[2nd pitch, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
The most famous route at Tremadog is showing signs of over-climbing, and does get very chalky since much of it never gets rained on, but the positions and line are phenomenal. Start up and right of One Step in the Clouds on a large flake.

1) 5a, 15m. Step off the flake and climb a groove, then step onto a slab on the right. Follow a corner up and left then move left again to the belay.
2) 5c, 25m. Climb up right past a small spike to a difficult crack which leads to a massive spike. Make hard moves up to the base of a groove. Another brave move right leads onto the infamous Ochre Slab. Climb the slab then move left into another groove. At its top, move left below the roof to gain the cave stance. Up to this point can often be climbed in light rain, then you can abseil off.
3) 5b, 20m. Traverse left, then pull diagonally leftwards over a roof onto another hanging slab. Continue left to the final layback corner (some people find getting into this the crux), then swarm up the crack to the belay on One Step...
4) 4b, 15m. Move up and right to just left of the flake of One Step in the Clouds and make thin moves up the wall to a memorable mantelshelf to gain a large ledge. © ROCKFAX

A fantastic route from start to finish, could feel the weight of history on my shoulders stepping onto the ochre slab! ( getting to which was harder than I though)
JamesWilliams - AltLd O/S - 30/Sep/15 with bren

Fell off P2 after doing the hard moves onto the ochre slab. Lowered down to the belay, pulled the ropes and led it cleanly second go. Scott burned himself out trying Bananas by mistake, so belayed at the foot of the layback groove and I led that. A route that keeps on giving. Very polished and chalky, and probably not a good one to try on a hot day!

Lead p2 and p3. Sustained and terrifying at times, but with awesome moves and positions!! Thought the move into the layback on p3 was harder than the actual crux; possibly height dependant... Ochre slab also took some committing to!! Definitely an epic and memorable outing - a Tremadog must-do!!

Led pitches 1,2,3, Rob led P4. Opted to link the first two pitches to save time, but ran out of gear On P2 and made an outrageous hanging belay off the spike under the ochre slab. I found p3 most difficult, but once I found the correct line things got became straightforward. Finished my pitch with a dyno hand jam, not obligatory. Overall the climb was well protected. No specific crux to speak of. Exposed. Super route, really happy to have climbed this. Thanks Rob for great company and for sticking with it!
MichaelGallimore - AltLd O/S - 04/May/14 with Rob

Lead P1 and overran to a hanging belay on the spike below the crux of P2. Lead P3.

ashtond6 - Lead O/S - 16/Nov/13

P1 - caught jonny's unexpected fall from the top of P2, quite surprised to see him come cartwheeling back down the slab as he had reached the belay. Not as surprised as he was but fortunately completely safe fall maybe 5m!
alp79 - 2nd O/S - 16/Nov/13 with Jonny Ashton

I did pitches 1 and 3, Dan did 2 and 4. 1 was slightly harder than anticipated at 5A, crux pitch was awesome and amazing to second, quite bold on lead. 3rd pitch was interesting, especially getting into the vertical groove after the traverse.

Bristoldave - AltLd O/S - 11/Aug/13 with LukeW

PMPP fell on the ochre slab which was annoying but got back on and finished it. Lots of chalk on the route adding to the polished feel of it sadly
Marq - AltLd dog - 28/Jul/13 with Paul Scott

A repeat (first did it in August 2008) but was happy to do it again and it didn't disappoint! Nick led the first two pitches in one and I finished the last two pitches in one, accidentally taking a variation line on the traverse by going under the hanging slabs - probably somewhat harder, there's a very nice cross through move there. The first two pitches were very enjoyable to second and felt easy apart from the last few moves on the Ochre Slab. The crack on P3 was harder than I remembered though!
Misha - AltLd O/S - 28/Jul/13 with Nick

Owen had done before so i got P2, made it to bulge at top of slab, must have relaxed a bit too much as the next thing I knew I was hanging in space level with the spike... Foot had just shot off a hold I could see my face in. Bit jibbery so went back to stance and swapped over. Owen shot off same foothold then finished. Then led P3 which turned out to be equally desperate - feels quite lonely as totally out of sight for the crux.

Heather Osborne - AltLd dog - Jul/13 with Ben Roe

I led P1 and P3. Robin led P2 and P4. Fantastic climb that lived up to the hype. Not really that polished. I traversed too far on P3 and had to deal with bad rope drag.

chriscarroll - Lead O/S - 15/Oct/11 with Owain

Minor slip after crux moves of the second pitch. Did the last two pitches in complete darkness with one head torch between us. Very exciting.
pmurdy - 2nd O/S - 15/Oct/11 with Ben K

got very phyched out by pitch two, climbed in poor style, very shaky. took a fair while. Got to the second stance to watch the sun set. left on pitch 3 in the dark having given my torch to Paul and got to the stance of One Step in almost total darkness. great route and memorable for it being a total epic! "paul don't fall off, the gears probably shit"

Sweet climb but mega polished, led p2, it's more vertical than the pictures would have you believe! The crux was keeping my head together! I learnt a lot from this route, a great experience :-)

M_W_Court - AltLd O/S - 29/Jul/11 with ian sutcliffe

argh. climbed the 1st picth into the cave, lovely climbing, no definate crux but steady and fun. led out of the cave but went past the proper route crack and ended up just round the corner from One step... then it pissed it down. stuck in the corner with everywhere wet. abbed off. chris abbed to get route gear. i soloed up one step.... to get the abseil anchor. will be back.
al123 - Lead dnf - 15/Jul/11

Wow. Intimidating (its vector), amazing airy positions and super cool climbing but never felt too hard, toughest bit was the head game. Found the crux to be the top moves on P3. Ace route!!! P2 + 3.

masa-alpin - AltLd dog - 20/Nov/10 with Pete D

Really nice route, pitch2 and 3 make it.. the whole thing is awesome though! Also learnt the correct way to do the shared Diadic pitch of the route.. my way was much harder and basically wrong! Will have to come back and do this again so I can lead the Ochre Slab!

I realise the cost of the gear is probably 10x greater, but i might be 10x poorer than you, so it evens out. Look, any cake of your choice, well anything from erics. I reccomend the carrot cake.

As I was literally making my way across the Ochre Slab, Chris tentatively shouted up for me to hold on a minute and not to fall off. I glanced down to see a clean sweep of the rope dangling a couple of feet away from his hanging belay. He just managed to get his fingertip to it and pulled it back in to resume belaying. Kids! A good route but not as hard as it's reputation suggests.

Massive lead for me. I trained for this and everything. I led the Ochre Slab, which was wierd and definitely where the route gets its name from. Then Mike failed on the next pitch, which was unusual, cause he climbed E3 at the time. I cruised that pitch and had a well earned fag on the top! Happy days.

Climbed 3 times over the years. 2nd pitch is utterly brilliant. A memorable ascent with Frank Richards who led the top pitch in bare feet (his new rock shoes were hurting) and there was snow on the ground! We also had a wee adventure with the car leaving the road, before we arrived at the crag. And Frank was a nervous passenger before that...

Al did crux taking, some time to place gear and work it out. I did the layback pitch. Al fell off seconding, tired after his efforts on the crux.The first big lead for both of us. Lead all pitches later in 1979 and May 82. Done several times since.
