50m.

Rockfax Description
A gem of a route, but like all gems rather polished - a sign of its allure as one of the best E2s in the country. The route is best done in one pitch, but can be split either at the large break at 20m or right of the flake almost in line with the Debauchery stance (in Perseus). Start below the prominent groove. Climb the groove to a ledge below the bulge (optional stance to reduce rope drag higher up). Pull through the bulge on the left and follow the crack above until a step right gains another crack. Continue past Debauchery into another groove on the left. Continue up the flake above to a position below the big old bolt. Pass this leftwards via a wonderful manoeuvre and finish up a steep groove to the top. Alternatively climb past the bolt at a polished E3 6a. © Rockfax

FFA. Pete Livesey in 1974. FA. Oliver Woolcock, Clive Rowland, Paul Nunn 1963. The current bolt was placed by Chris Craggs, nearly 20 years ago!

βeta: How to climb in one pitch with 60m half ropes ("A" & "B") and belay: Once toped out you should untie and temporary secure rope "A" off at the bush near the edge, which your 2nd is tied into. Then pull up only enough rope of rope "B" to reach solid anchors a fair bit back from the cliff edge where you should untie from and attach the end of this rope to the anchor. Rope "B" ends up hanging +10m or so up the cliff so your second can't be tied into this rope. Go back to edge carefully and secure yourself ready to belay off rope "B". Using rope "A" you can then bring your 2nd up on rope "A" only until they can tie into rope "B" which should be before the first overhang. This avoids the need for a belay/faff and the route climbs much nicer in one.

Dave Almond 7 Sep Lead dog Pulled a nice chalked hold off on the first bulge and took some air time. Went right of the bolt this time and ended up on Andromeda which I fell off at the break, more air time. Quick rest and pulled through second time then hand traversed left back to Darius corner. Nice to actually top out this time despite the fall. Good thing is I can go back again and try the left hand finish to see if I can get it clean!

Seemed much harder and quite scary. Went down to the proper line at the end of the roof and belayed Sarah over to me, then went up to the proper stance - delicate moves over on the pockets. Finished up Debauchery to save time as the sun was setting by this point, will have to come back and take the right line next time!

Whorlhill 16 Feb AltLd I went to High Tor with Jason, to climb a classic E2. The sun was shining above us, the sky was a brilliant blue. Though the climbing was right at my limit, I wasn’t nervous at all. As Jay would be paying attention and hold the ropes should I fall. Little flakes, little pockets and edges were just enough to progress. But it wasn’t especially easy, no guarantee of success. In my favour the gear was lovely and not too tricky to find. So the climbing held my attention, while the gear settled my mind. With a great offset nut by my ankles, from a little edge my foot popped. Not to worry the rope would soon catch me, my rapid descent soon be stopped. But limestone was blurring past quickly, as to why I just didn’t know. ‘Till I stopped upside down slightly shaken, some ten or twelve metres below. Mike and Chris were glad I was breathing, as they’d watched it all from nearby. And Jason seemed quite oblivious that I’d decided to fly. The little blue offset was holding so gear placement cannot be blamed. But there’s belaying and f*cking belaying as Jonny Dawes once exclaimed! Of course Jason did fine and I was ok.

No desperate moves but sustained 5b all the way with a few harder bits and therefore quite pumpy by the end. Had mega rope drag at top and found gear a bit fiddly. Feet slipped off glassy holds a couple times too. 60m ropes did not get me back to the tree - cue mega belay/rope faff.

Misha 28 Jul, 2018 2nd rpt As great as I remembered it from leading it 8 years ago, quality climbing all the way. Was seconding reasonably quickly but still took half an hour. Sustained at 5a-5b with a few 5c moves, though lots of rests. I’d say tough E2. Sam took LH finish. Took me a little while to figure out the crux moves there as initially ended up wrong handed. Fine when you find all the footholds! Started raining as I topped out but then cleared up and the crag dried out, so went to do Amber Gambler. Went up to the M1 belay ledge by mistake so started climbing down but slipped or snapped a hold. Took a 5 slide, hit something with my leg and ended up with a 7cm long gash down to the muscle. Patched it up with the first aid kit, no bleeding fortunately. Got 6 internal stitches and 6 external. Started raining again anyway, should have bailed...

