24m.

Rockfax Description
24m. The crack that splits the enormous roof is a total gripper; though like the school bully (and unlike Whillans!) it isn't as 'ard as it looks once you take it on! The climbing is straightforward though mighty harassing and the route feels like E1. Climb to a sitting position on The Pedestal then step right and climb the short tricky wall to the roof and a big sling on the massive spike of the Cheeseblock. Lean right to get the first of the creaking juggy flakes then launch across these to the lip where solid jamming helps the pull over into the final easy crack. The old roof climbing adage of "keep your feet on the rock at all costs" is worth bearing in mind. © Rockfax

βeta: Plenty of big jugs on the roof so not as hard as it looks from below. It’s possible to place gear in the roof and reverse to the ledge to rest before going for it.

βeta: I feel it is in that Hinterland of HVS's with a little something extra - in this case a bejugged roof with screaming exposure and a beguiling line. God forsake me for saying it, but these E0 arguments are beginning to make some sense.

βeta: Some of these comments are amazing. I went to The Roaches with some friends a couple of years ago. I was climbing at HVS and had never climbed harder than HVS. I liked the look of The Sloth, looked in the book and found it was HVS so I climbed it. It's superb. Stop trying to analyze it. If you want to climb it and can climb HVS, just get up there and do it. Otherwise climb something else.

βeta: The BMC guidebook gives 5b HVS. The HVS is ok because the climb is well protected whith the sling on the cheese block and the bomber hex at the crux. The roof is really intimidating. The problem with this climb is that it is tried by lots of though guys that have done E2's and E5's etc. and obviously they feel they have to downgrade it to 5a to sandbag everybody else!

βeta: This routes grade does not matter. The thought off doing this route put the shits up me. If it was on a Pems route 90ft up it would be part of an E4 but it is not. This is Hard Grit for the mortal Climber's. You do not get a roof like this un-less it is on an e3 or e4 Don obviosly had big balls. Don't listn to Best rock climbs ect the sling is shit 2 rock 5's go in then a camlot 3 and the hex on the lip is balls cam 4 smacks in. Don take's his brain out for this one the poor mans big route, you climb this you are taken a risk 50% of the flake is there, you now have to reach like seb on a hard grit route. I cimbed the sloth after 1 yr of e2's vector bla bla the day i did it i played pool with the baran him self what a day, and he told me a seceret about vector which i will share with you all some other time just ask it's brill. I shit my self getting on the sloth i was sick after pulling over the roof. it is 5b climbing all the way with a 5b/5c move over the lip no question. we are talking onsight ascent. this is were the route is so different to them all you have to keep going or it is game over. any one who commits to the roof and just climbs not thinking about the grade or history will achive the greatest roof route in the UK. Forget the grade enjoy the experience you will not find a route like this any were in the world. It is our heratage enjoy forget the debate about the grade who care's every climbers experience will be different and that is why we all climb and have stories to tell in the pub's of this world.

βeta: I've done this route three times. No need to do it in two pitches: 1 is fine. Gear is perfect and bomber, so it isn't bold in terms of danger, just in terms of exposure. On the crux you can a big hex or friend in above your head. You don't even need to jam - just reach up grab a jug. Upgrading this from HVS 5a would be really bad. Whillans said 'It's easy if yer use yer loaf', and he's still right. I've done it before and after the bit of flake snapped off, and it is no harder.

Have been coming to the Roaches for about 10 years and at first this route always seemed like it would be beyond me, with successive returns though the roof seemed to get smaller and more attainable. In one pitch, with sling placement and hex in pocket. Guys before me seemed to hang around forever, but knew I wouldn't be able to do that. Do or fail moment on the last big jug and managed to wedge myself in crack for a bit of a rest. Climbing isn't really that hard, crux is definitely just summing up the will to go for it.

radddogg 28 Apr, 2017 Lead O/S What a climb. Been dreaming of this route for twenty years but never thought I'd have the balls to go for it. So pleased to have got it clean on the first attempt. I got to the pedestal and felt very vulnerable. I went up and slinged the cheese block, trapping and backing it up with a good wire. I then went back to the pedestal to rest my arms and psyche myself up. I decided I'd go up and try and get something further out on the roof. I moved out from the small flake onto the right flake and got my feet up. It was all very big jugs and I found myself moving out to the end of the flake. I managed to get a cam in and my instinct just took over. I reached for the left flake and moved my feet up further - totally committed now. I moved further left and toe-hooked where my hands had just been and mantelled with my left arm while trusting the friction of a grit sloper with my right hand. I pulled myself up and jammed my knee in the crack to rest and to take it in. The Sloth, a twenty year dream, ticked. Elliot didn't seem to enjoy it, I don't think he likes grit!
What a climb. Been dreaming of this route for twenty years but never thought I'd have the balls to go for it. So pleased to have got it clean on the first attempt. I got to the pedestal and felt very vulnerable. I went up and slinged the cheese block, trapping and backing it up with a good wire. I then went back to the pedestal to rest my arms and psyche myself up. I decided I'd go up and try and get something further out on the roof.

hellboundblr 29 Jun, 2013 Lead Most nervous I have ever been before doing a climb, taken 4 years to pluck up courage. Bit damp in crack in roof, but all holds dry. Harder than expected to get on pedestal. Put sling on block and nut to keep it in. Went up to roof, lost manual dexterity but eventually managed to place cam, climb back down to slung block. Climb up and place hex next to cam, climb back down to slung block. Composed myself. Climbed back up to end of overhang, placed another cam past overhang and clipped rope, feeling very satisfied that if i cock it up now i will not break ankles hitting the wall below. Climbed on up through overhang with surprising ease on excellent hand and feet holds throughout. Don't remember any jamming through the overhang, seemed plenty of good holds instead. Fair at 5a, surprisingly.

Steve Waters, Mynydd 6 Nov, 2011 AltLd Mike led to the Pedestal. I led the roof. After many years of waiting, this superb climb did not disappoint. The shake-outs at the Cheeseblock and the big flake to its right were much better than expected leaving me fresh for the crux. The holds were big and positive. The main challenge was to choose a successful sequence from the many permutations available. The option I selected involved no jamming whatsoever by moving left a little along the lip flake (after inserting the obligatory Hex) and then a long reach with the right hand up to a juggy ledge. Celebrated sitting on the mat in the late afternoon sun eating Sushi and drinking Mike's real coffee. Perfect!

tom.ireson 25 Oct, 2011 Lead O/S The crux of this route is definitely the psychological challenge of committing to the roof! once committed it's just fun all the way! Definitely ok to do as one pitch, barely noticed any drag but that was without placing any gear up to the pedestal. Anything before there would have to be well extended I think. Great route, well worth its reputation.
