Direct Route*** VS 5b
[Phil just finishing crux of Direct Route Dinas Mot, 2 kb]74m, 4 pitches. One for the well-rounded VS leader. 1) 4a, 15m. Scramble past the twin pinnacles and head up for 10m. Traverse left to belay as for Lorraine. 2) 4b, 25m. Go up and right, passing a blunt rib to reach a shallow groove. Climb this to a good belay in a bay. 3) 4c, 15m. Move up right to a diagonal crack. Hand traverse this to a step right onto a large ledge and flake belay. 4) 5b, 18m. The polished corner on the left leads desperately to flake cracks and a corner. © ROCKFAX

For my second multi-pitch lead (2nd & 3rd pitches) it was ace! Really enjoyed it, the last pitch going up the corner was a real shunt, loads of foot jams and hand jams and grunting.

Led all except first pitch. Found crux move a little worrying due to the block that's been jammed in below it to extend reach - a proper ankle snapped if your foot pops in the wrong place. Brilliant climb though.

pembrokeshirecaver - AltLd O/S - 11/Aug/12 with John Bennetts

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!

Alt Leads, I led the crux 5b pitch. Bridging is the way. A few moves to get to gear and easier ground - falling before the gear is going to be a nasty, ledge-hitting drop, probably onto the belay.

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!

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?
