2) 4b, 24m. Traverse out leftwards onto the steeper wall for a few metres to reach the superb corner-crack and follow it to an exciting last move. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb overhanging wall on good jugs. Traverse right following horizontal crack to slab belay. climb corner crack with excellent bridging to top incorporating short slab

Superb climb - looks like it will be harder but the holds appear. Still, steep and sustained for an HS - particularly pitch 2. I think pitch 1 is 4b and I've climbed easier 4c routes than pitch 2.

My Calves were screaming, the cool wind biting & gusting with menace! I was just under the crux of 'Better Things'. I took a moment to compose myself, come on Pixie it's only HS 4b! ...The spooky exposure was heightened by my precarious position bridged on little more than angled smears, no large cams left, i was struggling with a Hex placement, trying to minimise potential fall distance. Below me an intriguing view of Cromlech, with ant like boulderers, seeming like tiny almost insignificant creatures. Life would be so much easier down there with those big comfy boulder mats, still climbing, but safe, warm and bathed in glorious sunshine. Moments later i flowed thru the crux and felt once more, that surge of energy and love for the adventure, we call Trad Climbing!

Alex Mynard 31/May/15 2nd O/S

Nearly had a mountain rescue on this one. 2nd pitch says 25m. We assumed our 35m rope would be enough. Apparently not!!! Leader went up, tail got shorter and shorter. Wind and rock faces destroyed any contact with leader despite using radios and shouting as loud as possible. Add to that it started hailing. Had to tie a sling to tip of climbing rope to connect to my harness. Not best practice but as needs must! No idea where those extra 10m went?!?! A figure 8 and a clove hitch doesnt take 10m of rope. Actual climbing was nice though.

jamie came to some minor grief early on with a crack line short changed by its lowly grade. needless to say, he pushed through it with seeming ease after mustering the confidence requisite to have a go at an unlikely looking move. i took the lead and made haste to the wrong bloody crack. didnt have the stomach for the line (awesome though it was, a MUST do.)in the damp conditions so came back down and got myself back on route. so came to pass a good half hour of fabulous climbing! just kept getting cooler. set up belay on a lovely sofa shaped boulder but Jamie arrived all to quickly. he'd had a long belay so i suspected some frustration might be setting in. not a bit of it.

Lead first pitch comfortably but bottled it on second pitch. Climbing was brilliant up until you have to start bridging out. Was running out of gear, getting tired and starting to panic - never a good combination! So was lowered off and pulled the rope to set up an abseil. Turned into a bit of an epic here. Rop got stuck and belay point was getting very crowded with a couple coming up behind us. Fortunately this meant they could free our rope and retrieve the gear I'd had to leave. Will definitely repeat this-with more gear and a calmer head.

One of my earliest leads. Ignorantly joined pitches 2&3, resulting in epic rope-drag, and only just enough rope to set up the belay.

In the rain, in Super RDs and with big sacs. Part of a 'round trip' started because of poor morning weather in the Pass. Ended up doing Dolerite Dump, Slow Ledge, Reade's Route, Snowdon summit, Spiral Stairs, Dives, and Sabre Cut.
