Super Direct*** E1 5b
75m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Are you a slab-master or a crack-addict? You'll need both skills for this classic.
1) 4b, 30m. Start as for Direct Route. At the twin pinnacles, head right and traverse delicately above a rock scar. Move up to belay on a ledge 6m below an overhang.
2) 5b, 30m. One of the best slab pitches in Wales, and therefore the World! Climb past the small overhang to a good runner on Diagonal. Move up, then traverse left boldly to a thin crack. Follow this (technique required) up to the ledge on Direct Route, belay on the bollard below the small roof and crack.
3) 5b, 15m. Climb the bollard and pointed flake to gain the overlap. A stiff pull up and right gains the overhanging corner-crack. Power up this to the top. © ROCKFAX

Maddie - AltLd O/S - 29/Sep/14 with Sam P

papashango - AltLd O/S - 18/Sep/14 with Glynn

Lead pitch 1+3. Pitch two is amazingly flowy slab climbing with some two finger pockets in the right places. Don't climb to utilise the in-situ sling! It only makes the climbing harder and looks like dodgey protection at best!! Great route despite the polish.

Ross led P1 and P3, I unwittingly volunteered to deal with the main event which was the second pitch as my 3rd E1 lead, getting Elvis leg while trying to step left into the crack was pretty unnerving! By the time you realise the consequences of fluffing up the crux you are well and truly committed! I felt pretty happy when I eventually reached the flake! Easily in the top five pitches I've led so far!

danwilliams99 - 2nd - 18/Jul/14 with Liam, Dylan

Love the Mot...hate the top pitches, just too thuggy. I (we!) wimped out of p3 in the fading light (good excuse), traversed round to finish up Western Rib. P2 is where it's at, fabulous pitch.

Led p1 and p3. Really enjoyed the steepness on P3.
Mr Tickle - AltLd O/S - 15/Jul/14 with Will

Led P1 and P3. Went right too low on P1, which is interesting but unprotected 5a climbing for some moves going back up to the original line. P2 Still one of the best pitches ever.

Glyn - AltLd O/S - 22/Jun/14 with Amy

I lead pitch one, took a line right of where we should have been leading straight up to the traverse which felt like bold HVS 5a. I tried leading the final pitch but couldn't work out the sequence so handed the reins over to the boy. The whole route was pretty out there! Amazing!
Mr. K - AltLd rpt - 22/Jun/14 with James Oswald

Absolutely amazing. Lead P2 & P3. The first pitch was hard because Kyle was off route. The 2nd pitch is fantastic, runout climbing with spaced but good gear and fantastic moves. Delicate and great. P3 is overhanging with some brilliant thuggery involved. Well deserving of it's classic status.
James Oswald - AltLd O/S - 22/Jun/14 with Kyle Wood

P1. Glyn took the E1 pitches. P2 and P3 great contrast, from delicate and shabby to intimidating overhang corner - not as bad as it looks though.
Amy UT - AltLd O/S - 22/Jun/14 with Glyn

Justin T - AltLd O/S - 19/Jun/14 with Nick B

Lead the first and last pitches. The slab was superb and really thin and delicate. The last corner requires a bit more thuggery!
Jack93 - AltLd O/S - 17/Jun/14 with Jim Hulbert

P2. Unbelievable! What a pitch of climbing, all there and with gear as well. Insanely good. Top crack also excellent.

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 03/May/14

Quality! Lead P2, which is definitely the one to lead. Thought there was quite a lot of gear and although some of it was small every now and then you get a mega bomber bit. Pretty steady if you trust your feet. Slightly bold traverse then you're away :)
jezb1 - AltLd - 30/Apr/14

Magnificent slab climbing on pitch 2 and really nice bridging/jamming laybacking on the top pitch. Led pitches 2 and 3.

will moy - AltLd - 14/Apr/14

Lead P2. After a bit of deliberation above the good cam on diagonal, managed to get to the crack with minimal swearing. A good exercise in footwork. Most definitely 5b, especially the last pitch - glad I didn't lead that!

Led P1 only this time due to it getting dark and Rich being quicker. Next time Ill come early and do P2. What a climb!
Sardien - AltLd - 09/Jul/13 with Rich Gentry

Immaculate! Led all pitches with P2 being the stand out. Bit pokey going left into the thick of things, couldn't find the runner on Diagonal (I put a cam under Diagonal's roof) but did fiddle in some micro wires in the seams. Steady enough once you go for it. Just delightful climbing even if I wasn't necessarily thinking that at the time!

Led P1 cleanly. Seconded P2 - nice pitch. Tried P3 but had to lower off from under roof. Patrick tired, and couldn't do P3, and so I led the Direct route last pitch, VS 5b, though crux (the bottom) crack all wet, so as the CC guide suggested, used Patrick's shoulder once I was up bridging, as there was no purchase on the slime, and no more bridging to be had without some hand purchase. You need bigs cams up here, and placing anything smaller is hard! Top was wet as well. Lowered Patric down to retrieve gear on other P3 pitch, and hauled him back up! :-)

Lead the 2nd pitch which is absolutely amazing. Seemed a massive run out from where you leave diagonal to the big slot. I was so happy to get to that slot I tried to chuck all of my gear into it!! Chris started leading out of the 3rd pitch of Direct route which I took over after he decided to call it a day.

Lovely slab pitch - made all the more interesting by the fact that I got one of my ocular migraines as I started up it. Lucky I was seconding - but still quite a challenge spotting the footholds through all the fuzzy flashing lights! Led Ps 1 and 3 (after a nice long lie down on the ledge!)

Super route if you like slabs and balancy moves the main pitch should be just up your street. I had the main pitch andy got the other two. Good climbing all the way. Main pitch sustained 5b slab, top pitch couple of steep 5b moves mellowed by stemming.

Originally climbed with Bob Millward during a very wet week, then repeated in July '86 with Duncan Lee, then again with Keith Bolton in about 1998. I nearly always seem to get that butch top pitch on lead!
