Finished by traversing left onto the smooth grey wall of Gundabad by mistake, instead of heading to the right under the roof, but felt stiff for VS so I'm claiming the tick!

Really awkward in the lower chimney! Gondolin just to left would be a better proposition if you're operating at the grade

some painful hand jams in the initial chimney!

Ben Russell - Lead O/S - 28/Apr/13

Horribly polished lower half, making it top end VS 4c I'd say. Good gear throughout, however I carried up two full sets of big hexes and ended up not placing a single one.
pheotleyr - Lead O/S - 27/Apr/13 with Mike

Couldn't quite do the last bit of thrutching. escaped left onto Ganjagood and bypassed it.

Nice climb!
cbeard - Lead O/S - 15/Oct/11

Awkward and polished. We climbed it amidst heavy showers and sections of the lower half were sopping wet.
cem - Lead rpt - 18/Sep/11 with Graham Dolman

Bit dirty and a little loose in the middle (fist sized hold came off in my hand). Not as polished as I'd feared though and there are a couple of exciting moves at the top.

The start with the two cracks is awkward as hell, you have to properly get stuck in and grunt your way to the top. Trebbers suggested the appropriate grade of B!tch severe.

Couldn't remember climbing this previously! Very cold day. Nice route. Couldn't find the polish. A bit of ice in places though.
Chris Sansum - Lead rpt - 20/Dec/09 with Gary Lewin

Strong overhang at the top, and the top of the cracks was a nightmare...

Echoing others but horribly polished on the middle section, the rest is nice with a good move at the top but still not worth it. Never again.

First half of the route is horrifically polished. Makes for really unpleasant climbing. Second half is rather nice with a boldish move at the top.

MikeC59 - Lead - Jul/06

Excellent chimney to ascend at start of climb, not so easy for the big guys. Great last move with pro in roof and exposed step out of the chimney.

craig h - TR O/S - 05/Jun/06 with Shunted

Polish with Mr. Sheen! Very slidy middle bit in the crack and easy pull round to right of overhand just a little leap of faith that there will be holds
