38m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An exciting expedition up an unlikely line at the grade.
1) 4c, 20m. Climb into the crack with difficulty (might even be 5a) then follow it to a ledge, before moving left to a block belay.
2) 4a, 18m. Take the wall to a good ledge then the groove to the final imposing overhang. Fortunately this has massive jugs. © Rockfax

Cracking route, but the hardest hs ive ever done. The starting move was pretty nails, did it first try bringing with my feet facing left and jamming with my right hand to reach the good jug. From there the rest of th first pitch is just a jug pulling romp. The initial section of the second pitch was a bit tricky at the bulge and the feet run out. I then spent an age on the ledge below the final overhang trying to work out what to do. I thought I was going to have to hang off fist jams until I found the secret jug inside the crack, after that it was quite straight forward.

Was on a top rope trailing a lead rope and placing protection Only did 1st pitch. A hard start with a high heel hook with a nasty hand jam (especially in a wet crack). At first 1 put in 2 nuts and a cam and aid climbed the start before I free climbed that section on the 4th attempt. After that the climb was easy with nice crimp and off widths with plenty of protection. All placement were bomber (although I almost over cammed 1 cam).

First route on beautifully sunny afternoon (what - summers finally come month late!) Intriguing start involving laybacking: boulder mat below providing psychological help, esp. For lead. Hs 4c yes, but only if you find right sequence of moves to climb into crack. Ending has beautiful handhold hole in the left wall in the crack, jugs aren't apparent though until get arm over the top.

with T Max
Stuart Hurworth 08/Apr/11 AltLd dnf

Very difficult start, looks like there could be more than one way to go, but the obvious layback is definitely a 5a I think! Placed a nut from the ground with a big jump and then attempted the move several times getting slightly higher and more pumped on each one. Got hold of the handhold above but then couldn't get feet up into a position I could sustain or move from. Ended up seconding it without too much trouble though after a bit of a rest! Then came P2, leader belayed in the wrong place initially then moved over to belay off the big block on easy gully wall. Went straight up from there though found relatively poor gear in the mid section, and went up right instead of left following what looked like easier moves. Realised was on Jelly Roll then lost confidence to go back across onto the route and came down. Marcus then led this pitch though bailed out of doing the overhanging crack with rope drag and traversed all the way left under the roof (probably increasing the grade!) to the top part of easy gully wall. Think we need to start over! Will be doing this again properly!

The pitch 2 "traverse" caused some shenanigans. i think I went too far to the left and then too high, to belay underneath the crack pitch. This made this a very bold traverse for both me and my second. But it meant that pitch 3 was safer because the belay was right underneath the crack. Good fun!

Tried the starting move on 2 previous occasions and failed dismally! Finally got up the bugger. Top move isn't as hard as it seems - just be bold!

lead this again recently, no way the start is 4c atleast hard 5a, the final overhang (with all the holds found) is stiff HS 4b climbing IMO. I think I'd be happy with HS 5a as the grade for this route overall.
