Suicide Wall Route 2** E2 5b
[Suicide Wall Route 2 snapped on my phone, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
Another excellent outing on this amazing wall. Start below a crescent-shaped ledge.
1) 5b, 28m. Climb up to the crescent-shaped ledge then move right along this to a blunt rib. Head round this to gain some flakes that take you further right. A few steep and awkward moves lead up onto a ledge and belay.
2) 5a, 17m. Move up the diagonal groove and follow it onto the slab above and continue to the top. © ROCKFAX

Love the crux two finger pinch, going up to a blind hold.
Andy Peak 1 - Lead - 06/Sep/14 with Andrew Deckon

Lots of chalk and ticked holds detracted somewhat from the adventure, but excellent climbing none the less. Done in one 5big pitch.

Ran out of draws for top part. Not sure the comments re line are justified: it seemed reasonably obvious i.e. negotiate flakes, a few pulls and your stood at the bottom of a slabby section, aim for the left facing corner / groove at the RHS of the slab. Glad I escaped right here though as I found this top part tough on second when Rob mistakenly finished up it as the end to Last Rites (this was no way 5b, 5c for sure [smearing and swapping feet very delicately] or maybe it's a weakness of mine?) Anyway, good climbing and very worthwhile. Gear does need some effort and it is quite spaced.

Short lived route, glad I'm not the only one who thought that the second part wasn't great or obvious

owain86 - Lead β - 02/Jul/11 with Alex Mason

Nice climbing on big holds in the middle but afterwards the route loses its way and has an empty feel.
Alex Mason - Lead O/S - 02/Jul/11 with Owain Atkins

Got rather pissed off and frustrated with where I was supposed to be going after the flake line. It was ok up to there, except the E4 start that I accidently found myself trying to do and had to rapidly exit from. Dissapointing route overall, the other one is tons better

Hard start for the short (5ft 6) more like 5c above dodge landing, (since doing Capital Punishment with the Ogwen guide, I realise I started up Penal Servitude, Ooops!) then steady 5b to the top but run-out, difficult route finding above jugs. Skyhook helpful,one of the best trad experiances I've ever had!!!
