Rockfax Description
A rite of passage for HVS leaders - the exposure of the huge face is well felt, a great experience at the grade. Start on ledges below the groove. Move 3m left then climb up and pull back right into the groove. Climb this, past various bits of old gear, and plenty of good wires, to the ledge at the top. Abseil off or continue for a short pitch (4c) to tick the summit direct from a ledge, or up a groove on the right. The obvious direct start is about a grade harder. © Rockfax

FFA. Steve Read, Steve Hunt 1958. FA. (as Bastion Wall) Pete Hassell, Peter Biven and another 1953.

βeta: Fantastic - especially the layback switch move. Yes, its polished but positive enough to not matter too much. Its def not harder than Debauchery (John Alcock) but is a solid HVS. What I dont understand is why the route has the kink at the start - if done direct (with inevitable, unavoidable but careful use of the tree) the grade is maintained, there's good gear and the line is purer. Done it both ways and prefer it direct. When the tree goes (not long now I'm afraid as its properly dead) the direct route could be around E2 5c ish.

βeta: Tough for HVS but no harder. Good sustained climbing all the way. The route is not polished - whoever says it is has never climbed in the Avon Gorge! It has just had lots on traffic. A 'not to miss' climb worth on 3 stars.

βeta: have to say am note quite solid at HVS so found this a real struggle mostly due to not getting any rests to put gear in and looking up and not being able to see any possible rests. for me on site more like E1 but i agree looking back more top end HVS. if a Vs climber now only aspire to this route if you are strong, wait to improve your style first

Admittedly harder than I expected as getting used to the trad grades. Spent to much energy placing gear to protect one of the first moves on the direct start should have just gone for it to easier ground instead getting pumped out. After a pull on gear and a rest made the ledge. Back to climb clean next time. Ticked the summit. Phil lead 4c.

Paul Sagar 8 Apr, 2018 Lead O/S Great route, and my first clean HVS lead! Never desperate but had to concentrate. Got scared a couple of times but held it together. Gear is all there and good feet if you use them. Jess said some of my placements were marginal so should probably lead a whole bunch more VS and get more practice in - would also help at being quicker at picking the right damn nuts for the right damn cracks. Didn’t find polish to be anything of an issue - try some of the linestone in Spain, and this feels pristine! Abseiled off from the bolts as final pitch didn’t seem worth it, and no desire to have to walk back to the bottom.

Fell off due to feet popping off while I was trying to figure it out (next to gear so only a small fall). Tried it a second time but it wasn't looking any easier and daylight was beginning to fade, so I bailed out up Original Route, which was quite nice and felt like a walk in the park in comparison. Should do the full route at some stage with the usual HVS start rather than the 5b/c crackline of Flaky Wall and the second pitch (we abbed off the bolts as dusk was rolling in), walked out by torchlight and back at the car at 7pm - a good day.

Chalky Cat 27 Feb, 2008 2nd O/S Quite unnerving even as a second, had forgotten how cold limestone can be at this time of year and on a particularly cold and windy day. Couldn't feel my toes and fingers - which was unpleasant when groping for polished hand/footholds. Glad that everytime I drive past I'll be able to think I've been up that.
