Rockfax Description
18m. The classical wide fissure is climbed by the left-hand corner with a step left onto The Pulpit if a rest is needed. Gain the right-hand crack a little higher. The right-hand crack can be followed throughout at HS but the really gangly can bridge the whole affair. Well-protected throughout. © Rockfax

Thought it was really awkward at the 2nd block... Oscar went up the left side, but I went up the right side using some sort of foot jam and face climbing the right block to get back onto the left side to retrieve gear- definitely not a 4a move; would be so much easier if I was a lot taller as there were no holds at my height. Nice and easy afterwards.

with Maxie, Minty
bazilikiukas 02/Jan/14 2nd dog

We did this one as our second multi pitch climb. I seconded it the first time and Maxie seconded afterwards. I think, this one was the second scariest climb during this trip. It was also a bit difficult. Doable though. The second part was literally using the crack on the right hand side as steps with a bit of hand jamming. But my main moves were twisting feet, jamming them in the crack and pushing up. I consider myself too short or too week to bridge on this route. The guide book said bridging it would bring a tear to one's eye.

alexpeeeee 02/Jan/14 2nd dog

Took one fall on the first pitch. Foot hold didn't stick. A clean run would be perfectly achievable with a bit less damp green and bird crap.

I'm sooo not a grit-stone climber! Made hard work of this climb. HVD (in Peaks guidebook) really shouldn't feel this hard!? Relies mainly on smearing up the slab. Had little confidence on foot placements and so laboured long on placing regular gear (cams size 2-4 required). Followed the left crack all the way to top. Excellent second by Reon! : )

Started left, then moved right about midway to finish. Good jams. Hard for grade, as with all Hen Cloud routes.

Not that fussed about this one - good, but not what I think of as a Top50 route. 2 stars IMO. Feels steeper than it looks from the bottom, but plenty of footholds, although some are very polished.
