The Fang*** HVS 5a
[Leaving Paula on the awkward belay ledge, traversing on P2 to move round the arete, 2 kb]2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Great climbing up and left of the huge fang. Start at the top of the gully.
1) 5a, 25m. Climb a crack to a pinnacle. Move left and climb a corner onto the arete. Move back right above the steepening and climb the corner to a ledge and belay.
2) 5a, 32m. Climb the wall on the left, then make hard moves round the arete onto the wall. Step left again then up and back right to reach the upper slab. Thin balancy climbing leads up this with small/micro-wires for protection. © ROCKFAX

I lead pitch one, which was excellent. Pete lead pitch two which was hard and scary - felt like E1 5b to us! Definitely deserving of it's three star status.

P2 only. Don't think I went round the arete right as it felt pretty tricky for 5a. Slab at top eats as many small wires as you can give it.

Led as a 3. Paul led the first pitch. Steady HVS. I led second pitch. Run out HVS. The first set of moves to and around the corner are excellent, the slab above (hint start left, then move right in stages) is excellent but run out. You will need at least 2x#1, 2x#2 nuts, as well as the usual set up to 6 + ideally a friend 0 and 1/4 or 1/2 nuts or equivalent. Enjoy. :)

spalice - AltLd O/S - 10/Aug/15 with danny griffith

Led both pitches. Good route, felt hard. Awkward belay ledge. Went too high at first on P2 rounding the arete low was better. Small nuts and brass jobs to protect slab on p2.

jackc - Lead O/S - 27/Jul/15

Another great classic. Didn't have enough quickdraws or size 1 wires, ended up improvising. After the traverse the climbing is very steady but runout.
danm - AltLd - 12/Jul/15 with Owen Samuel

Great climb. I find semi hanging belay just below ledge particularly when its dripping above makes better room for following leader to bridge into corner and place high wire before setting off for arete. Currently a stuck high wire protects move around arete. Would not have been surprised if it was E1 - reach helps a lot on both pitches.

Tried to lead P2 but we'd forgotten the guide and tried to go straight up rather than out left. Couldn't do it and Ali lost psyche so we abbed off. Went pretty badly but would be okay if I did the right route!

Lowered down into space and managed to pick them off the twig they were hanging on! Then climbed back up to finish the route!

I hate old guidebooks. Confused me with Extraction next door. Did this route a couple of years ago in a hurry. Just didn't remember much. Finally found the right way. Good little moves on 1st pitch crux bit and quite airy at the start of 2nd. But I don't really like winding route that much.
Skinny Kin - AltLd rpt - 20/Apr/13 with Pete Frost

make sure you have lots of number 1 and 2 nuts or be ready for the run out of your life. The move off the arete takes some pretty big nuts as well if you know I mean.

Where to start. Great pitches and exposure. Moving off for pitch 2 on lead is scary, had a 1/2 nut for protection to save a large fall. After many attempts had to pull round corner with aid of placed micronut, so pumped. Huge rope drag on slab after, and then the downpour began. Memorable !

MarcusP - AltLd - 06/Nov/11 with Libby

Rope drag FAFF. 'Optional' 2nd belay point in guidebook definitely not optional. Without it, there was so much rope drag that I had to be dropped a top rope on the slab due to a complete inability to move upwards and no gear. Nice route, would like to do again.