Its a lot of climbing - rock fax description seems wrong going up and left past the bolt is the direct 6a finish. The RH finish is the normal way and one 5b/c move only. Could not reach the tree at the back even with 60m ropes so sat on the banking a long way back.

Longsufferingropeholder 6 Sep, 2015 Lead A minefield of polished holds. Was going ok until I stepped on one trying to reverse to the bolt from the blank, gearless, holdless void out left. Thanks for that, rockfax (cheers for the bolt though, Chris C!). 5c my arse. Fell about 10m onto the bolt, which held. Got back up, licked some of the blood off my fingers, and after a lot of feeling around found a much more sensible finish just to the right. This may have been E2, 5c and 3* once, but I don't think it's any of those today. It felt dangerous all the way. A good one to second.

For those wanting to one pitch it (and belay a second) , it's just possible on 60m doubles but you may want a spare line pre placed at the top for an anchor on the tree. I had 5m sling for the ab and made it to the ground with 6" to spare, on stretch.

jon_gill1 9 Jul, 2014 AltLd dog Well its been a long time coming, finally got on this route on a windy and threatening to rain Wednesday evening after work. Chris led the first pitch up to the thread belay stance that debauchery crosses, he did a great job and held it together when 3 nuts plummeted towards my head and the rest he caught as they slid off my oval biner,climbing to the belay stance with a mouth full of nuts was pretty inspiring although sounds dodgy! I climbed up to Chris with all the world on my shoulders from a tough few weeks at work and the pressure of Yosemite and climbing El Cap looming ever closer! I could feel my climbing was not its usual self by a any means, I struggled with a couple of moves and found it awkward to see the fut placements near the crux of the first pitch in the darkness from the threatening clouds as small drops of rain started to hit my face. Reaching the belay I know that this is going to be the hardest lead ever for me in this state, a passing joke,yet with some seriousness to Chris that im not sure i will be able to climb this today was met with the words of "well i'm sure as hell not going to" So press on i must with the fear still fresh in my mind from climbing the deathtrap E3 at Craig Arthur the week before. I nervously move on upwards and eventually after passing the thread i start slipping in and out of being back on form. cack handedly putting a wire in before moving up to calmly unclip it and turn it to the correct position! This helped me to feel that i was getting back in the swing of things,i moved on upwards to below the bolt and thread, moving up through the jug to clip them. what an amazing place to be, high above the river and the sound of cars and bikers out for an evenings blast, I zone back in and press on.as i move across the jug that id pulled up through i realise its going to get tricky!I come to the realisation that i will need to use the small pockets in my right hand and step up on the small polished footholds to reach out to the small side pull and the cross my hands over to gain the large side pull........then nothing, where are the holds,confused i spend the best part of 10 minutes clinging on desperately looking for a hold i may have missed. Its no use, i'm pumped out of my mind and i realise that i will have to take the lob onto the bolt....years of this uber classic looming large in my mind about to fade into failure, just as my hands are about to give out the voice of my friends Jim and Geoff having just topped out on Debauchery offer me a top rope. Glancing at my watch I see its 9.45pm with very little light for chris to get up behind me,I accept the kind offer. Down the final grove comes the rope with a large hms attached clattering its way towards me, as i clip it in to my belay loop I realise the beast has beaten me but it was so worth getting on. On two days of reflection I still think its much closer to E3 than E2 and top end 5c.

Did it in one withering pitch, lots of rests though which I took full advantage of, so it took me an hour and 50 minutes to climb it! Tom took an hour to second, which made me feel a bit less of a slow coach. :-) Used about 20 runners, which is a new record for a single pitch. Should go back and do the direct finish.

petemeads ??, 1975 Lead O/S Well, at the time I lead this (an early ascent) there was still one bolt for resting/aid high up and I used it - but seconded it free several years later. A magnificent pitch either way.
