What a route! Led pitches 1, 3 and 4. Groove pitch sensational, but could do with a bit of crack clear out to find a few more runners. Friction amazing throughout, not a bit of polish. Nexus traverse on P3 felt 5c to me. Also someone with a crowbar on a wet day could do with moving the cam blocking the hold on the traverse!

p.2. Attempted p.4 but fell where the in-situ cam partly blocks the necessary hold! Be back for the scary p.3 one day. Amazing route, and just incredible friction!

2 Pitches only with 60m ropes, if you start on the top of the first ledge. Actually found the top pitch much harder than the 5c pitch but Andy led all, I was happy to second both pitches clean and psyched to lead it next

Dougie led up until the Nexus belay in one pitch and I led to the top in one go. Cool route - some really baffling and precarious moves on the low pitches! I think most moves involved a smear or two. Found the traverse bit harder this time as a cam was stuck in the handhold which made moving across to the arete more awkward. Amazing sunset and sky over an inversion in Llanberis on the top belay to top it all off.

Scrambled up to ledge, I did the first 2 pitches, then Darren went to the top. Puzzling crux with good gear but the slab below would break your fall first.

FatRob stole the crux pitch. A good route but not great so that was surprising. Covered in an appalling amount of chalk, really lessened the climb, shame on whoever lugged buckets full of the stuff up there.

Did this after Lubyanka earlier in the day - a great day out. I got the crux pitch and spent a long time trying to figure out the puzzling crux, where falling off wouldn't be a great idea. Eventually managed it with some weird contortions. The rest of the pitch was pretty trick as well. Tim took a while to commit to the 5b traverse moves on the next pitch - when I got there, I found out why! We were pretty tired by that point, having done a few routes on the Cromlech the previous day as well. A good route.

It all starts at P2. (P1 being easy but pretty much unprotected 4b climbing / traverse) P2 has gear were you need it although the belay described in the book is not a good as you want. P3 is sublime friction climbing, gear found after every move but not before. Some contortions needed but any grit stone climber would be familiar with any of them, P4 pretty steady 5a with a small one 5b in the sky bit polished but nothing compared to numerous other routes in the pass. P5 lovely 4b climbing. (I stitched it into P4 just care on rope work)

lead p2 and 4. pitch 2 felt bold but with good moves, pitch 3 was balancy for the crux but pretty solid 5a for the rest. pitch 4 was amazing traverse on jugs out to the arete, so gutted I forgot my camera. made a total mess of the belay at the top of pitch 2. seems to be becoming a recurring trend.

Last route after two weeks in the pass. Lead 2nd and 4th pitches (5b and 5b). Nice climbing on both, tho the traverse on pitch 4 has the most polished holds I've ever come across. Hat of to matt for leading the precarious crux pitch.
