Rockfax Description
The right-hand side of the slab is delicate to a finish at a perched block. Low in the grade though protection is poor on the lower crucial section - there have been a few nasty falls here. © Rockfax

First E1 of 2012! Needed to remind myself that I could lead bold routes. Looked at the line and felt confident I could do it. Jim helped push me on. Good job he lent me his Aliens and RPs. Lots of fiddly small okish gear give psychological boost at the start, then a couple of bomber cams nearer the top. Felt quite a rush/relief topping out! This route actually has some very nice moves. Recommended.

Reaver2k 06/Aug/09 Lead O/S

A slightly worrying climb, not to mention the complete silence going on whilst Mike led The Brush Off, protection is pretty poor until after some tricky moves. The traverse out right is easy which I was a bit worried about, but then had to make a step up probably 6/7m above the deck with a two lobes of a cam in a slightly flaring crack (yep it would have pulled...) luckily after that move, you get some bomber cams for the next few crucial moves. Really enjoyed this and seem to getting a few more E1 ticks now!

A lovely climb with a few dubious looking pieces of protection. I think this could turn out to be my first E1 lead next time I go to Rivelin. Wouldn't count as a proper "on-sight" though, obviously.

first E1 of the year and started drizzling as I set out... managed to sneak bits of gear in most of the way, but glad to arrive at the top

Last route of the day. First grit E1. Pleased because its a type of route I normally suck at.

Took a bad fall. No memory of incident so don't really know what happened. It was a dampish day - maybe slipped? Anyway, gear ripped and hit deck from high up. Lost consciousness for several minutes, but luckily this was a helmet wearing day. All 12 ribs on right broken, punctured lung. Apparently, breaking rib no. 1 carries 50% mortality rate. Might have died at crag if Edale MRT doctors hadn't performed emergency needle decompression. Thank you Medical Officer Dr Steve Rowe, star of 'Helicopter Heroes!' 3 Weeks in NGH Sheffield, including a surprisingly enjoyable Xmas Day. Rib cage rebuilt with titanium by Mr John Edwards, an innovative young surgeon. Left with low level chronic pain, minor nerve damage. Maybe slight personality change (generally calmer, weirdly). Small price to pay. Lucky man. God bless the volunteer ethic and the NHS.

seconded alex on this. then had a look at brush off. got a decent size 6 rock in the flake and got up to the break - decentish size 1 friend in here but wasn't convinced. wasn't cool enough so wisely traversed the seam/break into fringe benefit and up from there. new route?! imagine other people have done the same. E2 5c i reckon.

steve wanted to do 'the 'it looks like a ruler durr!' brush off. mean while 3 competent climbers and a young whippersnapper were doing the rounds on 'fringe benefit'. after careful deliberation, 3 cups of sugar water with a hint of coffee, and several pate sangers, we decide the best course of action would be for me to tonk the hell outta fringe benefit, steve seconds it to get a feel the the face and then does brush off. after a few strikes off the green wellington we got on with the plan. all was going well until stage three when pansy ramsden escaped from the brush off with not a shred of dignity left. a memorable set of events. oh yeah routes not bad 3 bits of gear bomber half cam. nice moves.

Quite straight forward E1 stuff. Any sense of achievement got quickly overshadowed by Fiends onsight solo of The Brush Off next door, which was a privelage to watch. Well done that man!

Bouldered the first few moves and then found it wasn't so easy to get back down again, so Jono lobbed the ropes and gear up to me so that I could carry on and complete it.
