A contender for the best E1 at Gogarth


Ticklists: North Wales Rock Graded List, Ultimate E1 ticklist, Bangor BUMS Uni-Life Ticklist, Tom Ripley's Top 5 E1 Climbs.

Sardien 15/May Lead dog

Led P1, I cant believe I am only the second person to have dogged this route but apparently so according to UKC. Found this very good but hard and sustained with not too much gear on P1. A whimpery tumble coming around the arete and a rest higher up on the first pitch were needed. Maybe try again when my head is stronger!

Cheeky day drip to the G - Interesting abs and a quality romp on pitch one (good lead from Shaun into the Unknown). Broke a hold on P2 and the groove/flake very wet but with good gear.

Led pitch 1 & 3, 2nd pitch was fairly wet! Top route!

Led P2, or at least where I thought P2 went... not entirely convinced we were in the right place!

Started on this. Felt much harder than Quartz icicle and I didn't enjoy it as much.

dswansonlow 11/Apr/14 Lead O/S

All in one pitch. I thought this felt pretty tricky adventurous for E1

Graeme Hammond 10/Jul/11 AltLd O/S

Excellent, led pitch 2 (WHAT A PITCH !!) Both pitches are given 5b though the 1st seemed harder/steeper and with less gear to me.

Great adventure getting to and climbing this. Rookie error not taking guidebook down with us - we were aiming for the E3 further right. In the end it was 1 and a half great pitches of rock followed by one and a half great pitches of steep vegetation. Classic.

very good. a contender for the best E1 at the big G, but not as good as northwest passage in my opinion...
