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

Contender for the gorge's softest HVS, nice though. The slab part of the route doesn't have much gear, but is easy climbing.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
