Rockfax Description
One of gritstone's greatest classics which is sadly showing its age. Start up the polished central crack before shuffling right to the base of the flake. Layback the broken nose to reach easier though sustained climbing and a rest below the final roof. The belly-flop direct finish is best, though a sneaky traverse left is an easier option. A high stepping direct start is a polished f6A and is out of keeping with the rest of the climb. © Rockfax

Fell off once at the start, moving up to the break. Great route; cold fingers and lack of a warm-up meant I wound up pretty pumped by the top, and the topout was a bit inelegant!

Didn't have the strength / endurance to get the left leg over.. so took a nice fall. Really pleased with the rest of the climb though, climbed well (for me),. One to revisit next year!

Absolute pump fest. Slipped off the starting hold on my first go but quickly raced up the glassy starting crack(crux?) to get to the proper starting ledge. Intimidated but excited I went for it. Such massive holds and amazing gear but there are no good feet. The crux for me was placing the gear the climbing was pretty straightforward just pulling to place the gear was really pumpy. Cams definitely saved my neck as I placed a nut near the end and this almost had me off. With ever building pump I launched over the top for the classic belly flop finish. I was close to sliding off but managed to roll up hill. The pumpiest route I've ever lead awesome line such a classic and really straightforward but great climbing. Mega route.

First route of the day! Had my mind set on it and went for it! I did a hilarious double fist jamming underneath the broken nose. Loved every moment on this climb. My first 'proper' hvs so I was elated on top. Before I started I deliberately didn't check the guidebook or ukc so just did what's natural to me at the end to move left. Must come back to do the belly flop finish!

Didn't learn my lesson from Neb Buttress two days before and got on a pumpy HVS at the end of the day. Got slightly scared when my first hex fell out and then even Luke said that I should put more gear in. Was super pumped at the top and still decided to try the mantle but ran out of puff. If I'd have done the left hand finish I reckon I'd have done it! Super nice though and will definitely be back.

Gutted to have not got the onsight. Got all the way to the last crack, and kept trying to go direct up it and over. Eventually pumped out and sat on the gear. Then realized I was meant to traverse right to a slopy ledge, and finish much more easily (which I did after my rest, although the mantel was grim). If only I'd spent the time doing the proper route-reading for the climb I'm sure I would've done it. ;(

Wow! Feels fairly mild to start with, but the second half feels increasingly steep! Not so sure about the rest at the top break - it is quite a poor one.

Couldnt get the move right to start the laybacks before. Found an awesome fist jam under the flake this time round. Pretty intense climb, no real rests. Some good holds, some pretty sloped. Found the gear hard to place towards the top as getting in position to look behind the flakes is tricky so hard to judge the size of cam to choose. The top-out is traumatising... Glad to have done it but I don't think I'll go back!

Did the proper finish by moving left. Apparently a stupid eliminate exists where you go up direct by way of a belly-flop. Not sure why anybody would want to do this.

Great climbing. Rompted up as far as the top, got 2 cams in and sort of rested using the great handjam. Had a (pretty quick) look at the direct finish, but it seemed for me to be. . . right unconquerable, tried to go left but was knackered by then so had to come back and rest on the cams again. Then managed to scuttle away to the left. Will do it clean next year.....

What a fantastic route. Much easier than I was expecting as I wasn't sure I'd get up it after seeing several people drop off it. On a rope you are able to utilise the amazing resting jams behind the flake before the move up to the top out. Bizarrely no bellyflop for me, just walked up it and had to check with everyone I'd gone the right way but think it is because my hands weren't tired I was able to work my feet up. Would like to have another go at it before committing to the lead.

charley 31/Aug/13 Lead O/S

Well onsite as possible, it's been on my list for years and have watched a few attempts. Got pretty pumped near the top, was pleased to get it clean. Was expecting the topout to be worse then it is although it isn't a pushover when you're so pumped you can't close your hands.

An absolute battle. I onsighted 'Left' a few months ago but didn't get to try this as it started raining. Stupidly jumped on this as first climb of the day with no warm-up and in thick fog (could barely see the top from the ground). Foot slipped and popped off at about mid-height, lowered off, pulled the rope through and jumped straight back on. Got pumped out of my mind and had to rest on the gear just below the final push over the top. At least I did the belly-flop finish though (which was HARD [and damp]).

Foot slipped on layback, but held on. Got my hand on the very top to find a distressing lack of holds (after a surprisingly pumpy climb), down climbed to last bit of gear and rested on it. Just barely managed to drag myself over the top without over balancing.

Amazing climb!! All the gear is good, all the moves are there, just very pumpy 2nd to last move. Got to the last move, poked my head above the top and to my horror found there was nothing to hold, a couple of attempts to top out and I peeled off. Next time I'll have it in the bag!

The poor flake is looking very tatty compared to when I seconded this 20 years ago. It seems a lot easier leading than it was seconding - probably because you feel more in control of time as a leader and take that time to pause, place gear and shake out. The topout was fine once I found a couple of crimps.

WOW! I was so pumped near the the top that I ran it out in hope of a good jam to get some gear in. I swear I thought I was gonna die (especially when my foot slipped) Having got to the final overhang I didn't even have strength to get any of the right sized gear on the R side of my harness and desperatlty wedged in a cam that was about 2 size too big before the stylish belly flop finish.

Pumpier than I imagined. To call the 'rest' a rest is a bit optimistic. An exercise in laybacking, dont hang around contemplating the moves. And you need at least quarter of a tank for the top out. Think I'll leave The Rasp till later in the season.

So I knew the route had some kind of reputation, and had heard about the "belly-flop" finish... But was only expecting it to be a little inelegant, rather than actually spitting me off! Rest of the route was great, and I got back on and finished the thing - damn shame not to get it clean though...

A fun start silly start followed by a beautiful vertical flake type crack. Grip with hands and wide footholds. Pumped out the arms again as I wasn't doing enough work with feet, but felt good. Did sit on the rope to remove (another) stuck cam, but I'm still calling in O/S because thats how it felt. That said, Dans 'labelling' of the holds with copious chalk did help...
