Rockfax Description
One of the defining trad-lines of the country, and a milestone in every British climber's career. Follow the striking open-book corner with increasing difficulty to a tough crux right at the top. An ancient peg sits below the final hard section - it is wise to back this up! © Rockfax

This is a great climb, aside from (or despite) the history and fame. Excellent bridging moves, nothing too easy, a few moves out onto the wall and back in again, really good fun. The corner crack was wet which makes the climb significantly harder, as jamming and laybacking not as easy. The crux is pretty spicy, as is the move into the niche. All in all, some technique required! What a great route on one of the best crags I've ever visited.

Gutted I slipped about one move before the crux. It was still fairly wet, but not sure that's a good excuse...

Great line. Much nicer climbing than it looks from below as you can bridge a lot and there are lots of good handholds to sides of the crack so it never feels thrutchy or off width. Crux high up. Rest steady.

Bridged up the whole route, in control, maybe arrived at crux a little too relaxed and slipped off unexpectedly whilst exploring the holds. Got back on and finished it. Better than last time I tried it many years ago when had to ab off from crux as it was going dark! A great route, will enjoy doing it again some time, maybe will do it clean one day!

Finally finally managed to get on this - and got it clean, but feck me it was a close one. Thought I was making nice work of it, then got wedged in a painful bridging move in the niche. Harder than the rest of the route, and right at the end. Managed to summon the willpower to do it - somehow. Pretty certain it was only desire and complete refusal to fail that got me up the last 10ft.

Watched Oli do it on lead and so I had to lead it too once he had abbed down and retrieved the gear. We had some trouble with the ropes getting stuck and then some blokes faffing around at the top who took 30 mins unfreeing them. By then I had gotten cold and lost my psyche but had a go at the climb anyway. The crack swallowed all my gear and I had hardly any left by the time I made it to the bulge (horrible crux). I tried the crux twice and then totally lost my nerve and ended up threading the fist-sized chockstone with some tat and lowering off of that. Scary! Quality route though. I'll do it clean next time I'm here!

Got above the crux with both hands in the jamming crack above the pudding bowl when my foot slipped off. No energy left after that so it look several goes more to get up it. Top bit is quite difficult as it is several moves of 5b leading up to a 5c move and then a few more 5b moves. With no real rests. Route felt very long. Top didn't seem to get any closer for first 15mins of climbing!

Epic route and a real classic. Climbed in light rain as i couldn't bring myself to walk away from it again because of bad weather. Nice variety of climbing styles and bold moves around the crux. Hands kept slipping off wet holds at top, gritty determination and a little cursing kept me on the rock. Still smiling!!

Wet at the top, came through the crux then off the last move as the hold was soaking. Superpleased I went for it though and got up it all the way as I agreed to do a long time ago. Awesome climb! Every bit as good as I expected it to be

Excellent corner-shuffling followed by a crux that was a bit of a wake up call as it was about two grades harder than the rest of the route and wasn't over till I got the finishing jug. The bottom third of the crack was seeping but apparently it often is - wasn't really an issue though as didn't really have to use the wet holds.

Some love this climb, others do not. Some think it is underrated and others think the opposite. The route is what it is, and each person has their own point of view, but it is undeniably iconic, and to me is very important as it provided me with 17 years of inspiration. Now I have led the route a monkey is off my back. Protection superb, situation excellent, history is all there with the peg, pudding stone and all those moves you have heard about. Go enjoy it.

Great route to do if you find this grade intimidating. The crux is so high - if you motivate yourself to get up near it, you won't be tempted to back off at that stage. Also the crux sort of creeps up on you: by the time you realize you're on it it's as good as done.

If you like your climbing wiht LOTS of gear this is it. Take the lot, you will get it in. I got 18 runners in! Why carry it if you're not going to us it? The climbing is superb, the position excellent and the sting in the tail is the move from the notch. Has anyone else bridged out of it? I am no jamming fan, and too chiken to layback but will bridge anything. E1 5c is bang on the button. Was amazed how good the rock still is given the years of heavy traffic. Be there early (0700 in June) for that reason, plus you get the early sun and won't boil.

Drove up to Llanberis on the fri night,bivied (Kev wanted to do the route in the dark with headtorches,I declined!looking back that would have been some adventure though!)got up and walked up to The Corner.Kev led,it looked hard!He belayed off a tree to the right so he could see me 2nding.Did the route ok till the top move where i realised that the top runner I`d taken out was directing the rope down the corner,and now I was doing the crux with quite a pendulum potential! struggled,but made it ok.Cracking route! (drove to Gogarth in the afternoon & did Dream of White Horses.)
