Rockfax Description
A great combination that takes in the delights of this wall which can be done in one long 55m pitch if you have 60m ropes. Start just to the right of Grim Wall Direct at another small crack behind a tree.
1) 5c, 35m. Move up a crack into a groove and onto a ledge. Move diagonally right to gain a small corner and step right onto the flake of Grim Wall. Make a tricky sequence of moves up the slab rightwards to gain a break. Move up and right across the slab and continue across to the Shadrach pinnacle.
2) 5c, 20m. Move back left and climb up to a wide crack in the final roof and head up this to the top. © Rockfax

Great route with contrasting pitches, pretty soft at E2 but wouldn't fancy falling on the slab crux though. Felt properly cruisy on P2, easier than Meshach...

In one mega 55m pitch. Felt e2 to me. Tricky start and The crux slab is very thin for a few moves and the gear is way off to the left and 15ft below you. The top roof is ok, very safe. Hot!

Led in one big pitch doing the whole of the first pitch of Legbreak (cool groove and then slab moves) then up the groove and through the roof via the twin cracks before going left to finish up the final good moves of Meshach. Great climbing but slightly lacking in line.

P1 - not sure how this gets 3 stars really, felt a little contrived and not as good as some of its 3 (or 2) start neighbours.

Not 3 stars and P2 did not feel 5c.

Great link up. Apparently done this one before but remembered nothing...climbing is fairly steady with bomber gear all the way.

Led in one long pitch, so didn't bother with Mesach. I though the top crux was more thought provoking than the slab on Leg Break. Run-out at times, but steady and the top cracks are well protected.

Lovely varied climbing: steep start, thin fingery slab & exciting foot jamming finish (taking twin cracks direct, without flake out right). Some confusion between CC/UKC grades/names: should be 5c tech for Leg Break slab crux but misleading to include Meshach in route name, as best line simply crosses it. Not sure if it feels high E1 or low E2 - but excellent either way.

Awesome long 50m pitch. Would be better if you just did leg break/blinkers pitch. the Meshach section make the middle section scrappy. The top blinkers section is super some great positions write at the top. Thought blinkers bit deserved 5b as hard as the start.

The slab up to Meshach is quite runout and the pitch climbs all the hard climbing on p1 of Leg Break which is given 5c in the guide. Either that must be 5b or this must be 5c. Hard to say which (or is Meshach included in the name here (but not in the definitive guide) because this version uses Meshach to avoid the Leg Break slab?).

Took a small eternity on this (whole series of distractions and small errors rumbling inside my head) - apologies Pete! Good value but bit dubious gear on the crux. Best not done on a busy day.
