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: I found the first pitch in the gully quite awkward. The second pitch on the flake is pumpy with lots to hold onto but not much feet! The lower you climb down the flake the harder it gets. The transition from the flake to the balancy traverse is tricky in itself. (Apparently there is a hidden foothold, but not sure I used it!). I found a right hand crimp and left hand on the undercut, to slowly traverse leftward. This is a balancy technical move, which feels very insecure, until you actually commit to make the move. After the traverse move, heading up the wide crack seems desperate (I'm not great at wide cracks anyway). Going round the corner on the arete and then onto the face I have been told is easier, but if you are 5ft 4 inches or smaller, you will have to make a quite committing move on crimps to get to the better holds above (this was the crux for me). Overall an epic and adventurous route, which will stay in my memory for a long time to come.

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.

StockportAl 30 Aug, 2019 Lead That was fun, the start was harder than I thought it might be but once that was over the rest of P1 was fairly nice. P2, scary place on top of that flake. I know it can be hand traversed but ended up with a leg on the inside of it which made getting down interesting. Eventually got beyond it, even found the 'hidden' hold easily enough, helps being tall enough to crane my neck over and see the tip of it. stepping off just required commitment and then there is the fun of the slopers to finish with next to no gear. Bit of an epic later on but that's for another day.

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!

EcoClimber 25 Oct, 2017 Lead O/S Ground fall on first pitch, but still counting it as climbed clean, due to me not having any gear in when I fell. Landed on feet, cleaned the green slim off shoes & tackled crack again. Oozing slime & running water from earlier morning rain. Threw 4 cams in first pitch. Second pitch stunning. Warm rock & dry. One of the best 100 climbs in Britain I feel. Seconder & bleaker is a 15 year old mountain goat on his half term break :)

Definitely one of the most involved routes I've seconded, felt scarier than it would to lead I reckon. Really good quality climbing though, impressive to get such good climbing out quite a small bit of rock!

Oscar Popels 19 Jun, 2017 Solo rpt What an adventure on this one! We started up at about 1am soloing the first pitch. Then setup a belay for the scary traverse left. 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.

Thinking I had moved past the harder ground I edged round the corner to find a blank slab with poor footholds, slopey crimps and the last bit of gear too far away for comfort. 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.

Second pitch was very trick for 4c or maybe I just wasn't used to the style of rock. Excellent route with oustanding positions for the grade. Glad to have got on it, but still doesn't rank with my best Scottish routes of the same grade and style.

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! :)

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 :)

Jules Lane 25 Jun, 2013 AltLd O/S Led P2. Was not liking the step of death until I located the side pull and then sorted my feet out and had a word with myself. In the end, no problem at all. Downwards traverse pretty bizarre, but great to do such a classic.

David_Gledson 9 Jun, 2013 AltLd O/S Incredible. I led an extended pitch 2(as tom belayed in the gully). A brilliant pitch, and really full on at the grade.

HassenBali 2 Jun, 2013 AltLd dog Led the second pitch, which certainly lives up to its well earned reputation. The climb down the flake and traverse make for an exhilarating route.

Big Lee 1 Jun, 2013 Lead O/S An amazing climb. Found the down-climb from the flake easy enough but the moves left along the undercut wall needed a few attempts to gain my composure. Finished the route at 9pm.
