3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The easiest way up the Dewerstone's most impressive wall is a fine series of pitches. The first pitch is serious and requires care. Start on the right of the face at the base of a small gully.
1) 4b, 24m. Climb up and traverse left to some dubious flakes. Move left, using them with great care, then climb up left to an overhanging corner. Move up this for 2m and then make a blind move rightwards, around a rib, into a parallel corner. Move up to a good stance.
2) 4b, 20m. Ascend the wide crack in the V-groove to the overhang at its top and pull out right. Move up to a widening and traverse leftwards using a thin black crack to a good ledge-belay beneath a clean-cut corner.
3) 4b, 8m. Climb the magnificently-positioned corner to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Excellent, varied, climbing and exposure combine to produce a Classic Rock
climb. Poor protection makes this a serious pitch for both leader and second.
1) 4b. Bold. Start at the earthy corner on the right. Climb this corner, and cracks in the wall, to a small niche, and pick up the likely traverse line. Move delicately across,
and up this, to a large flake. Continue into the niche.
2) 4a. Move right, and make a blind move to gain a groove. Climb this groove to belay on a ledge beneath a chimney.
3) 4a. Climb the chimney (Peg). Move up, and out, of the chimney and into a wide crack. Climb this crack, until an airy leftwards traverse leads to a belay, beneath a hanging corner. (As for Central Groove (Pg 13).)
4) 4b. Climb the corner to the top. Or, try the finish to CC Direct

Saz led p1, I backed off p2 and downclimbed, did not like the no gear V-shaped groove, and I'm glad I did as I found seconding tough. I think I used up everything on leviathan. Led the final 8m crack. Also a squirrel stole my pork pie.

saz_b 29/Aug AltLd O/S

P1 and p2. P1 a little loose but not as bad as described but maybe I'm used to limestone! The blind step took a while to commit to. P2 - no peg? Pretty bold chimney and unprotect-able widecrack but good gear to get around overhang. Traverse over black crack was good! P3 layback also fun. Shame a squirrel stole dans pork pie.

Chris Oldfield 07/Aug Lead O/S

found it very bold. No gear for half of the first pitch or the end of the second pitch. Decking and big swings abound.

Francis Warrick
minty1984 06/Aug Lead O/S

This was a very scary VS!....... those flakes need great caution and gear placement in the 1st half of the 1st pitch needs to be selected carefully. Felt very committing. The blind move around the rib feels very hard until u find the not very obvious foot hold that helps. Great route none the less

A 'Classic' tick! Wonder if the people who say that the first pitch is well protected actually shoved gear behind the 'exploding' blocks...? Bold first pitch for the grade, the move around the rib/rock over I thought was a strong 4C/5A (done easier moves at this suggested grade) The next pitches were on the button, although the move up the corner/rib on pitch two was top end. If you were/are leading at this grade you may have to slip into your brown corduroy's!! Great climb lot's in it, although I wonder how long some of the blocks will survive...

I didn't fancy touching the flakes on the traverse. Fortunately there's holds and gear just above them so you can bypass them. Gear was a bit sparse on the traverse but the climbing is straightforward.

Gosh. Hardest lead...and possibly hardest climb regardless...that I've done to date. Delicate move on first traverse set the tone, as did sticking my foot out around the corner to try and enter the little chimney/crack. Spent quite some time working up to the blind jug, but amazed at how balanced it felt when I finally made the move. Definitely at the top of my comfort zone at the moment, but what a buzz. Made a mistake and shifted onto the direct route (I am told) to gain the first belay. On on up pitch two, more relaxed as a second, but nonetheless exposed compared to most of the climbing I've done. Finished up leading the little "third pitch" (up Route B?). I remember when I first climbed at the Dewerstone I said I'd never EVER be able to lead that. And yet...it is done!! Woop :) And despite it being a bit of a mental rollercoaster...I'd love to climb it again...!

I failed on the first pitch, which caroline then led. I led the second which was also something of a trouser filling experience...

jameswbrae 11/Nov/07 2nd O/S

This route done after attempts by Al on direct. Long with hanging belay - cool! 2nd 2 pitches run into one. A real adventure and great feeling of being by myself, esp. when sun came out over the oak woods.
