Rockfax Description
The monstrous third pitch is good value HVS. Start at the toe of the left-hand buttress.
1) 4c, 28m. Climb the slab to gain the thin crack. Follow this up to a small ledge on the right. Head straight up to the right-hand end of the large ledge that Nea starts from, and traverse rightwards below the holly tree. Then climb easily up to a ledge and belay below an open groove.
2) 5a, 28m. Follow the crack up the back of the groove. This proves a bit of a tussle until stood on a sloping ledge about 8m up. From here, make a puzzling traverse up and left around the arete to finally pull onto the slab above. Head up and right to a large flake and belay below an intimidating wide slot.
3) 5a, 10m. If you have planned ahead, then this is your mate's lead! Move up to the slot where a long sling and basketball skills will allow you to thread the chockstone from below. Prepare for battle and wade into the wide crack. Having succeeded it still requires a steady head to continue up the fist-crack to the ledge above.
4) Finish as for P3 of Nea. © Rockfax

Alan led first pitch, I led 2 and 3. The second pitch has a brilliant traverse and some mad terrain at the grade. P3 is a brutal fight and a little sketchy. I put gear in AFTER all the hard moves (big mistake!), definitely would have hit the big rock at the base of the crack if I came off. Abbed off the in-situ tat to avoid doing the last boring pitch of Nea. Brilliant route

I led P1, Charley led P2 and P3. Liked the look of the starting pitch until I got on it and then found it really steep and pumpy. P2 was fine to start with then a crazy step left on horrid holds all felt a bit tenuous. PŁ was a bit of an offwidth and all was going well until I tried to pull up and into the wide crack but got stuck because of all the gear I had on my harness before I finally succeeded!!! Awesome route but not for the faint hearted :D

Led pitches 1 and 3, got some much needed practice hand jamming on pitch 1 which would make a fantastic top end VS in it's own right. Glad I didn't lead pitch 2, felt pretty hard work. The Harding slot was something else entirely. First proper HVS lead and good practice for offwidthing/ fist jamming. Pitch 3 is safe as houses with some decent sized cams and hexes.

Led all three pitches, abbed off after P3, as we had already done Nea. P2 surprised the hell out of me, as I was expecting a 4a bimble to the crux pitch. From the hold you're supposed to go up from, I traversed further left, on poor holds and no gear, making that bit quite a bit more "interesting" than it should have been. P3 was nice, arm-barred to get my feet up then stepped into the crack, getting to the top flake from there was rather surprisingly easy.

Lead all pitches. This route is simply awesome, the crack on pitch 3 really isn't that bad at all (for HVS) and doesn't require any thrutching at 5a.

Rested on gear whilst trying to work out how to get in to the p4 (the off width) crack. Shame really as it is all okay once you've wriggled in.

cripper 16/May/12 AltLd O/S

midge lead first pitch, then i lead the second and midge lead the 3rd, but he had to sit on the rope to get into the crack. i managed it first time on second. brilliant climb, great fun. theres an in-situ ab point that is worth taking instead of finishing up nea as the best climbing is done by now.

Steve Waters, Mynydd 30/Aug/10 Lead dnf

2nd pitch is excellent - the groove is easier than appears but I struggled on the left traverse - quite sustained. I lobbed off the 3rd pitch when my foot slipped on a layback move - had 2 good wires in but the lenght of fall meant I almost hit the sloping ledge. They only injuries were grazes to Mike's knees. Had a few more goes, but after that experience I couldn't commit on the awkward deckable move required to reach the jamming crack and the associated bomber big cam placement. Traversed into Nea and finished up that. My new nemesis !!!

Done One pitch at a time. Bailed after 1st pitch (6.30am) with BIG hangover to take some Americans up Snowdon. Bailed after 2nd Pitch to retrieve gear for girl who lobbed off 2nd pitch. Finally completed with JC and BC via complete route. Took a long time to get into top crack!
