40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A wandering climb of great quality - perhaps the archetypical grit classic and thought by many to be worth HVS.
1) 4b, 15m. Climb the slabby groove to its top then traverse left to a stance on giant jammed blocks with a variety of belays.
2) 4c, 25m. Climb on to the flake (a big sling on it stops the rope jamming down the back) and descend its edge until a hidden foothold gives respite. Gain a crease on the left and teeter along this and all the way round onto the front face.
One tricky move leads to the well positioned slabby finish. Great care is needed to avoid the rope jamming and to protect the second. © Rockfax

βeta: The teeter move was harder and scarier than the vast majority of routes I've done. I must've missed the hidden foothold and/or just done it completely wrong. Good laugh though.

βeta: p.s. Apparently you can foot traverse the ledge at the top of the first pitch with hands on jugs on the wall above. Without realising that I hand traversed it (where it's more slabby but with poor hand holds), which looks a little interesting and dubious but it actually ok :S

βeta: I led the first pitch, didn't find it as polished as I anticipated, certainy not slippy (or maybe I'm just getting used to it). I'm not convinced about this hidden foothold. Either a) it's at the bottom of the flake, or b) it's on the left. If it's a), my leader climbed down too it, found it, and decided it was easier to climb back up a step and just step left - I did the same, with right foot on a notch on the edge of the flake. b) it it's on the left, it's not hidden. The hidden undercut to aid the step across is far more hidden! Or maybe I shouldn't have said that ;) Regardless, I enjoyed the route. We hadn't planned to do it, I once wanted to but went off the idea with it being so popular. But it was a special occasion and quiet at the crag, so we just found ourselves on it which turned out to be the perfect choice and we had a great evening. Kudos to the party of 3 who did it in the dark with headtorches after us, one of whom had just led his first route that evening!!

βeta: >>>A wandering climb of great quality - the archetypical 'must-do'!<<< A horribly contrived and pointless wandering route with virtually no 'climbing' involved. Plenty of grovelling along ledges though if you like that. A technical grade of maybe 4B and probably HVS due to the "controlled falling" section. There is a hidden left foothold, but it didn't seem necessary once your right foot is at the very bottom of the flake, then just step across with your left foot. If all routes were like this dustbin full of dogsh1te, I'd probably take up bouldering. Ignore it and do The Sloth instead. That's good climbing with a point, exposure and exhilaration. How did Valkyrie get three stars? I give it three dog turds.

βeta: Absolutely loved this route. Been building up to it for a while and definitely didn't find it the most challenging VS I've done - but definitely the most fun. The hidden foothold - is there but not exactly hidden - look down and you see it! I didn't find the first pitch particularly polished - just a bit awkward. Stepping onto the face wasn't that technical - I found the technical crux the first move up the final slab - but I'm pretty short making it a real reach. Rope work really makes you think. Definitely worth doing - i already want to do it again. But not particularly hard or exposed for VS and definitely not more than 4c.

βeta: Using double ropes the second will have a rope directly above them for the whole of the down-climb and traverse, so will not fall any distance at all. If you only have a single rope, pull it through and lower it back to the second, so the same applies. Anything which could give the second any significant fall is poor rope work.

The hidden foothold is only hidden if you don't look at the route from the ground, where it's obvious. But I thought the foothold made the route harder, I could only make the step across by not using it.

danieleaston 1 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Descending the flake was hard, but essentially top-roped. I laybacked it. Step across was fine, tough getting round the corner and up with increasing rope drag and boldness. Don't clip the right-hand rope.

Alaister 18 Jul, 2018 AltLd Mini epic. Lead P2 missed the hidden ledge and traversed across next to flake too high up with great difficulty. After this point couldn't continue on the final few moves due to rope drag, due to a porly placed cam and wrong belay stance after P1, so reversed and belayed my second just after the flake traverse. Finaly toped out after far too much effort being expended for only a VS!

We let Freddie take the lead since it was his birthday. because of lack of light he missed the crucial foothold under the flake and did some kind of weird palm off with high feet and somehow ended up past the move. a 5c solution to a 4c problem... he set up a belay round the corner and Joe set off. Probably the worst technique I've ever seen him do. I wondered if he even had legs. I think the fatigue was getting to him. After this I seconded the middle bit and we all romped up the easy slab together to finish. A very memorable outing indeed.

JoeFoster59 18 Jun, 2017 2nd rpt What a trip. After a chilled day failing to climb limestone in chee dale did this for Freddies birthday. I was ready to fall asleep when we left the car. We got to the base at around 11pm and all soloed the first pitch. Freddie got the lead of the second as it was his birthday in the dark and doing it onsight he found a very interesting way through the crux. Once he'd set up an anchor I was seconding first the problem was I was half asleep on the belay ledge and wasn't in a state to climb. But I manned up and pretty much campused the starting flake and slid myself down to the base of the flake using absolutely no technique. I absolutely botched the step across as well using a very awkward technique. Not my greatest climbing performance but a great birthday adventure. Need to practice climbing with a head torch.

