75m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A popular route in a good position. Start at the base of a groove with 'PMP' etched on it.
1) 27m. Climb the groove for 4m, move right and climb the arete to a tree (possible belay). Continue slightly to the right up the next groove above a ledge to another tree in a bay.
2) 10m. Traverse right across the slab to belay in a corner left of the nose.
3) 4a, 30m. Step right onto a nose of rock. Climb round the right-hand side of the nose which leads to the base of the upper slab (possible belay). Climb the slab then step right to a ledge. Scramble off above. © Rockfax

Tough first pitch for the grade, ran the 3rd & 4th pitches together, absolutely laced the slab with pro. Really good climb and shows very little of the polish often found on the easier climbs on Bwlch y Moch, infact, little more than I found 40 years ago.

After a false start climbing from where PMP is scratched into the rock (might be worth a mention in the guide!) we then possibly found the correct start to the route. Scrappy initial climbing improved a little towards top of 1st pitch. 2nd pitch harder than grade suggests - we stepped right into the groove and followed it to the very top, the exit was nails - 3rd pitch absolutely lovely, enjoyed every move and position, suddenly I was back on a laid back Severe route deserving 3 stars. Descent was steeply through the jungle.

LauraChilterns 07/Sep/14 AltLd

Read an earlier post that noted the different routes for this climb, depending on whether you use the Rockfax book or the Climbers Club guide. Indeed, they are different climbs except for the really lovely arÍte in the last pitch. Wish we had used the CC guide instead of Rockfax.

Lead P1 and P3, after a false start on P1 before the heavens opened and subsequent retreat to Eric's. Then on completion got lost looking for path/descent abseil, finally found abseil, ropes stuck, swam up vertical brambles and loose rock to retrieve them, stuck again, finally retrieved them , then Greg fell 15ft backwards off the path and landed in a pit of brambles. Hard day out for one S 4a. Great route though!

P1 and 2 look little travelled but P2 is very worthwhile and tough for S. I suspect most go up the Borchgrevink start which is where PMP is scratched into the rock.

The Rockfax description for this is wrong. The description for this is actually the PMP/Borchgrevinck combination. I started up the actual PMP (about 15 metres right of where this is described as starting (up Borchgrevinck)) in trainers (Abseild off after about 15 metres and went to do something else). Fairly dirty and not at all obvious. Although this is the original way of climbing PMP, it's certainly not the best. The Borchgrevinck/PMP combination is much better (and I suspect that's what most people do, without realising it. See the current CC description for a properly researched and correct description. Ignore the Rockfax if you want to actually do PMP in it's entirety.

4 pitches, I led 1 & 3, Traverse on pitch 2 is well protected. Pt 1 step right onto arete, don't leave to late unless you to deal with the overhanging block at about 4b! Note tricky to find a good belay on the ledge at the top of the cracks on pt 3 as the obvious nut placement is actually under a detached block. Consider moving right at top of cracks to alternative ledge or continue through to the top.

Rob Lead P1&2 together as 1 Pitch, slightly greasy start with the best part of these pitches is below the overhand, step up high, then easier step around to the right and follow crack to belay point at tree. I lead P3&4 together, trending right to nose, climb up on to Rib (great opportunity for second to take picture of lead person or when second is at that point as well from above). Follow cracks all the way to base of pillars. Great hand and foot placements for final 6m.

I lead P1+2 in one go, and Lee lead the rest in one go. I found the starting move of P2 was pretty hard (5b?). I climbed the groove immediately before the P2 belay to the top with a 5c move. Seemingly I missed the final footless traverse to the left, which anyway didn't look Severe at all. What was wrong?!

Anna's first multi pitch and third day of climbing. This route is great never to hard and very exposed. Anna got up to me on pitch two she thought she was having a heart atack but I soon calmed her down. Instead of doing the big walk off we abbed down Barbarian. I asked Anna if she had abbed before "yea yea I'm a outdoor instructor" I add for kids. I threw the rope down started the abb. Anna looked down " I have never abbed like that before" So I gave her a quick Dale abb crash corse for the two big overhangs. Went down first kept hold of the rope as she abbed everything went fine nice one.

We did an alternative (and much harder) start (allegedly Peutery's Original). I led pitch 2, which saw me head into a difficult groove and required a bold hand traverse finish. Bottled-it on the hand traverse 'cos I didn't know what was around the arete, so set-up a belay. Should have gone for it 'cos that one move onto the arete was the end of the pitch and a bomber belay awaited. Doh!
