations available. The option I selected involved no jamming whatsoever by moving left a little along the lip flake (after inserting the obligatory Hex) and then a long reach with the right hand up to a juggy ledge. Celebrated sitting on the mat in the late afternoon sun eating Sushi and drinking Mike's real coffee. Perfect!

Awesome route, truly gripping. Got a bit cold at the cheese block so reversed back to the block. Struggled to get the hex to seat perfectly but it was a good placement. Pumpy and awkward top. Scary!
James Oswald - Lead O/S - 26/Oct/11 with Jon Stewart

The crux of this route is definitely the psychological challenge of committing to the roof! once committed it's just fun all the way! Definitely ok to do as one pitch, barely noticed any drag but that was without placing any gear up to the pedestal. Anything before there would have to be well extended I think. Great route, well worth its reputation.

Absolutely awesome! Forgot to take a long sling, so placed a nut. I got tired in the process and so climbed down to the ledge to have a rest to recover. The strategy worked well -- well, for me at least, while Tony experienced a nightmare to retrieve the nut. Sorry!
masa-alpin - Lead O/S - 25/Oct/09 with Tony H

Quick dash to the Roaches after work - rewarded with a class climb ! Quite strenuous over the overhang (which is the move on the climb rest is easy) >90 degree bodyposition while heel hooking is not usual HVS fayre anywhere apart from grit (!) though Simon seemed to manage to do by jamming rather than hanging - grit monkey !

Into the overhang with great protection below me with a sling and a runner ... making good into the upper crack when feet cut loose - no option but to spot for a landing and let go as no amount of flailing was going to help find some footing. The slab below hyperextended my foot as I landed, and I limped off thoroughly gutted I had had to bail. A long walk to the car (ouch that really did hurt) and a visit to A&E the following day confirmed the worse! Still crutches are good for upper body strength, right?

An impressive climb that captures the imagination. Definitely not your average HVS, although it is friendly. Should be in the top 50 climbs. Relatively easy moves through the roof. The big question is whether you protect the roof, with potential to pump out placing gear, or risk a nasty fall. I didn't, and conquered.

My tape over the block slipped off as I reached the lip and then my foot slipped, so I was hanging from one hand. Shouted for a mate to get a photo then finished the route.
