North West Passage*** E1 5b
[steep and unrelenting, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
A great route with a fantastic final pitch. Start from a small niche directly below the left end of the half-height ledge.
1) 5b, 28m. Climb up the crack and gain the first break-line. Follow the vague groove up to the next break, before continuing on to the left-hand end of the half-height ledge.
2) 5b, 44m. From the right-hand end of the half-height ledge, climb up to another large break, and traverse this rightwards until you can reach up for another break. Follow this until it is possible to step up and left across the slight overlap into a slim groove on the right. Head up and right, following the groove, until level with a final break. Traverse left across a groove onto the headwall where a crack system leads up past a series of ledges to the top. © ROCKFAX

al99 - AltLd rpt - 30/Sep/15 with Luke Thomas

Led p1, but finished the abseil too far left so had to traverse across to it. So not sure I was close to the actual line for much of the pitch. Brilliant exposure throughout the route, especially stepping out onto the pillar at the top of p2.

kyaizawa - Lead O/S - 10/Jun/15 with Emma Reynolds

Scary abseil in! P1 very nice, solid and consistent climbing. P2 traverse a bit sketchy, fell off the hard move (stepping across) a couple of times so layback and butched my way up the corner instead. Great rock, chalk vital.
Emma Reynolds - 2nd - 10/Jun/15 with Ky Aizawa

Mark Grist - Lead β - 30/May/15 with Misha

Mark led the money pitch, which is really good! Good moves, interesting line with some nicely exposed moves up high, enough good gear. I led the first pitch, which was pure fun - jugs on demand VS romp fest! Don't often get to do easy stuff like that so really enjoyed it. Pretty chilly on the belay though - unseasonably cold in the wind on a cloudy day, had lots of layers including a lightweight down jacket!

leon - AltLd rpt - 10/Jun/14 with fabricio

Calling this one onsigth as I led opposite pitches to previos ascent - that and Martin went off route last time so we didn't follow the correct line. This time everything went very smoothly. Fantastic climb. Decent first pitch, probably a 1 or 2 star pitch; the second pitch is outstanding 4 star awesomeness. Could climb this route again and again.

P2 only: excellent. Sustained pulling on good holds in great positions. Got some drag on upper wall, having clipped both ropes in groove (top tip: don't). By contrast, clipped neither on the traverse, since I didn't stop to place gear (top tip: do). Told Dave I could afford to run it out because I was "in the zone." Reply: lucky you didn't end up "in the zawn" instead. Smartarse.

Excellent route, especially the top pitch. Martin lead lower pitch and had a bit of a 'moment' taking a slight detour but eventually made it to the ledge ok. I lead top pitch - fantastic traverse, committing and exposed yet with good gear where you need it. Sustained interest though never really desperate. Enjoyable and absorbing right up to the final moves.
