what a great climb, loved every minute of it. Perfect gear, sinker nuts everywhere, meaning you can pop one in and just enjoy the climbing for a few metres without worrying. One of those lines you feel was made for (trad) climbing. Found middle crux as hard as the top. Up there with Darius as the best climb of the year (easier too!) Psyched.

Enjoyable process to manage the ropes, the gear, the moves and crucially, 'the pump' - making sure there was something left in the tank for the top bit. The sunshine helped too.

At last! Nearly fluffed at the last minute by unexpectantly slipping off a foothold. Managed to hold onto two small crimps, pull myself together and finish the route clean. What a route. 40 metres of HHVS really but makes it hard work. You just need to be fit. Next stop the direct finish.

And on the eighth day, God dreamed up the idea of having rocks for man to climb and dutifully created Left Wall as his masterpiece! Climbed as a true ground up experience, four years after an obviously disappointing fall from top section with lower off. Very naive on tactics & strategy.... This time things were very different. In fact, i almost couldn't believe how easy it was! Utterly, utterly classic and absorbing througout!

Dave Foster - Lead O/S - 11/Jul/10 with Andy
Gutted. Approached the climb all wrong. Placed too much gear and got pumped and gripped. All the hand holds are reasonable and none of the moves are desperate but it's very sustained with no big rests, and some poor foot holds add to the difficulty. Underestimated it and got spanked. I'll be back for it clean next year. At least I had the pleasure of watching an elegant climber master Right Wall.

It had rained heavily overnight but the rock was drying in the morning wind, so we decided to slog up to the Cromlech to have a look. Mark didn't fancy the Gates in the end, while the Corner was soaked. Left Wall looked dry though so I decided to give it a go. Enjoyable, steady HVS 5a (short 5b section?) to the fork in the cracks. Fortunately the crux section proved to be easier than I had feared. Found lots of half-rests and hence managed to lace the diagonal crack - seven nuts from start to finish, 18 pieces in total. Great feeling getting to the easy ground on the arete. Still feeling the previous day's slate sport routes so had plenty of rests and took an hour to do the route. Mark did an excellent clean second. We had the crag pretty much to ourselves, just one other team on Dives. Now need to find another Snowdonian classic to dream about!

Got the big tick.....one very brilliant pitch which just keeps going but never too difficult.....moderate gear placements (11'ish)....no real jamming until the end just laybacking off the flake....the little traverse at the end seemed to pop up sooner than i expected and then it was over.....trick is to take all the rests you can get along the way....my second E2, so the grade seems fair....although no one move is that hard (excewt for the last bit of the crack as it slants out left)....defo 3 stars!!!

Lead in good style on my second attempt - first some time earlier when confidence was lacking. One of the best experiences ever (it was still hard in those days!) and I must admit to being sorry I repeated it 3 or 4 years later, being forced to rest on a runner due to unfitness - a shame to taint the memory. Never go back!

Led in style of day. At the ledge I lent on a spike to shout to my second that I was at the belay - the spike failed and I took a 40 fall as much of my gear failed(drilled out nuts. Lead again May 26th 1987 without incident.
