griffithpatrick - AltLd O/S - 06/Sep/15 with amy trower
Gav Williams - 2nd - 06/Sep/15 with Julian Lane
Led throughout and had to use combined tactics on the 5b start to P4 bit because a/ crack was too wet to allow layback and b/ I'm not good enough to do it by bridging. Rest of the pitch is good but tiring 4c stuff. Back of the final crack was green and sopping but decent jugs in the gloom. Great day.

VS really? Than make sure you led some E1 before.
Start of P4 is very hard and you risk fall out of a ledge and than big swing.

Finally came back and conquered the top pitch. Led p2, p4. First few moves of P4 definitely the technical crux but it's a traditional thuggish bridge/flake hugging fest to the top. Gear good but it's energy sapping stopping to place it. Glad that I didn't do this as a new VS leader!

Excellent route, I think. The final pitch would be a good gritstone route, and is good fun; don't be too bothered by the '5b' grade. Unfortunately, if you don't pay proper attention to navigation, as we didn't, then it is possible to veer off to join 'Superdirect' on P2. A bit alarming, but got up it anyway, to rejoin 'The Direct' for the last pitch. Splendid rock!

My pitches were clean onsight. But fell two or three times as a second on the last pitch.
I loved pitch three:
"Large holds lead up right to a steep diagonal crack. Monkey along this for a couple of metres, then stride rightwards climbing easily to a long ledge." CC
Pushed me technically, so I had to take a breath and commit, but not horrific.

Definately need to be confidant at VS for this one!Great route up the middle of Dinas Mot.Led pitches 1 & 3.pitch 2 is sustained 4b! The hand traverse pitch was easier than i`d expected,and the top pitch is desperate,no gear till you`ve done the crux(bridge it!) and not easy up the flakes,bit pumpy. good lead by Rob on top pitch!

After doing this route several times, I still absolutely love it. Start is a little non-describt, but things keep building and getting progressively better. For a VS multi-pitch- its a winner.

Perhaps the only time I've really lost my temper while climbing was on the last pitch of this route. I was doing the trying bridging on the start of the last pitch and received some doubtless well intentioned but very badly timed advice from clibers on the route to the right, just as I was (successfully, thankfully) exploring the limits of my technique and adhesion on the polished moves. In my stressed state, my response was terse and direct...but I did apologise once i got to the top of the crag. Strange how you react to stress, isn't it?
