Rockfax Description
28m. A great outing through some impressive territory.
1) 4a, 12m. Climb the flake-crack up the right-hand side of the huge flake of The Pedestal to a sitting stance (low belays) on its top. Starting up the left-hand side of the flake ups the overall grade to S 4a.
2) 3c, 16m. Reverse off the end of the ledge then traverse left and up to the left-hand corner of the great roof. To stop the rope jamming, try fixing a runner out left to direct it away from the crack, then pull over the bulge and finish up the deep groove. © Rockfax

Led the first pitch, certainly a tricky first move, in backing off quickly to have another look I ended up slipping off (good bit of gear though) in general the climb seemed a little difficult for the grade but a great climb none-the-less. Second pitch is a delight and far easier.

A proper adventure! Difficult start for the grade, then nice climbing to the pedestal. Mild concern about getting onto the pedestal when I first got there, but soon worked out the obvious move. Belay required some thought, as I was leading both pitches and ledge fairly small. Rest of route lovely - don't spend too long thinking about how to get over P2 bulge - it's easy when you go for it.

Lead both pitches. I chose the easier route up to the Pedestal (over to the right). Don't put gear alongside the Pedestal, move as far left and then mantle onto it. Use a sling and slot over to the right to anchor. On the second pitch, put a runner over to the left before the crack to stop the rope from getting jammed.

Amazing route, really enjoyed some of the moves and exposure. Some spectacular rock and positions. One of my favourite ever climbs. Becoming very polished in places. Tip - traverse before you mantel into the belay ledge and the traverse after the ledge is much easier than it looks.

Seconded the first pitch, getting onto the pedestal from the right seemed quite tricky for the grade. The traverse on the second pitch was the highlight. An excellent route

miketong 25/Jul/15 AltLd RP

Struggled a bit again in this, having to down climb and restart the beginning. Not on form with leads today! I think it had some tricky stuff for a HVD. There's also a slighty tricky move getting on to the ledge to belay from, ended up doing an awkward foot up, a possible better option would be to go lower on the face and mantle up. 2nd half had a memorable exposed traverse at the start.

Epic #1: Both half-ropes got jammed, Lee had to abseil down to free them. Epic #2: On the way down after the climb Lee tried squeezing though a gap between rocks and got a cam stuck, needed a passer-by to give him a leg up to get free

SuperLee1985 15/Mar/14 Lead O/S

Be very carefull of jamming your ropes in the corner of the overhang, put some gear out left and clip both ropes throug it. (I did not do this 1st time which resulted in a mini epic involving me self-belaying a down-climb back to the corner to free the ropes, I will not make this mistake again). however asside from this a really nice route. Did the Neb finnish. Really good route, nice exposure on lead stepping off the warm comforts of the 'pedestal'. I notice a lot of people start this and the sloth from the right, i did the direct start, which felt quite tricky - harder than HVD IMHO.

I led the 1st pitch and Dan the second. Dan's first multi pitch lead! Did the direct start to spice it up a bit.

This one was the scariest of the whole trip. To climb it, it wasn't too bad. However, towards the very end it was very difficult to get up on the top. The ledge was very narrow. Ollie was already there belaying me from the top. I was in an uncomfortable position where I had noting to hold on to with my left foot, therefore no balance, yet I had to get on top of the ledge. Bit by bit I wiggled up, over Ollie and got into a safe position. Spent maybe half an hour on that ledge with no anchor or rope while waiting for Max to climb up and then trying to decide what to do next. Originally we were supposed to carry on climbing up and to the left, but it was quickly getting dark and cold. We were all mildly freaking out. Eventually, the guys lowered me down and then down climbed the route. They reached the ground in a complete darkness. Well done though :)

Superb route. One of most interesting easy climbs what I ever climbed.This got in my opinion 5 stars.

Onion 22/Jan/11 2nd O/S

Lovely ledge to sit on and look out over the peak. Windy and cold on the top. First opportunity to eye up the roof of the sloth up close - looks like some of the flake has been broken off recently.

First lead climb with a donated hawser two slings and a bit of plumbing bend on string

oldmanofmow ??/1956 Lead

My favourite route at the Roaches, like Grooved Arete its great for impressing beginners. Might have done it 20 times in all.
