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...).

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
Cheese Monkey - Lead O/S - 01/Oct/13 with Jamie B

sheelba - Lead - 22/Sep/13

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!
Mark Warnett - Lead O/S - Sep/13

brilliant slab
kirsten - 2nd - 26/May/13 with george

More polised than I remembered at the start
georgeevans88 - Lead O/S - 26/May/13 with kirsten

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.
Nick Russell - Lead O/S - 19/May/13 with Emily

steveprice.exmouth - Lead - 05/May/13 with 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.

petecallaghan - 2nd O/S - 05/May/13 with 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.
Ragingpossum - 2nd O/S - 30/Apr/13 with Ross Davidson, willbris3

Hidden - Lead O/S - 30/Apr/13

Hard for 4c, v. tenuous moves on both overhangs. High feet required, good flexibility helps!

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.

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!
Quirina - 2nd dog - 02/May/11 with Neil Larsen

Hidden - 2nd rpt - 24/Apr/11

aipattison - Lead O/S - 24/Apr/11 with Alex Malins

Good route, some long run outs and a very balancey move over the lip onto the slab but still pretty soft for the grade.
Quarryboy - Lead O/S - 10/Apr/11 with Rob Stanfield, Mark Davies

massive swing potential when seconding. Great climb.

Slick - Lead - 11/Aug/10 with Kevin Vans-Colina

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

Hidden - Lead - 15/Jun/10

J had the 1st (4c) pitch
andy dunn - AltLd O/S - 15/May/10 with J

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.
Will Homoky - Lead dnf - 12/Apr/10 with Tom Whitton

Phil PBC - 2010

mark89 - AltLd O/S - 04/Oct/09

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.
fragglerock - Lead O/S - 30/Sep/09 with Jon Lumb

Marti999 - Lead O/S - 08/Jun/09

Lead pitch 2 though I suspect I went slightly the wrong way!

Kenemo - 2009

Bristoldave - Lead O/S - 19/Jun/08 with douglas

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.
bpmclimb - Lead O/S - 13/Jun/08 with Clare

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.
Humpty Dangler - Lead O/S - 19/May/08 with Jordan Lane

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 19/May/08

Finished up The Corner. Still found moving onto the slab tricky!
thomasadixon - Lead rpt - 16/Apr/08 with Maria

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.
Feeling bold - 2nd O/S - 16/Apr/08 with Tom Dixon

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.
thomasadixon - AltLd O/S - 07/Oct/07 with Nicolas

I led first pitch
adamscottthomas - AltLd O/S - 07/Sep/07 with 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.

Hidden - 2nd O/S - 02/Nov/06

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.
