Nightmare** S 4a
[Aiding on Nightmare, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
An Avon trade route that, although polished, is still a very classy piece of climbing. It is worth noting that the long runout on the second pitch is not polished. Start at a corner, right of some vegetation. High in the grade.
1) 4a, 12m. Bridge up the corner to below a small overhang and cracked block. Traverse left awkwardly and move up to a small tree and belay ledge just above.
2) 4a, 22m. Pull out right to a ledge beneath a corner. Move up and right around the arete and follow the magnificent line of good holds and ledges boldly rightwards and up to a grassy ledge. Continue to the fir tree belay above with a difficult move to access the ledge.
3) 4a, 20m. Above the fir tree is a right-slanting corner, move up to its start and then traverse right for around 4m to a line of well-used holds on the wall. Climb the wall to an easing and then head left on easy ground to finish. © ROCKFAX

Did this in 3 pitches. Leon lead pitch 1, I then lead 3, it was quite a long travers with no gear for a while. Had to set up an early belay just before the ledge as a group of slower climbers were in front. Weather was stunning!

richardadventurecafe - Lead - 22/Nov/08 with Nick Gray

4 pitches (we split the middle 25m pitch into two, since there was a convenient tree and ledge), which allowed me to lead two of them (my first time at the grade). I got slightly off-route on the third pitch (from our extra belay, up to the main big tree belay below the final pitch to the top) but didn't make it any easier (possibly slightly harder). A good climb, average amounts of polish.

Nice route, if a little polished. The crux challenges you to decide between well protected harder moves or an exposed step out onto the rib. Occasionally this move will force novices off the route, usually accompanied by floods of tears. There are better routes for the novice. Topping out from the tree ledge offers a choice of routes; the easy ascent of the slab 2 metres to the right, or the direct assault of the corner.

A really good route. I didn't think the gear too bad - reasonably protected. The tricky moves the gear is never too far away and is good, the easier moves start to get close to bold and then a huge hold and / or a runner turn up.
