Nice climb, massive run out at the slab.
Baking hot. 25 degrees at 9pm! Sweaty slab climbing. Found the step up really easy this time but found the slab quite spooky. Belayed from tree just below ledge
|Tom F Harding||28/Apr||Lead β|
|Steve Bartle||28/Apr||2nd rpt||
Once again ran out of time to do the link up to Aftermath via The Corner.
Pretty run out, steady climbing though
|Steve Bartle||21/Sep/14||Lead O/S||
We were intending on doing the link up with Aftermath, via the 2nd pitch of The Corner, but ran out of time, so abbed off from the roof belay (please bolt this fully...).
|Cheese Monkey||01/Oct/13||Lead O/S||
First half was horribly dirty from rock clearance work. The moves were lovely up to the big slab though, then drunkenly wandered around trying to find gear and holds with terminal rope drag. Not the best route with a single
|Mark Warnett||?/Sep/13||Lead O/S||
Took a while to work out first move through the overlap. Went straight up the slab to The Corner belay which is a more obvious line but starts to get very run ot with only one medium cam in a dirty crack. Went straight up abpve the Corner belay, yarding on a huge old rusty bolt which was also good value!
P1 to approach Pink Wall Traverse
|George Frisby||24/Aug/13||2nd O/S|
More polised than I remembered at the start
|Nick Russell||19/May/13||Lead O/S||
Continued up the slab direct to link up with The Corner and then Aftermath: a highly recommended combination. Due to a minor oversight in the morning, I arrived at the base of the climb without a harness. Turns out a 120cm sling and a couple of screwgates can be made to work.
Pete Callaghan, Stu Fox
Contender for the gorge's softest HVS, nice though. The slab part of the route doesn't have much gear, but is easy climbing.
Stuart Fox, Stephen Price
One move stepping on to the slab was a little tricky. Finished up dawn walk to the ledge.
Entertaining occurrences when climbing, 2nd over hang/lip felt pretty standard 5a.
Hard for 4c, v. tenuous moves on both overhangs. High feet required, good flexibility helps!
|James S||18/Sep/12||Lead O/S||
Went the wrong way oops
|The Ivanator||24/Jun/12||2nd O/S||
Nice. Continued straight up the slab to 2nd belay of the Corner, climbed the corner to the Gallery and then finished up Aftermath - 3* combination.
|Stewart Armstrong||24/Jun/12||Lead O/S||
finished up Corner and Aftermath
Aided the first overlap and rested on the second.
Nice 1st pitch.
Someone should have told me it was a "bum" move... First ledge is perfect fit for my bum and using it as such is the only way to get past it!
Good route, some long run outs and a very balancey move over the lip onto the slab but still pretty soft for the grade.
massive swing potential when seconding. Great climb.
|Clay C||19/Mar/11||AltLd O/S||
I led P1, Seb led the easier pitch up to Lunchtime Ledge
|Pete Rigby||18/Mar/11||AltLd O/S||
|Chris Sansum||18/Sep/10||AltLd O/S||
Gary p1, Chris p2 (no gear placed)
Lead the first main pitch exiciting. The Slab felt like 1 of them long slabs in the alps just wondering round everywhere picking the easiest line
|andy dunn||15/May/10||AltLd O/S||
J had the 1st (4c) pitch
|Will Homoky||12/Apr/10||Lead dnf||
Went through the roofs no problem.. got wimpy on the run-out above them and bailed. Ended up doing equally adventurous traverse from Lunchtime Ledge to the belay by the roof to retrieve gear. Oops.
Started off wrong and begun heading up 'Rude Awakening' before getting back on track just below the second overhang. Brought Jon up on a Peg and nut belay just below the overlap on a good stance. Led on the remaining run-out pitch First 15m on very rotten Limestone with shi1e gear. Otherwise good fun.
Lead pitch 2 though I suspect I went slightly the wrong way!
Crossed Dawn Walk and went straight up the slab to a peg and bolt belay under the R end of the big roof (second belay of The Corner). Some thin moves (5b?) and a big run out. Then used a higher traverse line on undercuts and saplings to rejoin Dawn Walk at the wide crack.
|Humpty Dangler||19/May/08||Lead O/S||
Fantastic route up the slab past two overhangs. Low one was straightforward, upper one took some thinking about; took a step to the right, then moved left and up. Protection good where it's needed, thin elsewhere. Blythe and Jordan both seconded. Blythe was singing, which was nice. So was Jordan, which wasn't.
Finished up The Corner. Still found moving onto the slab tricky!
|Feeling bold||16/Apr/08||2nd O/S||
It was gratifying to hear applause from below (Neil and John) when i cleared the overhangy crux, the polish didn't help. Cheated on The Corner finish and used bolt.
did it all as one which was interesting nice climb though
Lead 1st pitch, good climb. Found getting onto the slab much trickier than getting over the 1st overhang, which was one none too hard move.
I led first pitch
Oliver Mentz and Ellen Taylor
Had to aid to do the first crux move (on 2nd), getting onto the slab was hard, but nothing compared to the first move, was too knackered and shakey to enjoy the rest of it. Led pitch 2.
Ollie & Adam
Lead the 2nd easier pitch
Lead 2nd pitch
There were a couple of places where Ian had to stop and think, but he was leading. Seconding, I had to use a knee (heinous) to get up over the overhang. I wasn't too troubled by the rest.
|beardy mike||??/2006||Lead O/S||
After grit superstar AR backed off - he hadn't lead owt in a while.
|Jim Brooke||31/May/99||2nd O/S|
p1 of this and then The Corner, p3 only.
|chris sm||06/Oct/94||Lead O/S||
|leland stamper||??/1988||2nd rpt||
move on to the slab was a stretch
|leland stamper||??/1985||Lead O/S||
went straight over 2nd OH
VS** 4c,3b at the time (S.Monks 1980 guide)
Tricky. Soloed pitch 2