I spent 30 minutes trying to commit to the move, which lead to a comfy size ledge. Joe shouted up 'do you want a rope' I couldn't have been happier. I was never going to ask for one, but being offered, I couldn't say no. Terrifying. deserves HVS.

I managed to get severe rope drag (shouldn't've clipped the "top-rope" to the sling on the flake) on the balancey move around the arete - which made it more spicy. Then managed to get the "traverse" rope snaked on a flake - which gave lots of drag, so couldn't haul up gripped second, attempted to throw a haul loop (weighted with hexes) against the wind - eventually lowered second off and got the guy below to clean my last bit of gear. Crappy end to what should've been one of my best climbs to date. Oh well! :)

gav 26 Oct, 2014 AltLd β Peter lead P1, which was mostly dry, although some smears felt a bit committing. I then set off on P2. Immediately the flake looked harder than I expected, but I moved up and over and (very) slowly talked myself back down it on the other side. At the bottom, I was struggling to find the hidden foothold, but some shouts from the assembling crowds helped me find it. I then proceeded to not make the step across for a fair amount of time, maybe 15 minutes. After discussing retreat with Peter for a bit, and trying it in a couple of different ways repeatedly, I finally talked myself into committing and stepped across. Stepping round onto the front face, the wind picked up very strongly but the rest was easy. Or should have been had I not (despite trying hard to avoid it) introduced hideous rope drag. In the end not the prettiest ascent, but I got there in the end.

Abu777 23 Jun, 2014 AltLd O/S Absolute epic! Felt very tough for a VS, convinced HVS is more appropriate grade, if grading for the onsight. Once you know where the hidden foothold is at the bottom of the flake (P2), and how to step over away from the flake (crux), it's actually very enjoyable! Brother did P2 and did a good job of setting the ropes to protect my seconding - would have been even hairier without!! Great adventure but balls of steel required at the grade :)

JamesColeman 29 Sep, 2013 AltLd O/S Very tough...and very weird. First pitch felt technically hard. Second pitch: flake downclimb tiring. Left traverse commiting. Climbing route to top was confusing to figure out and poorly protected. Loads of rope drag. Poor belay at top, cannot see seconder (or hear due to wind). Set up a hanging belay off the top instead so could see seconder. Exciting and different but too dodgy for three stars.

At times terrifying, I felt genuinely as though I might fall coming down the flake, had not seen the description of a hidden foothold but found one anyway, then I had to work out the body position to be able to step across. I then couldn't remember whether the climb went up the crack or the face; after much backward and forwarding I committed to the face with the size of the fall and swing firmly in my head. Brilliant adventure.

Cool position moving round the spike and onto the arete, made a second belay on the corner as we only had a single rope, the drag would've been insane! Cool link up!

After turning the corner rope jam came into effect making the first move up feel very tenuous. A howling gale tried to blow me off the top making communication with Dan impossible and I didn't give him enough slack for to descend the flake.

I didn't realise how far around the arete you have to traverse before good holds appear, so I ended up trying the jamming crack instead which was nails.

My Rockfax book shows line going round to the right, when in fact I think the crack is probably the correct line (as shown in the BMC guidebook). Rockfax also shows the wrong line after the traverse on P2 (they may have corrected this in the newer edition). Will buy the BMC book instead next time! Where is the four stars button?

matt.jj 5 Jun, 2010 AltLd Lead the first pitch which is nice but simple enough. The second pitch is the one; not technically dificult, just airy and committing. The leader will not avoid rope drag, and if using two ropes leave one unclipped for the second to be protected on the flake, or a huge fall is possible! As for the hidden foothold it is as plain as day, so don't go hunting for what is obvious. A true classic!

Good hidden ledge for right foot at the bottom of the flake. Good under hang hold just above the ledge that you step across to help you over. Traverse around the nose to ascend a difficult slab which to my mind is the crux. After this, good jugs to the top. Weather was misty with a fine rain that made the climb greasy and much more difficult than it normally is. Epic climb with great variety!

whiting.jp 3 Oct, 2008 AltLd dog I'd wanted to do this one, particularly the second pitch for *aaaaages*, so I was really very excited to finally get on it. James led the first pitch very nicely, slippy as hell. Then I ended up having a complete and utter nightmare on it (try 15 minutes desperately hanging/slumping/slipping/swearing at the bottom of the flake). Was completely psyched out when it came to making the step across, and took an age to make it. After that bit (and once I'd calmed down again) it went fairly smoothly. Rope work requires as much concentration as hinted at. May need to have a rematch sans cold at some point.

gazbonutter 14 May, 2008 AltLd O/S Led first pitch not in great style but confidently and solidly, thoroughly enjoyed it. pete then led the second pitch and did a great job of the layback downclimb to start, I don't think I would have been up to it quite yet after following him. Pete accidentally lowered Jo off as she got to the lowest point of the flake much to her annoyance but High winds were to blame not Pete!
