You can protect crux with very good cam placement. I don't understand why every guidebook advices a wire. Perhaps, the bottom of the hole is now eroded to the shape of the cam ... may stir up grade debate about this route.

Chickened out and topped out left off route 2 moves from the top to no pockets for feet but a small crack gave assurance for hands. Long discussion with partner as whether I'd touch the ground from a fall. Also discussion on setting belay left of finish to protect second from a swing.

Lead the crux and onto the slab fine with no issues. Guess I was expecting more obvious features on the slab to pad up. Having only a couple of outings on grit, not really trusting smears fully, made a few nervous moves up the slab then decided Nope. Reversed the moves off the slab onto the nice stance . Paul tied off the rope to a tree then went round to the top and chucked down a rope. Then did the top, easily. ...Next time!

Beware the short. The rockover was just too far. Needed an intermediate move by smearing on hope and optimism on a dimple a bit closer/lower than the ledge. Somehow didn't fall off! Stepped through with my left heel and stood up. Top slab was a breeze after I realised my rock shoes were imbued with grippy magic!

Scary but absolutely interesting climb. I would not dare to lead it as the second half did not have any gear. But that was compensated with a slab with small dimples and an amazing friction, which kind of lets you just walk up the wall.

Having looked at it a few times, glad to have done it. Not particularly difficult but keeps you on your toes. The crux move takes some thinking about but you're not far off the gear at that point. The upper section isn't particularly difficult, just well above the gear: so fairly comparable to sunset slab, which has no protection full stop but no real crux move. A head route.

Sink41 05/May/13 Lead rpt

For the final piece of gear before crux, initially I tried placing a purple DMM size 3.0 4cu. Placement didn't look completely terrible, but I wasn't able to get it very far in and it was getting close to over-cammed. I gave it a few hard tugs and it didn't move. Not completely satisfied I slightly readjusted it gave it another tug and it popped right out. In the end at the suggestion of my belayer I down climbed and retrieved my yellow DMM size 2.5 4cu which I had used as my first piece of gear, this went in deeper and looked bomb proof. Rest of the climb went fine, brilliant route. About half an hour later after having done another route I walked past the bottom of the route again, there was a group surrounding a man lying on a bouldering mat with scrapes and blood all over his legs. I asked if he was OK, he had apparently rested on the rope near the crux and all (!?) of his gear had ripped out. Though in good cheer he had hurt his foot and they were waiting for mountain rescue. Was very glad I had changed cams instead of staying with the marginal one.

Did this on TR 3 years ago, felt more like onsite then a repeat ascent . Pleased I managed it okay without any problems. The crux felt straightforward with good gear although needed to give myself a good talking to on the top slab. Made sure that I stuck to right and didn't escape off to the left. Although technically it's easy climbing, I felt I could easily pop off it at one point. I've led quite a few HVS's in the past year (and a small handful of E1) and personally feel that this *just* warrants E1. Grade aside - I really enjoyed it....

Solo after rain, though it was dry, it wasn't. Top slab was scary as hell-like an ice rink. If there had been anyone else there I would've asked for a rope, sadly there wasn't so I had to go for it. Got lucky this time. As for the grade, in the dry it's HVS 5a- Solid 5a crux by protection, yes the top is run out but so are some VDiffs, it's just easy climbing.

Easy moves but still felt E1, even though climbed harder HVS in last few days. Just a mind game due to run out and knowledge that any gear in that pocket isn't really that bomber... If you don't worry about falling and don't understand placing your gear, well, ignorance is bliss I suppose and it probably won't feel scary! Very happy to have led and now never have to do so again!

Lead it half way and had to down climb it because i got scared. Really really balancy. Got a poor cam in that later fell out. A nut low down that wasn't brilliant. Didn't realise that you can get a bommer small nut in in the deep juggy hold up and left. the top was the scariest bit as had no actual holds - you just have to stem up and up on nothing really.

Fell off the crux trying to do rockover, got back on, did it by delicate steps across to rockover ledge, stepped onto slab, a moment's pause realising this is where the route gets serious, padded to the top - lovely. Fantastic! Another off my wish list.

tompilgrem 25/Oct/10 Lead O/S

First E1, yes! Found the moves fairly easy for 5a but i was climbing well and slabs are my strength so probs is 5a. however was definately harder mentally than all the HVS's ive done so would saay e1, but definately very soft. awesome route none the less, sure it will become part of the regular froggatt circuit! :)

bit of an epic! bottled first lead attempt , so tried move on a top rope, then did second lead attempt, rocked over decisively and to my great surprise found myself bouncing some metres below. (conclusion: size 1.75 friend provides bomber gear). lowered to ground, started again and did it cleanly this time.

Having just soloed it, led it to put a rope up for the others. The rock over was harder with the extra weight of a rack but setting off on the upper slab was easier with the peace of mind of some bomber pro in the pocket.
