16m.

Rockfax Description
16m. Perhaps the best slab route in Western Grit! Climb the awkward overhanging corner to the base of the upper crack and large cams. Balance left to the tantalising flake and if you are completely baffled, try a bit of lateral thinking. Follow the creaky flake to its end (slightly dubious runners) then weave a way up the final bald slab connecting a set of small blisters by brilliantly intense climbing. © Rockfax

βeta: I daftly had a bash at this in the 30 degree heat summer last year. Big mistake! The step accross took a while to work out what to do, and really sets you up for what's coming. I got stranded very near the top when misread the slab, and with aching sweaty & numb feet I called for a top rope!

βeta: fell off this today, it was quite green and my foot just popped off one of the smears above the flake, ended up below the overhang. I reckon i could have done it if it wasnt so green so i'll try again next year. Found the bulge easy, just take a minute to work it out and then go for it. Definat;y harder than chalkstorm!

βeta: Don't care what anyone say's this is harder than chalkstorm. About 2/3 of the way up the upper slab was the crux for me, a tricky little move with the exposure makes it quite intense. The bulge didn't feel possible till I did it then seemed quite easy. Must do route

βeta: Geezus! The BMC guide suggests placing high gear - I didn't (bomber placement straight in front of you for the crux), hence that gear only protected that move. I then proceeded to get so gripping two moves above the end of the flake, I needed rescuing! With higher gear in the Bulger, I would say this is a stiff E2, without it's terrifying! The rule for both the Bulger section and the crux (easy 5c) is simply to keep your body as far out from the rock as you can get! Chalkstorm (on-sighted) didn't feel this bad!

βeta: WOW! This is the best slab i've ever climbed. Found the VS crack really awkward though, almost as bad as The Move across! The top 2 metres or so of the slab were "intense", to quote the guidebook; nasty fall potential as well, expect to lose most of your shoes and skin. I'd give it (easy?) E3; it's definitely harder than Chalkstorm (which should only be E2).

βeta: The move left is not that hard once you work out how to do it, but it seems like a lot of people never work it out. I have on a couple of occasions helped people out by giving the beta (after asking if they wanted it) when they've been in-situ for some time. Incidentally I still reckon it's worth E2 even with a runner high in Bulger - look at the photo and work out where you'd finish coming off the last slab move - only just above the o'hang.

A high runner in the bulger was used as per BMC description, I placed it at the same height as the last runner in the flake. Sussed the crux, loaded the flake with gear had a head torch passed up to me as it was getting dark. I launched up the slab to find the rock was still warm and greasy! I arrived at the Heathery ledge I assumed that was to top, as I began to scuttle off right around the corner my belayer pointed out the route had one more section. Looking up doubtfully and psychologically reaching my limit I found some small gear and unashamedly lanked to the top, turned around and was greeted by a red horizon with Venus and Jupiter low in the sky. Perfect end to a brilliant weekend at Rock Hall.

steveb2006 10 May, 2003 2nd dnf Paul gets round the crux bulge but flounders on the bold slab above. Consider trying to get a top rope - but he eventually moves up and completed the route - lucky as it begins to rain. When I start its a downpour and water is pouring from the slab. Manage to get all the gear out and lower off
