Godzilla** E4 5c
[Reaching the shake-out, 4 kb]

Rockfax Description
A very sustained and well-protected route that follows the corner-groove to the right of the large fin of rock. Start below the corner and climb it for 10m then traverse left to a good rest just below the fin. Continue up the crack/flake that leads up and right to a roof. Some thrutching leads to some hollow flakes. These enable an exit to be made from the vice-like niche to a rather fine bridged position on the lip. More steep ground needs to be covered, before you reach the sanctuary of the final easier groove. Care needed to avoid rope drag! © ROCKFAX

Brilliant. Pretty steady all the way, but I thought bold through the crux at the loose/hollow fangs. Not hard but not straightforward grab and pull climbing here. Semi soft E4

Some hard moves on so-so gear in the initial crack, then a bit damp going under the roof. Easy and pleasant up the ramp. Eszter belayed below the final roof so I got to do that. Intimidating but fairly straightforward, just don't pull too hard on those flakes!

Done purely because dad had no other partner there to do it with. I felt like it was more of a 'haul' rather than 'climb' route. With it being 3 grades above my ability I seriously questioned why I agreed to follow dad up. The things you do for family.

Sustained. Ran out of gear on the overlap and then ran out of steam

nice climbing up until just below the roof ..then it gets a bit thugy. Thought the Fangs would be the crux but they are fine, Easy to the top.

Dr Toph - Lead O/S - 13/May/10 with Ed

great trad! all pretty steady but found the traverse rightwards to niche under roof trickier than it looked. bring lots of gear - i took and placed about 20 draws and it didnt feel / look over-geared. totally recommended. Fr 6b
