Rockfax Description
A steep but juggy pitch which travels through some wild territory at the grade. Start beneath the jutting block at the overhang's widest point. Climb up to the block overhang and pull out across the roof on massive holds and with excellent gear, to a grassy ledge (possible belay). From the right-hand side of the ledge, continue up the face above, heading slightly rightwards and then back left. © Rockfax

Problems pulling the rope through to thread the top two runners before swinging over the o/h. Totally pumped by then but managed to get over the bulge but couldn't reach the finishing hold. Gutted. Harry then romped up the climb with all the runners in place and no rope drag. I followed on blown arms... a very cold & windy afternoon. 9C and gusting @ 25kph! Not what was forecast.

Crikey, this was some lead. I placed a sling on a spike early on and then didn't place anything through the roof; this meant ground fall territory throughout the crux. Not my normal sort of climb. I felt bold and scared. The climbing would have been easy enough but I'm new to Granite and it hurt on my feeble skin. Seriously adventurous.

Not a climb to try when tired ;p. Made the over hang but not enough energy to pull up on the slab. Nice 15 ft whipper. All fine though.

Led 2nd pitch. Had to lower off at the overhang first try to avoid a potential pendulum, but climbed clean after sorting out the ropes.

uncontrollable 14/Feb/10 AltLd O/S

lead first pitch. created lots of rope drag due to clusterf*ck and hat to belay on the grassy ledge. Alan led pitch 2

Despite some faffing with setting the gear, I still mamanaged to catch the rope on the overhanging block. This with the strong winds made it a little more challenging that expected :-)

A cool head and faith in gear required for this one.. Did the crux first time but wussed out, and jumped off. No problems second time though although maybe it is worth getting some gear in on the wall between the OH and the ledge.. (run out!!) Despite its reputation the last bit was suprisingly fun, bold on good holds. Did in 2 pitches.

Got a break in the rain, and started up it. Got a big cam in, and was outward bound at a cruise. Sadly, the break above was sopping and slimy, and I just jumped off. I'll be back.
