Rockfax Description
24m. Despite the name, not very technical but bold in its central section. Climb straight up the slab (harder for the short and unprotected where it matters) until you join the traverse of Pedestal Route. Finish as for Pedestal Route, or more in keeping, out right as for Hollybush Crack. © Rockfax

First outing on grit. After a couple of cams couldn't spot any more gear so just ran it out (always gear to be found in the mountains, grit stone naivety?), it started to chuck it down, I was about or past ground fall level, and I couldn't reverse my previous move due to shortness/rain. A very helpful chap at the top of the crag threw a rope down after about 10-15 minutes of trying to figure things out (Pretty embarrassing to say the least). First trip to grit was interesting, luckily Valkyrie and a second on smear test made the day!

anothet nice slab, interesting climbing all the way to the corner, pretty much just scrambling from there. Not sure what is bold about this route, I found plenty of gear all the way up (all cams). A bit stretchy near the not quite flake on the left.

Nice climb, but little protection made me a little iffy to try and lead. So just topped rope this time.

There wasn't much protection to be had until 3/4 way up but it was reasonably simple climbing. Plus I had a limited rack of wires only. Did the Neb finish but badly placed the last piece of protection too high in the corner crack and the drag made it a struggle of a finish.

Anyone shorter than 5'3" should not attempt this unless they are willing to dyno off tiny smears! Completely negated the bomber pieces of gear I placed once I stepped off the slab onto the corner by deciding to do the Neb Finish, not realising that there is no gear at all on the Neb Finish.

Backed off as no gear after start, unless you have a couple of large (2 of same size?) cams for the two pockets. Moves are easy but it's basically a solo until somewhere near the top...

Almost another Black and Tans moment like last year but kept my cool. Didn't have the right size cam for either of the two circular holes at half height so had to decide to traverse left or right to gear or carry on up with Desmond Decker in the hope of good gear, I opted to carry on up. Thankfully the break that the traverse of Pedastal route follows yielded the right size cam slot. One or two tricky moves but mostly jugs.

Very good route, i really enjoyed it, but did get a bit concerned at one point as i didnt have a big enough cam to put in a pocket half-way up where there arn't many gear placements and i would have easily decked out if i came off, fortunatly Tim chucked one up to me n carried on fine from there.

Monster ca. 12-14m fall whilst attempting the Neb finish. Fell from the top and ended half way down. Amazingly unhurt and so finished the route up the easier finish as for pedestal route.

Jonathan tried Neb Finish, without placing the high gear (as he hadn't read the guidebook well enough), and took a massive 14-metre fall! Luckily he didn't get injured apart from a bit of bruises. Then he finished on the original route immediately after that.
