Rockfax Description
A super classic, climbing to the right of the big rounded arete, never desperate and never ending - 30m of pumpdom with knee-bars galore. Hot-shots run races on the route - not that it really needs any more polishing! © Rockfax

Felt better than the last time. No hard moves really. But it just goes on and on forever.

Went for the onsight and got ridiculously flash pumped fell on probably the only really hard move just past halfway distance

Jumped on with the intention of going bolt to bolt working the moves but felt surprisingly fresh and flowy so climbed to the top clean. I actually fluffed the chain clip at the top- I'd been placing the draws on lead and the top anchors were too stiff to clip the rope into in my pumped state so I tried clipping a locking crab through them. Pulled up a ton of slack and got the rope sitting on the hook of the nose. It fell back out. Pulled up a ton more slack but this time was way pumped and with no hope of down climbing or clipping I lunged for the chains and missed, taking a super fall. I didn't feel like I had to climb the route again just to clip the chain. I was pleased to have climbed this far second go.

Climbed all the moves on this try but fell three times.

Man I have no fitness...turned into an absolute epic.

At last...! For some reason this one got to be a sort of nemesis after giving it a couple of very tentative scary dogs over 2 visits in May and October 2013. Tried it on some friends draws 2 days ago and after their success managed to put the draws back in and then finally send it today. Epic!!

Proper pumpfest. Happy to get it done so don't have to wait in queues again ;P

Massive error getting on this in full afternoon sun! Just about managed to clip the chains as the world was spinning and nearly passed out!!

Went for the cliche sunset climb on Aegialis. Thought I would try and onsight it. Didn't stand much of a chance. The rock was way too warm (greasy), and I needed a much bigger diesel engine to get to the top.

Went ok surprisingly. Didn't even grab the belay. Still think its hard. World class route

Failed on this 12/13 years ago. This time got to the 10th bolt on the flash and was unlucky to come off where I did. Out in space so back to the ground and dogged to top and stripped gear in the sun. Exhausting

An absolutely incredible route - one of the best I've ever been on! Goes on forever, relatively good holds all the way. Worked a couple of times and then went guns blazing for 1st RP - didn't rest enough beforehand and fell on last hard move near 2nd to last bolt! Totally gutted! I'll be back....

It was actually pretty wet and I didn't manage to find many knee bars. Found it pretty hard and felt like I just had to keep going instead of taking my time, much harder than Priapos but a fantastic climb none the less.

Had to do it in the full sun which was not good, came down soaked. Not a jug fest like I expected, quite a few slopers.

Put draws up, but a little too wet and a little too hard for today!

Almost messed this up. The sun came out and it got pretty sweaty.

this felt like a bit of a marathon and not the amazing route thats made out. great position, good steep climbing and a lovely line but too one-dimensional to be truly classic. only 2 short sections could be considered tricky and they really just need a bit of commitment.
