Great Western*** HVS 5a
[A wonderful evening at Almscliff, 2 kb]15m. Perhaps Almscliff's most famous classic. The steep corner leads to the roof and a large spike, traverse left into an exposed position and pull into a short crack with difficulty (hidden holds?). From a rest on the uncomfortable pedestal, finish up a short crack or, MUCH better, head right up the jamming crack on Western Front - the icing on the cake. Be aware of rope drag problems. © ROCKFAX
Climb the corner below the overhang till it is possible to take the horizontal break on the left. Follow this till it is possible to climb up into the niche at the end (cramped rest). Then decide either to climb up the original awkward crack above and slightly left or much better climb 'The Five Star Finish', which takes the steep crack up and out right in a magnificent position

Rescuing gear from the last person to climb the route. Seconded up to half way across the traverse and led the rest. Fantastic route - been waiting to get on this for a long time.

Took 2 rests on the cam on the hand traverse after being 100% sure the hidden hold was ...not where the hidden hold was. Even had the energy for the move into the rest if I wasn't faffing with the not-the-good-hold trying to find the good bit. I will do this clean.

Amazing, it's been 'the route' I've wanted to do ever since my first trip to the cliff. But always been put off by being told it was hard/scary! Was actually fine and easy climbing in the end. A good Dolphin VS!

Did this yesterday having put it off for far too long. Good holds all the way. Also the 'hidden holds' are not hidden, you can see them from the ground. I just thought I would say so to avoid people groping around forever trying to find something that doesn't exist.

Remember seeing this route the first time I came to Almscliff four years ago, just after starting to lead. Tom pointed it out and I remember thinking it looked nigh on impossible. Turns out it's not so bad. Fantastic climbing on jugs all the way, made all the better by having lots of good friends at the bottom to will me up it. Topped out to see a rainbow in the next field and a stunning view. Climbing doesn't get much better.

Made the traverse left from the corner to the inverted y-crack, bottled it, made the traverse back....get a grip rich. I think the universal mind game here is 'do I have enough left to pro up and move, or will i peel in trying to do so and take the swing in the process'.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 16/Aug/09

One I had wanted to do for a long long time, probably my most anticipated route ever! Decided to give it a crack, whyever not?! Got up, wussied out of laybacking the crack, came back down a little, committed to the easy layback moves up into the thread (which I didnt notice). Reached across right, put in a cam as far as I could along the break. And quickly ran across the traverse. Then the mess. I reached round the corner to the hidden pocket, realised I was turned the wrong way, crossed through to a jam and then left hand up onto the top of the ear. Up into the niche. How could anyone say that is a poor rest? I was literally lieing on it with no hands, must be being ironic I guess! Did the 5 star finish just to get the full effect, I love hanging jamming cracks and this one is in such a great position with a cool heel-hook round the right, I hung out and just admired the view before topping out. Brilliant, worth the wait and its weight in gold!

Felt quite good at the top of the crack, but pumped out straight away whe nthe footholds ran out on the traverse. Got it eventually after placing more gear in the short vertical crack and resting a couple more times - final move to the spike felt quite goey but I'll definitely get it properly next attempt. Didnt find hidden hold - no idea where it is?!? Finished straight up - will save 5 star finish for a clean ascent!

Very annoying. Climbed the right route this time but the cold got the better of my fingers and soon didnt know what I was pulling on. Got lost again! Used the top break instead of the lower break. Reversed and used the lower break. Got to just before the pinnacle and, in my tunnel vision, completely missed the MASSIVE jug that was staring me down on the right hand of the final groove. Reversed rested, warmed up hands, got back on it, eventually found the jug. Finished with difficulty up the final jamming crack.

Simon lead up to the traverse, where he had issues with a cam in a hand hold and decided to sit for a while before lowering off. I climbed up on Simon's gear then dogged my way accross and up to a nice seat under the final moves. After sitting there for a while getting hit with 1000km/h winds I decided to roll up my sleeves and do the final moves on the direct route before my belayer froze. All and All a top climb for a sunny day....
