Rockfax Description
A brutal fight for those who can't jam or bridge, and just a mere brawl for those that can. The central groove gives this classic bridging/jamming route. There are several good rests up the groove - the trick is to make it to them before you get too pumped. At the top of the groove, move right into the turret belay of Brant. Continue up Brant from the first belay, or, like most people, abseil off. © Rockfax

I've wanted to do this for ages! Lovely corner climbing, though definitely a lack of jugs at the top!

Really nice climbing, not the brawl I was expecting from the route description, well protected, nice bridging and jamming.

What a fight I had with this. I think bridging and jamming may not be my strong points and I still ache two days later, particularly in my calves. I fought and fought and made it to the top and then the last hold I used was wet, i struggled up past this and then watched Dave dance up easily on second. Twice my age and at least twice as good.

Only P1! Ran up to do this at the end of the day as we couldn't get parked in the morning. Glad we did - fantastic climb, loved it all the way up. Some lovely technical, sustained bridging (with good rests) on finger locks, hand jams, knee bars, back & footing and even got a chicken wing in - brilliant. Shame it didn't go on for a bit longer. Also pleased with how (relatively) easy I climbed it, especially after hearing Ange & Kev struggle their way up. Didn't find it polished. Can't wait to do it again.

I lead the HVS pitch we then Alt lead up the VS for two more pitches before a nearly 60 metre ab back down (off the yew tree). Very well protected, lots of rests and not high in the grade, if you can udge (although not one of my smoothest / fastest leads ever). Only used a couple of handjams.

I did p2 and 4. Fun climb except for p4 a bit loose and ab tree dying. Slot move quite exciting/different!

Good `warm up'. Abbed from the top of the first (HVS) pitch.
