Climbers' Club Direct*** HVS 5a
[Climbers club direct, 3 kb]2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Magnificent, and one for the jamming master. A forceful couple of pitches that have taken a few scalps (and skinned a few knuckles) over the years. One of the best HVSs in the area. Start beneath the hand-crack that cuts through the low overhang at the base of the face.
1) 5a, 23m. Climb the crack strenuously and continue past a sapling to a short, overhanging corner. Climb to an overhang and exit leftwards to a good stance above.
2) 4c, 27m. Ascend the wide crack in the V-groove to the overhang at its top. Pull out right and climb the widening crack above direct to a wild finish. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A superb route. It accepts the obvious challenge, climbing the cracks that split the main face. A hard first pitch, and an exposed last one. Often failed on by leaders trying to push their grade. Technique counts here, though thugs have had the odd success! Start below a small overhang, split by a crack.
1) 5a. Climb up to the roof, hard moves surmount this. Continue up the crack,
past a tree, to a niche. Move up from this, into a vee groove capped by a roof,
pass this to belay on a ledge, beneath a chimney. (Chockstones on the left.)
2) 4c+. Climb the chimney (Peg), and move up out of this into wide cracks. Climb up these to a slightly bulging wall (possible belay). Enter the crack, that goes up the wall, by a hard move, and struggle up this. Remember to admire the position.

supersouthward - 28/May/15 with alex snook cox

I lead pitch one and Jack did the burly pitch 2. We finally manged to get the complete route done last. Had tried on several other occassions but weather, other climbers on the route, etc has foiled are attempts in the past. Managed to get through the first big crack using a combination of fist jams and crimps with a ridiculously high right foot to avoid the polish. The lay back just before the first belay is an absolute pleasure to climb. 2nd pitch just keeps coming at you with a rest bite in the middle. Good effort Jack!

Thugged up start, after getting it wrong first go. Pulled rope & started again. Not climbing at my most relaxed as kicked gear out of bottom of crack both times! Fortunately had also placed big Friend higher - rather hurriedly. Note to self: must repeat with better gear & style. Led P1.

very good, didn't find pitch 1 too bad it was as hard to stop and place enough gear to prevent a ground fall as the actual jamming, but the top out on pitch 2 felt solid (HVS) 5a to me not 4c!

katherinesydney - 2nd β - 15/Jul/12 with caleb kemics

Both pitches. Detoured onto CC ordinary to avoid nesting birds at the very top of first pitch. Proper old skool HVS, top pitch felt every bit as hard/serious as the first. Absolute brutality, painful jams and an awesome route. Was totally unprepared for the sting in the tail, so very close to coming off but managed to yard up on a wet insecure fist jam.

If at first you don't succeed, keep hammering away at it until your climbing buddies laughter gets too much to bear and then give up. Hardly even started this one, couldn't get over the initial for next time once I've mastered the art of hand jamming.
LeadBalloon - Lead dnf - 31/May/12 with Kelvin

Led P1 and P2. Glad to see I can still jam, classic SW jamming test piece but the rest in the niche allows a needed break on the first crack. Wasn't expecting the sting in the tail but thats what makes this a classic route.

What a fantastic route. I lead the first pitch and Stuart led the second. Once I'd figured out the crux moves at the start, it wasn't too strenuous. Very well protected and 3* quality all the way up. The second pitch has a bit of a sting in the tail, which confirms the impression as a top quality route

me 1st pitch and ben 2nd. really enjoyed leading first pitch but was hard on the hands and my left leg which i keeped raming into the crack but an awsome climb and well protected. and second ben took a good 10ft fall at the top, but has is harder than 4c. you MUST be good at hand jams and willing to loose some blood.
Jordon Fleming - AltLd O/S - 21/Jul/11 with ben darby

Dogged again. 10ft! More like 15ft! First proper lead fall right off the top. Made it afterwards though. Take big gear, you'll need it. I will get this clean one day
Cheese Monkey - AltLd dog - 21/Jul/11 with jordon fleming

Hidden - AltLd - 30/Jun/11

Chris P1, Gary P2. Found first pitch tough, partly due to a lack of big gear on my harness! Also blaming it on a dodgy knee. Partner went the wrong way at the top of p2 & traversed off left along a horizontal crack then up an easy slab with a layback/finger crack rather than going up the continuation crack. Was probably the end of the top pitch of something like Central Groove.
Chris Sansum - AltLd O/S - 26/Jun/11 with Gary Lewin

Cheese Monkey - AltLd dog - 04/Jun/11 with Matt

there is no way in hell the second pitch is 4c. it felt harder than the first (5a) which was also no pushover. frantically grovelled and flailed my way up the top crack. awful climbing. absolutely. awful. 3stars.

First pitch only (have done the second pitch a few times on CCO). Climbed the bottom cleanly and then unnecessarily dogged the roof below the belay by smearing feet (8-10 foot drop). Got back on and finished sensibly. Very Stupid.

I mucked up the last hard moves. Made it more than 4c+.. More like 5b!! Supine Position though!

Thinking I was doing a HS, it took quite a while but did it with some hesitation on the route but in one pitch. Beautiful view from the top

Fell on last section (wide crack) of 2nd pitch, climbed right onto 'route B' to finish. Maybe next time!! it was fantastic up to there though!!

After getting worked ten years ago, finally cruised up this one actually enjoying the strenuous jamming this time! Last few moves are pretty wild for 4c!! Best done as one long pitch to savour the experience....
