The Corner*** HVS 5b
[Mostest, below the corner, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
'Cloggy Corner' is comparable to Cenotaph Corner in quality and is only slightly easier. It is often wet but can usually still be done since the jams are all sinkers. Start below the rightmost of the three major corners.
1) 4c, 30m. Scramble up slightly awkward ground, past grassy ledges to a belay on sloping rock below the corner. This point can also be reached from Silhouette P1.
2) 5b, 35m. Climb the corner, fairly directly, with one slight detour onto the left wall at around 6m. © ROCKFAX

Wow! great line. Worthy E1?
bede.west - AltLd O/S - 11/Jun/15 with German loui

Led P1 which was far from enjoyable- 'scramble' just means ledgy and badly protected. The main pitch however is fantastic climbing.

Corner pitch is fantastic! Interesting climbing and perfect holds and gear all the way.
julesmckim - AltLd O/S - 07/Sep/14 with Mickie Streule

Fells harder because the crack was wet.
svdie - Lead O/S - 08/Aug/14

Jelly Roll was busy so opted for this. Good choice! Great route with lots of bridging and a bit of jamming. It was dry so hard HVS.

One of, if not the most sustained pitches I've climbed.
Tommy Moore - AltLd O/S - 20/Jun/14 with John Lynch

Led P2- epic and sustained, found it as good as and of equal difficulty to cenotaph corner..
john lynch - AltLd O/S - 20/Jun/14 with Tommy

Desperate! The guide gives it 5b, says `it feels like E1' so why is it not E1? A grade harder than Emulator and much more strenuous than The Strand. Fact.
Ian Jones - 2nd rpt - 14/Jun/14 with Tim Clarke

lead pitch 2. Looked way shorter from the bottom of the crag, but i spose thats cloggy!

lead P1 - more like 4c, runout and longer than it says. P2 is tough - thuggy and sustained. Really good when it's dry though..
James Oswald - AltLd O/S - 21/Jul/13 with Kiwi Dave

Classic Joe Brown crack climbing! 'Nuff said.

P1 squelchy and uninspiring. P2 awesome - just keeps on coming and doesn't let up until the very end. The walls either side of the crack looked damp from the ground, but turned out to be bone dry.
will_benfold - Lead O/S - 08/Sep/12 with Mary

P1 rubbish. P2 sustained and amazing!
mes32 - 2nd O/S - 08/Sep/12 with Will

Lead P1 which looked like a scramble from the bottom but turned out to be awkward and traditional. Seconded P2. Very strenuous crack/corner climbing.

what an epic! got half way up p2 and realised i didn't have enough gear to finish it so set up a stance before the traverse back right into the corner and mike came and led through with 2 falls above my stance and 1 wire left for his belay at the top. great day.
