Barbarian*** E1 5b
[Andrew on barbarian, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
The huge corner gives great climbing. Start below the corner.
1) 10m. Scramble up to the tree below the slab.
2) 4b, 15m. Climb the slabby right wall of the corner until you are forced to move left into it. Follow this until you can pull out left onto a ledge belay.
3) 5b, 20m. A hard move round the overlap on the left wall leads to better holds in the corner. Take the crack that runs up the slabby right wall to the next huge roof. The climbing through this is surprisingly easy to the lip. Pull around the lip with difficulty, then move up and left to a ledge (possibly belay if you are knackered). Step back right into the main groove and climb to the top past a wobbly hold. © ROCKFAX

Took a bit of effort this! Feet got coated in bird crap and made the second overhang a tad tricky. Got it without a fall though. Fred took a fall seconding and used a bit of aid. A great E1 in my books!

Terrifying!! And auxillerating
martinlevya82 - AltLd dog - 17/Aug/15

Backed off first crux a few weeks ago. Got it all clean first time today. First crux punishes the short with a long reach for a good hold, second crux punishes the tall: those of the short persuasion will be able to sit in the grotto and admire the view. Brilliant protection where it's needed. Great route and nowhere near as brutal as the name suggests.

jacob shieldhouse hadley - 2nd O/S - 31/Jul/15

I returned to slay the beast after falling off the hard finger crack above the main roof last year. Flowed up the 2nd pitch like a dream, even the hard moves leaving the belay were easy (!), and the foul smelling bird shit all over the rock on the little ledge under the big roof didn't phase me. The horrific moves getting over the lip and up the groove were as bad as ever and I just barely heaved myself up to the waiting jug. There must be a better way to do this but I'm bloody happy I got up it. Way harder than the grade suggests, E1 5c or E2 5b would be fine in my book. Woop!

Insanely hard climb at the grade, felt way harder than every other E1 5b I've done. I made it past the first crux at the start of 2nd pitch (HARD), and then nearly made it past the 2nd crux leaving the big roof before I got pumped on my hand jam and had to rest on gear. Disappointed I didn't finish it clean, I'll get it next time. Cool climbing!

Left it up to Dougie to finish who didn't have any trouble at all, so I had to get me revenge on the route! Still found it horrible climbing and absolutely nails! First overlap was hard and pulling through the main roof felt desperate. Had to full on physically and mentally fight to get to the top of this - an absolute battle and one I'd like to forget!

Beylaed for 2 hours in the rain. Then climbed it really angry. Couldn't communicate well with Sally so she kept the rope ded tight cos there was big rope drag and otherwise there was way too much slack. Couldn't do the ledge bit properly cos had no slack and she couldn't hear me ask. was brilliant climb anyway. I slipped off at least twice.

This felt like by far the hardest thing i've ever climbed at any level, including bouldering, and i did a sodding V9 in 2 hours last week!!! I've heard of some climbs suiting different people to differing degrees but this was insane, i fell off trying to get out from under the niche 4 times, and i was bloody seconding it!!!

Hardest thing I've climbed to date, have a new found respect for E1, think I thought 'I hope that was the crux' about 4 times, even the exit was tricky.... or maybe i was just knackered by then.... :O)

A Very good climb, needing a delicate touch to work the roofs. Quite low in the grade.
IanJackson - Lead O/S - 10/Apr/07 with Big Ian

done as a single pitch (60m ropes). def at the top end of the grade! some desperate moves at the second bulge! heel hooking helps.
