Rockfax Description
Climb the thin crack just right of the arete to reach the leaning wall and a horizontal slot. Good cams here protect the bewildering moves to jugs (hint - it is all about what you do with your legs). Make a prompt exit to easy ground. Almost E1, the route is one of the most frigged in the Peak and sadly the runner placements are suffering because of this. © Rockfax

βeta: Hmmmm... Hard 5c move with perfect gear, above a slightly interesting start, and followed by nothing at all. Onsight, HVS sounds about right, but if there was another 2m of decent climbing either before or after the crux, it'd probably be E1. Definitely much harder than Ratline, but the gear's so much better! I'd still give Rat E1 and this HVS.

βeta: A hard climb to onsite - it takes a while to work out the sequence. It doesn't make sense that Ratline is E1 and this is HVS. Ratline is technically easier, less sustained/strenuous and has better gear. I say Ratine=HVS, Orpheus Wall=E1 ;)

Then later after oscars ascent while it was still cloudy and cool I lead it with his pre-placed gear. I dont if this detracts from the route as the gear is pretty easy to place once you know what it is but its all about that move. Really fun move perfectly safe. onsighting it would be hard. Surprisingly pumpy. I'd definitely do it again placing the gear if I came back. Cool move.

Irn Bruce 22 Aug, 2009 Lead dog Very pumped once I got to the crux so fell off. On second attempt, and despite recommendation to get my knee into the large crack, I used the finger crack to edge my right leg up and snatch for the hold - made it, but only just! Saw someone put the right knee in afterwards though and made the reach looked easy - maybe it is only HVS then!
