Rockfax Description
A direct on Congo Corner with good rests between the hard moves and low in the grade. Climb Congo Corner to where it heads off left. Then go through the bulges, on creaky flakes, to where a swing left allows you to join Congo Corner again just below its upper crux. Finish up this. © Rockfax

Fell off the first move twice, and annoyingly didn't come back down the 2 meters to do the ground up ascent. Rest of the route went clean, but gross green moisture and general drippiness meant I climbed it like a lumbering oaf.

foobar123 12/Nov/17 Lead dnf

I'm going to blame this on being freezing cold. Pulling over the flakes was fine, but reaching up onto the ledge to rejoin Congo Corner was just too much so I took my third fall of the day. Tried again to make it 4, then gave up and went for Congo Corner instead. Really killed my psyche for the day. The moves were really cool though, so I'll definitely be back on a warmer day!

Having failed to second this on one of my first trip to stanage about 2 years ago it was great to get this on lead. I have seconded it before but it felt pretty fun on lead great gear and good holds my foot slipped as I moved across and I had an accidental cutloose moment luckily I had enough strength right myself and pulll through. Harder than flying buttress direct. Great route pumpy fun exciting and overall great climbing.

Was trying to save my energy for Tippler direct and was meant to be James lead but he couldn't figure out the crux and got very pumped so in the end he came down and I led the route (mostly on his gear) A nice route with the crux being not quite where you would expect it to be.

Superb. Got bomber gear in the vertical crack and then went for it. Fewer moves than I expected got me to the big reach. Thought I might have to pull up on the rounded sloping edge but then found the square cut hold and job done! Thought it was HVS and similar in difficulty and nature to The Sloth.

Great fun. Feels quite wild going up through the flakes (a few have evidently snapped off), but the gear's pretty good and the moves turn out not to be too hard. Still felt to me liked it deserves an E1, though. If you want to get gear in before doing the mantle, or just after the mantle, you need to have a big cam or two - if you don't I didn't), its really pretty bold.

Had just led Congo Corner so the first crack felt familiar, if not harder for some reason! Then after that, some brilliant roof moves. Would have been worried leading it, gear is bomber if you place it right though. Swing out and left whilst heelhooking the break all the way along, then a big reach up and finish up congo corner. Really nice, maybe one day....

A classic route- surely one of the best on Stanage - varied, great postion and keeps you interested all the way. Shame the first couple of moves are getting a bit polished.
