Rockfax Description
The ubiquitous and excellent traverse (Hard Rock - say no more) which crosses the buttress. Positions throughout are excellent, and there is a lot of great climbing, but despite the passage of many, there is still some suspect rock.
1) 5b, 40m. Climb Aurora (possible belay on the ledge) and follow its second pitch before striking out left across the airy wall to the Our Father cave stance. It is also possible to belay at the start of the traverse, if moral support is needed.
2) 5a, 15m. Traverse left across the black wall (crumbly, but in balance) to a small ledge on Windhover, just around the arete.
3) 5c, 15m. Traverse left again along the break, and then swing under the roof to join The Flakes and follow it past the tricky section to a hanging belay.
4) 5c, 35m. Traverse left to cross Kellogg, then left again across the bay above Kink. Follow the break leftwards across the wall to Inquisitor, then climb this to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: I think E1 5c and 2 stars is about right, there is very little loose rock and only on the 5a pitch, its great in both directions and climbable in just 3 pitches on a single rope which makes it run better.

Frank the Husky 2 Jul - An excellent and long awaited experience. The present RF pitch descriptions are ridiculous - there's no way you'd do most of Aurora then the 5b traverse to the Our Father cave in one pitch. You would also not do the whole of the crux pitch to the end in one, which is nonsensical. We started via the lovely Tiger Trot, Climbed as far as the start of the traverse. Did the whole of the Scoop Wall traverse from arete to arete in one pitch which was absolutely fine and made sense. The current RF P2 description isn't complete:- at Scoop Wall, downclimb a few feet to get to a lower traverse line. The crux pitch (pitch 4 in the current RF description) is best done by traversing round the corner and into Kellog at the same level as the peg with all the tat on. Trying to downclimb at the peg (which I did thinking that was what you had to do) deposited me in some very difficult territory that was definitely off route. Belayed at Kink, and then did the final traverse and link into Inquisitor to finish.

Alex Hyde 28 Jun AltLd Led the first and third pitch. Forgot how mega/spicy the first pitch was, crazy fun/ a bit sketchy on the loose crumble. Went a bit too far on the third pitch (onto the forth), went way too low on the second crux and took a bit of a fall but made it round to an a belay. Wicked outing, takes a bit of time to get done!

First pitch is slightly terrifying - steady climbing but questionable gear and rock. Once you're on the traverse its just dreamy plodding the whole way and the crux pitch feels so exposed! Don't be put off by the choss, all in all very worthwhile.

shaunhumphreys 30 Apr, 2018 AltLd dnf Saw Duncan's comment about sacking it off after starting at 6:45 and team slow thought we might be up to the challenge starting at a similar time! Lobbed off on the chossy HVS after a hold exploded, really didn't want to fall on much of the gear so as soon as I felt something in my hand I employed the death grip turned out it was the belay end of the rope and melted my hand a bit, promptly ran to the conveniently placed river to stop the burning and sacked it off!

Greg Cunningham 20 Jul, 2017 AltLd O/S Great evening out with Ed followed by a couple of pints in the Moon. I went slightly off-route on the Aurora approach pitch climbing a crack to the left just before the traverse - through an overhang at around E2. A bit loose but well protected - Ed pulled a loose block-off and went flying on second. The whole route has dubious rock but this adds to the atmosphere - felt like we were in the Dolomites!

Misha 9 Aug, 2014 AltLd O/S Great positions all the way with good climbing make for a real classic. Ed led the first pitch up Aurora, belaying on the arête as traversing from there would have caused horrendous rope drag. Would probably be ok if going straight up the HVS on the arête but Aurora follows a corner a few metres to the right. I led through to the small airy stance on the Windhover arête. A good long pitch with some tricky moves to get to the Our Father cave, then easy but still enjoyable. Led the next two pitches as well (might just about go in one on 60m ropes). P3 is quite short and features what you think is the crux (drop down on jugs into a corner) which is a followed by the actual crux (short traverse across a wall into the next stance). Great belay with space below your feet, cams 1 and 2 useful (the in situ lower off is well dodgy - two rusty pegs). The last pitch is quite long and, similarly to the previous pitch, there is a section where you have to drop down and move round an arête and into a corner but this time it's harder and it's the actual crux. After that it's a steady and enjoyable traverse, followed by an easy groove. Four pitches - proper multi pitch! Great fun. No one else on the buttress - just as well!
