Spectre*** HVS 5a
[Spectre, pitch 5, 3 kb]

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

Led p2 and p3. P3 is a bit of a beast.

redshapedfriday - AltLd O/S - 27/Sep/15

Led p1 and attempted p3 but was glad I backed off when I dogged my way up on second. Hideous to section - short and definitely not sweet! Sharp contrast to the lovely technical difficulties of p2.
Happy Wanderer - AltLd dog - 27/Sep/15 with Mike D

Lead P1 &3. Sapped all my strength trying to brute my way into the crack on P3, with none left I was forced to employ a little technique and commitment. Not so hard when finesse applied.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 16/Aug/15

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

Stickle Tarn - Lead dog - 11/Jul/15

Dave pitch one, Me the first 8 meters of p2 which I then had to down climb due to rain. I did this by placing a piece of gear lower than my top piece and then removing top piece and repeat until down.

Awesome route, found pitch 2 (pitch 2 and 3 in some guides) the hardest and a little scary. The crack pitch was fine and less scary than the guide implied. Theres a very loose hold as you join the Vs which is quite big and worth being careful of.

Unplanned but led all the pitches after the 4a pitch in the guide being deemed 5a by the team abbing down. So enjoyable in the sun. Tough crux pitch up the crack but a great way to end, good fun and safe. End of weekend trip, must return soon for more classics!

cpt_crunch - AltLd dog - 28/Jun/14 with matt lally

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
valentinesbabe - AltLd O/S - 26/Jun/14 with Charley Fell, Kevin Tithe

Tithe Technique - 2nd O/S - 26/Jun/14 with Angela Paul, Charley Fell

Brilliant route. Led pitches 2 & 3. Found the crux pitch to be pitch 2, was really good & great fun although committing. Pitch 3 was easier then it looked, didn't think I'd have any gear big enough to protect it so was surprised when I found a 0.5 friend protected the crux move.
charley - AltLd O/S - 26/Jun/14 with Ange, Kev

Hidden - AltLd β - 25/Jun/14

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.

Double Knee Bar - AltLd O/S - 27/Sep/13 with Blanchie

Great day at the office - Sandbagged partner on 3rd pitch, hid his keys for daring to forget his nutkey and then told him I'd 'run over' the pork pies for getting the ropes stuck :-) Beefy route that requires commitment, proper old school!

tim20 - AltLd - 24/Sep/13

tim20 - 2nd - 24/Sep/13

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.

Paul would've blasted up the 5a pitches no prob. Gareth and Tim P flowed up the route ahead of us .

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. Very well protected with a huge variety of top quality climbing. Don't bother with the finishing pitchs of Nea they don't add anything (but length and an awkward scramble back down) to the route.
CurlyStevo - Lead - Jul/13 with Rob

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.
Alex.M-M. - AltLd dog - 16/May/12

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.

Led P1 and P4 (The Crack). P2 was probably the best single pitch of this 4-day, 11-route visit to The Pass! Fantastic climbing! FA by Peter Harding in 1947 then soloed by him in 1948! Hero.

mtempest - AltLd dnf - 30/Aug/10 with Steve Waters, Mynydd

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 !!!
