Awesome route! A bit scary low down, reachy move wasn't too bad! Happy to have ticked this!

Brilliant lead on a tough route! Very stretchy and sketchy holds. Crux has solid holds but need to stretch for it

Fantastic start which needed a delicate balanced left move across to the long narrow ledge. Moved up to the crux & had left two fingers on crack (mistake) reached up to the higher ledge & failed. Should have had right hand in crack. Made it after the fall and then had to rush as the rain was coming! Ended the day with lunch in the cave & a trip to 'outside' and then trip home to take in views of other routes on limestone! 17/Aug/17 2nd O/S

pleasant as a second, I imagine the step out and up from the flake being a very committing move on lead, but some good protection below helps - one to lead in the future

A really great climb that feels quite exposed in the mid-section. The big move is technically easy but is bold. Can be done quickly and the reach isn't that far.

According to rockfax there is a large reach near the top and an easy finish. I found the crux to be the mantle just after the first flake, and that the top section was still worth thinking about.

My first HVS on grit, it was pretty hard and definitely a headgame on lead. The moves from initial starting flake felt quite comitting, and then leaving the foot ledge under the roof is intimidating. It took me a few tries to get the bottle to commit, though once I did the crux move felt pretty easy. Fantastic route!

Very reachy, twice! Caution for shorter climber. 1 move 5b IMO! I'm 6ft. Backed off crux, not confident in last cam, although lower down had 2 nuts + cam! Would still deck on stretch. Later saw lass on 1 rope & 1 nut below crux! Risky, as she pulled for crux, nut came out, mid move, risky to reverse. Clearly realising ground fall with NO rope stretch, she calmly placed cam & finished cool. Phew! Risky strategy but clearly strong & experienced. She exclaimed, as hard as a recent E2.

I got off route and took a couple of swinging falls from the arete after the hand traverse and pocket. I found this climb pretty difficult as I'm not that tall and it was covered in water; It felt more difficult that E1 in these conditions! Watch out for the runout on the right to left traverse near the start

andyjirvin 30/Oct/11 Lead O/S

Excellent climbing, some varied moves. Gear placements are well-worn, not inspiring in confidence really, though there is just enough to protect the tricky moves. Does feel quite exposed so probably top-end HVS, even though the moves themselves aren't too hard or sustained, and fairly easy to read. Double ropes would have been better. Maybe some offsets or more of a variety of smaller wires for the flakes, plus some smaller cams (size 1 or 0.5?). Still, overall a great experience, just the right amount of fear combined with good climbing and the darkness coming in quickly. Shame Rachael and Rich didn't get to second.

Absolute quality all the way and I'd be hard pushed to find a better HVS on Gritstone. Lovely technical climbing without being too desperate or pumpy. The moves preceding the ledge was at the limit of my reach but the climbing is much easier after that. Anyone much below 5ft 8in may struggle. Good idea to use two ropes. Check this link for beta:

Great climb, scary traverce where i had to stand up with almost nothing for my hands. Then had to pop for the next break as i'm short, go the nut in that later on fell out. Had to rest on a yelloy cam before that sidepull flake and reach for the nest mantle shelf where i wailed it. Note to self- must extend as ther was lots of drag in the rope.

One of the best routes I've done on grit so far. I found the moves solid 5a and I'm 5'7. However placing gear below the crux is hard if you're short so I elected to push on without making it a bit more like E1. I watched a taller climber easily placing cams under the mantle from the ledge below just after we finished. I thought the extra boldness in my ascent added more to fun to the climb :)

Pretty simple really. Technical crux is probably the start though before you know it you're at the ledge. Friend protects the 'scary' flake which isn't scary, only to come to a mantelshelf which looked hard but wasn't... the quicker you do this one, the easier it is.

Atlast! This has been on my wishlist for a long time and I've never been able to commit to the first few moves as they are practically unprotected and I didn't remember them being very easy, I remembered correctly, took me a few attempts to figure out what exactly I should do to reach the ledge, then couldnt get a decent nut in the crack. The moves out right were easyish with smearing, and the reach was a lot shorter than I remembered! Almost threw up there and turned out to make it easily with a reach! Brilliant route, worth the wait!

Superb - testing step left to leave the dinosaur's back. The broken flake was slightly less of a good hold than I had hoped, but good pads for the feet allowed me to reach up for the the ledge.

Third or forth time I tried this one! Made it up to mantleshelf okay.. But was wearing an Kagoul (cheap one). My arms kept sliding back inside the sleeves and I could't stay on!! I slide off onto the last bit of gear.. Took off the Kagoul and did mantleshelf okay and finished route!! Sigh!! ;-)
