Rockfax Description
Yet another superb Peak E4. Pitch 1 has the technical well-protected crux, but pitch two provides the real challenge.
1) 6a, 22m. Easy climbing leads into the corner which is followed with increasing difficulty. Returning from a slight detour onto the left wall provides the crux shortly before the break is reached. Lash yourself in.
2) 5c, 18m. Pull over the roof to gain the flake and follow it strenuously on good holds, pausing on occasion to frantically stuff in gear. Save some courage for the final moves off the flake. Move left to follow Mortlock's to finish. © Rockfax

FA. S.Bancroft, J.Allen 15.4.76. Their ascent was protected by several old pegs which makes it even more curious as to why they graded it E6. This grade put off repeats for years. 15/Apr/1976

Lead both pitches in one. Surprised to see people found the first part easy. I found it trickier than the top pitch.

A dusty classic, but what a classic. Was originally going to do this as a single pitch, but ran out of draws so ended up belayed. Glad I did too, as the rope drag would have been awful.

Misha 14/May/17 Lead rpt

P1 only after retreating off the Dream Mile. Top section dry but dirty, which made it a bit more exciting. Went out left to the flake (same as last time) and back up right on side pulls. Topo suggests going straight up but that was really dirty and might be a mistake in the topo anyway.

Great to get this done clean after resting on p2 years ago. Greg led p1 and I led p2. Not too bad when you get on with it!

I lead first pitch. Dirty and dusty but brilliant sequency techy climbing - probably E3 6a. Took a careless slip low down before crux so lowered to the easy ramp at start and started again. Dave lead top pitch (E4).

Theo Moore - UKC and UKH 31/Jul/16 Lead O/S

Just p1. Keen for the second pitch now. Dirty but good and with good protection

Haaaaard! New this was going to be tough watching Misha on it. Mishas straight up sequence was tough on the first pitch - multiple attempts. Absolutely fried by the time i got onto the top pitch which was very physical - right to the top! Needed a lie down after this - phew.
