Rockfax Description
From the chock move right onto the arete, swing round the corner (4b, but harder for the short who will have to dangle), then teeter out right and finish up the well-positioned slab. Nice. © Rockfax

I quite enjoyed the awkward start - 'traditional Severe' (compare with 'traditional mountain VDiff' and it makes sense :P). While it's only Severe in the BMC guide, for me (5' 7" so average) it has to be HS because being 5/6m up with no (meaningful) gear, leaning around a corner to put in an OK but not bomber big cam and that being the only gear as you swing out onto the traverse sounds too bold to be S. Once you are on the traverse you can lace it with gear but the initial moves are just not protected enough (or at all, initially).

The chimney is a bruising start! Took a number of attempts and much grunting before finding a way up it (thanks to a passer-by's beta). After that, the move onto the wall is a bit delicate if you're short but the hand traverse across the break is great fun.

Best of the three Classic Rock routes, I reckon. The start is brutally brilliant and took a good fie or six goes, including a scrapey slither down onto the sling I'd lassoed around the block. The traverse is sensational and the final slab has holds that are 'just' enough. Best climbing experience that I've had in ages. Seconded it myself as Rose didn't fancy the traverse, having aided the start, and Lucy was too busy giggling at our efforts and taking photos! Second ever lead fall.

Awesome route. The starting crack is very much a struggle but not difficult. The step out around the arette is the scariest move but is potectable with a large cam in the high horizontal crack. Made easier for me as im tall and could rack the horizontal crack with my feet on the big ledge. Would be harder for the shorter but the edge on the horizontal crack is very positive and the traverse can be protected with more cams. Then just a slab to the top.

Great climb the start is really tricky for a short stumpy fella like myself, but some foot jamming and a bit of grunt gets you over the boulder. The traverse across is much easier than we thought it would be and after the tricky start the rest of the climb is quite pleasant I was laughing most of the way up because I really thought it would be a struggle.

The start looks hard and it is. Not technical, just hard work! Not been as tall as Steve I had to traverse under the roof on a small ledge rather than the big one, but this was actually easy (once I stopped panicing!) as the hand holds are so good. Nice moves up the slab at the end with that little bit of run out for the leader.

Neil Pacey 27/Sep/08 2nd O/S

Fantastic climb with a hard, thrutchy move to get off the ground, HS 4b would be fair.

Skinny Rat 21/Sep/08 2nd O/S

Bridged the start up to the chock. Being tall made the move onto the traverse easy (despite g/f's heckling from below). Finishing up the positive, if slopey holds above the roof was the best part of the route for me.

Rating this VS is silly. It should still be VD, but with the realisation that you can either get off the ground or you can't. I'm happy to admit it was a VD I found almost impossible to begin. It took me over an hour to get off the ground, hence the alt leads. Once you've got 20cm off the ground the rest of the climb is easy. Hand traverse is fine, I also did not have feet dangling (5'6"). Being slim and tall will make the start dead easy. It's not one for my fat arse.

Took quite a few attempts to get past the chockstone. Eventually jammed my right foot at the back of the crack and squirmed upwards. Placed gear on the left side of the chimney, there didn't seem to be any on the right side. Feet were dangling on the traverse, which seems a little strange, as my partner says her's weren't, and she's shorter than me. Not sure what was going on there...

JCookie 25/Aug/08 2nd

Needed a bunk-up to get on the route then a totally ugly squirm to beach onto the chockstone. Really enjoyed the hand traverse, though I don't agree with Rockfax, I'm 5'5" and there was no dangling or teetering going on.

Fell off just as I started the traverse and swung all the way across... :P Was a bit shaken, but finished the rest of the climb. Would like to try it again one day when I'm a better climber.

Slightly worrying start to the traverse, but lovely holds all the way. Definitely a "traditional" start though.

Liam M ?/Nov/06 Lead O/S

Ended up aiding first crack just to get off ground, and then stood there for ages ages before finally committing to swinging around onto traverse.

Excellent Climb, but a bugger of a start up to the chock stone. Right foot jamat the back of the chimney and then a struggle (foot and back for me) to reach the chockstone. Thereafter pretty clean sailing.
