V.nice. Actually, I found getting off the ground really hard and poorly protected! Fine after that up to the pedestal. The massive overhang is very juggy. Wedging into the crack above the roof felt like the crux? Exciting stuff!

Suprised how easy it was, and it wasn't even that scary, the holds are so big (*), although it is very steep for HVS. The hardest part is deciding to set off up the slab.

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.

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!

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.

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?

Seemore (Gareth) lead the route clean, with a few down climbing rests so to get the gear in the overhang and i 2nd him with one hanging rest stop near the lip because i got pumped from unfortunatly fiddling with sling lol, was an awesome climb though, big adrenelin rush.

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.

Snow on the ground and -5, but I was determined to do the route.As I started up someone mentioned that a Friend 2 1/2 fitted perfectly in the slot. It didn't, so I wasted time & strength. 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. Belayer too cold to follow!
