20m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine historic HVS which features two contrasting pitches, a mid-height stance and a belay on a proper summit.
1) 5a, 10m. The tricky, slanting, jamming crack, and a short traverse, lead to a small stance on the arete (awkward belays).
2) 5a, 10m. Step right, climb the wall (gear in the vertical crack) then move left (there is bizarre no-hands rest here) then mantelshelf to the easy upper slab. Enjoy the summit experience then abseil from the ring-bolt. © Rockfax

Lead as a warm up in a oner to acquire some crag swag, my second wanted to save herself for her own route so I abbed to retrieve my gear, prussiked back up to the top, disassembled my ab and threw my ropes down.... a chain of 5 slings later I hauled my ropes back up to abb off the bolt.

Lead as 1 pitch, which works fine with care, although I put in so much gear on the first, I was considering splitting it just to get the pieces I needed back. Crack went pretty smoothly, though I felt as if I would barn door off it in the middle. Was feeling the fatigue through the traverse, however, and was glad to make it to the ledge. Utilised the knee bar for a rest before an awkward reorientation for the last hard move, which I couldn't protect as well as I'd have liked due to aforementioned absence of gear. Wasn't going to retreat from that high though, so just got on with it.

Yes another amazing froggatt classic done. Freddie wanted to do the first pitch so happily I let him he crushed it and 'quickly' set up an anchor. A very pumpy first pitch especially retrieving the gear. The real crux was swapping leads at the belay 'ledge' which involved face to face thrutching. I lead the second pitch which takes a little bit of thinking to work out but its really good once you figure out the holds are slightly eschew. Great route great to do a mini summit. Glorious sunshine great to climb with freddie again. Best route of what was mainly an amazing day despite the conditions when we arrived and Jacpbs slight mishap.

Found the traverse ok and had extend the gear off the belay thread as I was attempting it in one. Tried to go up too far right (wrong I now know) and didn't couldn't see anywhere to put gear.

terrible choice for a warm-up. I really need to stop doing this to myself! I led P1, Caelan led p2. I got to the top of the crack pitch and was too pumped to get onto the squished up rest before traversing to the belay. Hand went a bit blue from being jammed in so long which was a bit grim, then had to rest on gear. Gutted as it was a piece of cake after the rest! Belay feels really sketchy. P2 is a lot easier in my opinion, though with a somewhat bold move getting up the overlap. Fantastic climb, coming back to get P1 clean!

After faffing with a cam at the crux had to down-climb for a rest. Not sure I did crux in the best way but it worked. Once you reach the ledge to mantle onto it is straightforward.

Its worth noting that retrieving your gear from the first pitch is tricky if you want to do it from above, i.e. abseil. 2 ascents of Chapman's Crack is the easiest way, 1 to set up the abseil and get the gear from the first pitch, and another to retrieve the abseil kit. The iron mongery is closest to the top of the shortest side of the pinnacle. What a palaver, I'll just have to get on and lead it properly next time.

I lead/dogged the first pitch. I managed to get through the first half of the crack ok, then I started to place too much gear and got really pumped. I found it hard to balance and commit on the top half of the crack. I took a small fall on the beginning of the traverse when I started to get pumped and was worried I was not going to be able to finish. Took ages with the mantle on the second pitch, but found it much easier (although seconding). One to try again in the future!

Planned on swinging leads with John but had a bit of a 'mare getting up to the traverse and lowered down for a rest. Tied back in and had a second go which was no better and resulted in more gear being placed at my highest point. Eventually lowered down cleaning all the below. John then led the first pith which Robby seconded to the last piece of gear which he couldn't get and was lowered off. John then pulled the ropes through and led the top pitch. I repeated for the third time the crack of the first pitch to clean the gear Robby couldn't get the. John abseiled off and cleaned the second pitch.

After having already done 7 routes I got pumped out on the first beastly, awkward (but brilliant!) crack so I threw in an extra belay making this a completely unnecessary but nonetheless fun 3 pitch route!

djones66 05/Aug/11 Lead O/S

Lead as one pitch. The crack is hard going for an HVS, but everything after that is much more pleasant - superb position on the top bit. Rope drag was a problem - if you want to do it as one pitch, strongly suggest use long slings to extend the gear at the ledge at the top of the initial crack. Ecellent route.

