Rockfax Description
A brilliant route with a bit of everything and best enjoyed as one mega 50m pitch. Start at the base of the gully, as for Christmas Curry/Micah Eliminate. Either solo or rope-climb the first pitch of CC/ME directly up the gully/chimney to a belay directly below the right-hand side of the arete. Climb a short corner (or come in higher from the right) and move left to the arete and climb this via a steep crack to a sloping ledge. A short groove leads up to another ledge (possible belay to reduce rope drag). Struggle up the wide crack above then move right to V-notch in the arete. A precarious move over this leads to easier climbing up the arete. © Rockfax

Absolutely class route! In one pitch with the bottom crack. Felt pretty tough E1 but I don't understand how adding the bottom corner can make it E2? The bottom corner isn't E2 on it's own and there are so many rest on the route it doesn't add that much.

Great route with a variety of climbing including: an offwidth, a small roof, and bold grooves. Excellent positions. Crux was the start which I later found out to be the E2 variation. I'd recommend starting the climb via this option as it is excellent climbing.

matthomas79 28/Sep/14 Lead O/S

A fantastic route, such varied climbing, great sections on committing moves above ample gear. Started by coming in from higher on the right to then cross the crack, as stated in the climbers club guide (the thin crack read optional for the E2 version of the route) This start still presents its own problems with no gear until you reach the corner and maybe more in keeping with the grade, my second went up the corner crack and seemed to think this was a lot harder. The rest of the route is committing, the V-groove was highly delicate, as for the big crack just get your knee stuck in. Lead the whole route.

Fantastic route with such varied climbing! Led it all in one pitch and was scared all the way up and cursing Dougie for recommending this as the first route of the day! The bottom crack was a stiff start but the rest of the climb still felt hard.The groove felt bold but apparently I missed lots of good gear. Took a while to figure out how to get past the offwidth, went right in the end, and was later told that was the hard way. The step left was hard to commit to.

An unusual and rewarding route. The initial crack and getting established at the first rest was more challenging than anticipated. Then the heavens opened and the rest of the route was climbed in the wet although it started to dry towards the top. For some reason I only took 10 quickdraws 5 of which were hastily placed at the initial crux, making the following 30m quite exciting. Felt harder than Cemetery Gates or Ivy Sepulcher.

My first experience of Tremadog. Fantastic climbing at borderline HVS/E1. Hard bottom crack (warm up 1st) is followed by a variety of climbing techniques and situations. Airy, thrilling and highly recommeded
