looks ordinary and that's just wot it is .pretty straight forward I thought ,reckon if you were feeling brave could walk up this slab with no hands!! maybe not !and I certainly wouldn't risk it ! .An ideal learning curve for an aspiring climber .walk off as usual not very pleasant.alot of parties choosing to ab off to the upper left of slabs.proably a wise thing to do, especially when damp.a great climb though and thoroughly enjoyable!

Alexey, who had never done a multi-pitch route before, had had enough after 2 pitches and I was sufficiently cold & wet by that stage to want to call it a day so we abbed off.

Guy Chater - AltLd - 11/Mar/12

First lead with clients, one had dodgy shoulder and only approach shoes so a easy slab climb was chosen. Due to the clients reaching the crag late, the walkdown was done just before dark, it was decided that a safety line to protect parts of it would be the best course of action and the walk out was done in the dark.

Climbed that in heavy rain with boots. I lead 1st and 3rd pitch. Didn't find the beginning of the traverse to appealing for a belay, so I carried on a bit further. It was quite a night mare, especially the traverse and the descent via wet smooth slabs. We did it in the end and I am glad we did it, but I won't do it again. Only climb this in the rain if you are a confident S (maybe HS) climber and read the descent description in the guide book carefully.

Awesome route. We did when it was absolutely tipping it down and the route was a waterfall. Everything got soaked through waterproofs. I lead the second pitch and Alan lead the first pitch and ran the last two together.
matthewjames - AltLd O/S - 19/Aug/09 with Alan Saul

Having heard the abysmal forcast and having promised Zora a climb, I came up with the plan to do something on Idwal slabs no matter what the weather! Got there in a lot of wind and a lot of rain. Everyone was soaked even before starting and by the time you have stepped a few steps up the waterfall that is The Ordinary Route, you soon forget it and get on with the adventure! I led first and last two pitches, Matt enjoyed the brilliant 2nd pitch - he shouted down how much he was enjoying it frequently - the decent was awkward but someone had left some tat to abseil off thankfully. All in all everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves so I'm glad it panned out that way! Back to Zoras for a great hot meal and bed and an attempt at drying out all our stuff!

Lovely day memorable for three old guys (not that I'm that young) who must have been in their late 60s early 70s doing the route with big bendy boots, ropes tied around their waists and their pro consisted of machine nuts with some cord through the middle. Their belays were primitive beyond belief. They told me that they hadn't climbed for more than 30 years. I think they had the most fun of anyone on the crag. Thomas led P1 & P2 and I led P3 & P4. Finished off by doing Seniors Ridge and walked to the top of Glyder Fawr.

Intended to do an ice route but only Idwal Stream seemed in condition and there was a queue so thought we'd nip up this in big boots before an early away back to town. Sheesh. First couple of pitches were fine but then the snow started to fill in all the cracks and the foot holds became smears. Significant use of ice axes in froze turf!Finding the heather terrace descent was very awkward too! Huw left a sling to ab off and we made the carpark in fast-gathering nightfall.

Placed gear en route for the first time. Set up own belay too (with a little guidance from Rachael!). Last section seemed quite hard - a sort of bulge in the slab which had little protection opportunities. So Diff is harder than it looks, but about as hard as it sounds! Quite a good route for beginners as there's loads of opportunities for a rest. Route off was interesting - some good quality scrambling upwards first, followed by a short step of not-so-nice downclimbing into a gully. Easy after that.

Didn't use the actual huge crack much. Tried to climb mostly on the quartzy rock to the side of the main route to make it more interesting.