Didn't want to put my 2nd through the experience, nor did I fancy down-climbing a jamming crack, so backed off and got the gear. One to return to after I gain more hours losing skin on easier cracks, as I would love to do this clean! Spanked!

chrisrogers 26/Apr/11 2nd

Coldish day, seconded the route after doing a 15 mile training fell-run, so in poor style. Jimbles led & took stance at ledge, I tied on midway on the rope & followed to stance, Juimbles led on & finished, I then tried to follow but rope drag from me to Phil meant I had to sit on the rope at one point & haul some rope up to allow me to do the moves... When it came time to bring Phil up, the drag was so bad I abseiled down to remove the 2 pieces of remaining gear & Phill then did it as one long pitch. A multi-pitch & almost multi-day epic !!

Initially Kev was going to lead the whole thing in one pitch, but he went too far right at the beginning of the second pitch which would have created a lot of rope drag. The guide book says "step right climb the wall" and it literally is one step, should be possible in one pitch with two ropes and good rope work.

Got my ass well and truely kicked by attempting to lead the first pitch un-suprisingly. After a few attempts and failures at the initial move, I rammed my fist into a very painful hand jam and moved all the way up on this, pretty much with my fist by my foot, then a few more wobbley moves on awkward jams. Got past the sort of hole thing, pumped. Decided bugger it i'll go for it as I had good gear, moved up and started jamming along the slightly slanting bit on awkward jams. Got to a point where I needed to switch my jams, did it quickly - could see a juggy flake just above so went for it, and missed it. First fall in a while but not a particuarly spectacular one, gear at just below waist height. Shook out for a while, then had another attempt. Got to the top of the crack, and was really pumped again, had to rest, sat on gear for a little longer, went up again, decided the traverse looked hard. Went back down again, looked for the (non-existant) footholds and swung out across the traverse. A lot easier than it looks with a couple of decent jams. Crawled into the awkward hole to belay off and brought Tom up. Belayed in a very awkward position, sort of half hanging. Then followed Tom up, complete contrast, quite balancy. Had to just the crack and toe hook undeneigh the roof in order to keep in balance whilst reaching up and left. Traverse around left on sort of flat top which feels precarious, and then a high foot and over the top. Would have been very scary to lead probably better off getting my ass truely kicked by the first pitch... Great climb, not sure how many times it will take me to get that first pitch clean...

Nails first pitch, couldn't jam it so ended up laybacking it finishing absolutely knackered - glad Alan led it! Second pitch a walk by comparison, couple of tricky moves, mantle and stroll to the top.

unreal experience. 3.15 started unpacking gear, 7.15 packed last bit away. Have done nearly all VS routes on Froggatt now and hve never led a HVS, so thought no more hiding and it's well protected, lkets have a go. Well, I fell on my second piece in and proceeded on my next attack to crawl up, resting on gear and generally doggin it. At top of first crack I sat on the ledge and put in a nut, which was a bad idea as couldn't get it our and left my extractor at teh bottom. POumped to hell by now anyway. After a rest I had to downclimb a bit to do the traverse but put in a good friend. Reached belay without falling again- result and brough up my bro. Started on second bit and then got terrible crampin in hands and although got size 9 nut in I had to retreat and Dave led the rest blindingly well. I started up after him but my hands went into rigour mortis mode again and i had to be lowered. v. sad. Dave proceeded to do some very good abbing to recover gear, and then we had to go back around to the tree at the side of the first crack so he could retrieve the first nut on belay. Epic adventure, but was nice that it's so well protected that never felt in danger and although ob pumped and still ob not capable of HVS in general I really enjoyed it. No-one waiting so thankfully didn't seem to pee anyone off, so really just happy to have had a good scrap safely and go home with a story to tell. Need to get back to the gymn and strengthen my forearms I think. Might have another go one day.
