Anvil Chorus*** VS 4c
[Deal Russell on Anvil Chorus , 2 kb]60m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A string of superb and intense pitches make up for the rather wandering line. High in the grade. Start at a thin line of weakness in the wall just right of the low-angled corner groove.
1) 4b, 10m. Climb the wall and thin cracks directly to a tricky exit onto a large belay ledge next to a thorny bush.
2) 4b, 12m. Take a good crack in a corner to a roof at its top and pull around this on the right to another good belay ledge.
3) 6m. Walk left along a narrow grassy ledge to a belay below a thin black seam, as for Venusburg.
4) 4c, 18m. Move up right to the base of a steep corner and climb this with difficulty to a horizontal break that can be followed rightwards across the wall to a belay on its edge.
5) 4b, 8m. Move up left to a break and climb the thin crack above to finish. © ROCKFAX

Alec lead P1 and 2 in one pitch. i then did the short P3 together with P4 in one pitch. Belly flopped like a seal onto the belay ledge at the end of P4. Almost got stuck like that too. Alec finished off the last pitch

daviesp2 - AltLd - 28/Aug/15 with Tris

Curly Rich - AltLd rpt - 28/Aug/15 with gmc

Brilliant route with a long, fierce layback crack. Led P1 and P2 in one go, Denise led the P3 traverse, led P4 and built a belay just after the awkward mantle, then got Denise to lead the final couple of meters to the top. Not a route for a new VS leader as it's high in the grade and you've got to have your head firmly screwed on for the crux pitch.

Jack Porteous - AltLd O/S - 30/Jul/15

Phileas Fauntleroy - AltLd O/S - 28/Jul/15 with Louise Kennedy

Lead P1 and P2 together. In my opinion the vertical crack on P3 is harder than any VS at Millstone, very strenuous. Tough for the grade and amazing climbing.

Lead P2&4. The crack pitch was a really nice and very sustained. Felt a bit stiff for VS but was nice none the less.
chrismadar - AltLd O/S - 14/Jun/15 with Kate Harborne

Lead pitches 1, 3 & 5. First proper VS leads, finding the last pitch tiring after the lay-back flake section in pitch 4. But all in all, a lot of fun.
kateharborne - AltLd O/S - 14/Jun/15 with Chris Madar

twill - Lead O/S - 06/Jun/15 with Nick Mitchell

lead main corner pitch but should have linked with the final arete (which is great climbed on its left rather than taking the blocky crack system right of the belay as per rockfax topo). Outstanding pitch with a tricky final move onto the stance.

Steve did the first 3 pitches as one, I did the crux pitch. The layback is strenuous but well protected, the crux move is the final mantleshelf at the end of the traverse, exposed but protectable with a small cam.

I lead P1+2+3, and Dave did P4+5 combined (namely 2 pitches in total). In P2, I climbed the groove right of the route proper (as Dave pointed out later) by mistake (nb. it is The Wasteland, HVS 5b, I found later)... That is where I fell off in leading Andres in trainers previous year. I found it to be desperate 5b movers followed by 5a/4c moves - no wonder I couldn't do it in big boots.

Stroppy - AltLd O/S - 27/Oct/12 with Oli Brend

Lead P2 and P3 (walk), slightly disjointed start, but its all about pitch 4/5. Luckily had all gear taken out by Carina so sailed up layback crack, only to whale madly at end of traverse. Would say harder then 4c for this pitch, but gear aplenty.
Matt Smith - AltLd O/S - 27/Oct/12 with Carina Ruff, Joe Premier

Ros lead pitch 1 and 2 combined and myself 4 and 5 combined. One of my favourite climbs at Bosigran with an out there feeling on the traverse. Airy delicate climbing on the top pitch made this feel very exciting.
dprctr - AltLd O/S - 07/Apr/12 with Roslyn McKendry

I led the first pitch and was very pleased- my first VS after a 1 year break from climbing. There were a couple of moves where I felt worried about slipping / falling but got past them and felt very satisfied- a success! Tom led the rest of the route. The 4th pitch was a monster! The hardest VS I've ever climbed and felt much more like a HVS! A very strenuous and scary layback all the way up to a footless, hard mantle at the start of the 5th pitch. Very hard!

Lead pitches 2+4. The fourth pitch is *not* hard, the third is (Toby fell off the traverse!). Awesome climb and better than little brown jug imo.

Fell while trying to mantle to the belay at the end of the third pitch. Very pumped from laybacking the corner. Fall came to a halt half way down the layback corner even though i had plenty of gear in

Fine route, finally got round to doing it! Pitch three is superb, best to do a combination of layaways and jams. Masses of good gear and time to put it in. Can't understand its reputation for serious accidents. Found the "interesting mantleshelf" to be the crux.
