Direct Route*** VD
[view from the top of direct route, 2 kb]85m, 5 pitches. A great polished classic which is almost always busy. The nature of the climbing means that it attracts its fair share of struggling seconds (and leaders) who curse and swear their way up the polished wide cracks, flakes, chimneys and grooves.

Found the 1st pitch hideously polished. The rest was really pleasant varied climbing. I really don't know where some of the grades come from in lower grade climbs. Personally found some of the moves harder than anything on Pendulum Chimney (Severe 4b) or Doorpost (HS 4b).

Did P1 only. Nice little pitch - running with water though (that would be to do with the rain falling). Investigated setting this up as a TR option for groups. Set-up easy enough; retrievable abseil too, but rope stretch on 60m of rope would be a bit off-putting. Maybe to set as a proper top-rope, but then again communication with group would be tricky at 30m.

Hidden - 2nd - 27/Sep/09

Wow! What an amazing route. Sustained and quite hard for the grade. Led P1 (overhang start) and P3 (hand traverse). The 'interesting' finish to the hand traverse was possibly the most scared I've ever been on a lead, given the extremely polished rock, how far I was from my last piece of gear and the swing potential. Thought I would going to die! (NB. this is the second time I've said this in a week regarding a North Wales 'classic' VDiff!!!)

Awesome, utterly sublime climb sustained with nearly every inch a VDif move. Has it all with its final chimeny, flakes, slabs, hand traverses, cracks. Magic. Traversed down for Ivy Chimney afterwards.
jimorothy - Lead - 21/Sep/08 with Rachel Crolla

Last day of a five days course at the Brenin. Had never climbed before this week and my arms were absolute agony whilst belaying. The arm pain made retriving a threaded sling anchor on a bit with no foot hold interesting.

did in 5 pitches, led pitches 1,2 & 5. Excellent climb, despite the polish. bex didn't fancy the chimney, so she led up a groove to the right and belayed above the chimney, which i found easier than i thought it would be, don't think i'd like to do it in the wet though!
