Rockfax Description
The smooth groove gives a superb, technical bridging problem.
1) 6a, 15m. Stem up the groove via a desperate series of thin moves and exit left to the Leg Slip stance.
2) 5b, 25m. Climb up and pull through onto the wall above. This leads past a small roof to a rightwards traverse and easier ground. Belay below the top chimney of Nifl-Heim.
3) 5c, 15m. As for Pretzl Logic. © Rockfax

desperate :-( pulled on peg then finished up nifl heim

Intended to do leg slip, but we didn't read the guidebook properly and did this instead. (It says leg slip takes the obvious groove left of first slip...we didn't read it to see that's the second pitch but they share the first pitch!) So I watched Brad struggle up the groove with us both thinking it was 5a. About half way up when he was making it look really hard I started to wonder if we'd made some mistake. He did it clean and when he was at the top I had a proper look at the guide to see he had done the venom groove. It's a brutal warm up on the calves, with one particularly hard move. When I joined Brad he was still thinking he'd just done the biggest sandbag 5a pitch ever till I told him! Decided we might as well finish the route off after we'd done the first pitch. We then went on to do cream and void as both of our first E4 leads. Such a good day!

Bt accident, thought it was the first pitch of Leg Slip. Thought this is hard for 5a, turned out it was 6a.

Lead p1. Hard technical climbing but very well protected, just keep on trucking! P3 is also great! Well worth doing.

Just first pitch, if the groove was a bit longer it would be a 3* classic, but still technical and 'pressy' as grooves get, awesome!

Chris led the first pitch. I did the hard move first try but injured a finger on it (tendon). There is a sustained section above the crux. Luckily the rest of the route is a breeze.
