Rockfax Description
The fine central line is now getting a bit worn but is still brilliant. The wider section of crack at two-thirds height is most problematic. Excellent climbing and usually occupied. © Rockfax

C Witter 25/Jul/17 Lead rpt

Came back to repeat this great climb. It was good to see that the first time wasn't some kind of magic trick. Flew up the first half, but it was very hot up on the wall, and I managed to miss the last gear slot before the crack gets very wide, which led to some fretting and interesting engineering operations. Felt tired and pumped and tense up the last third, as a result - but happy with the lead. 30 minutes, including belay, which seemed reasonable. The rest of the evening was lovely - sunny, cheery, with good conversation and a beer at the golf club whilst waiting for the train. Too brief!

After climbing for only 3 weeks i was a little apprehensive of following up this route as a second, but with a little coaxing from the lead climber and shouts of encouragement from below i managed to get up it! Polish and the height gave me the shakes around half way up, the last section towards the loose blocks seemed easier. A really enjoyable climb and one to lead for the future.

radddogg 29/Jun/17 Lead β

Pleased to finally lead this legendary climb. Seconded twice before and both times told myself I could never lead it but just went for it this time. Some hard moves in places made harder by its popularity. A great workout.

This climb has haunted my dreams for two years. Today I finally had a go. The main wall was dripping this morning, but by 3pm the January sun was out, the day was warm and everything looked perfect. Ali bullied me gently ("it'll never be better than today"; "life is fleeting"; "what does it matter if you fall off?") and I got on it, feeling nervous as hell (not helped by a few damp holds at the bottom). But, it was steady, enjoyable, sustained - fantastic. I kept expecting a crux, but it seems the real crux was deciding to leave the ground. This climb has been like an albatross around my neck - an object of desire and irrational fear. Now it is done. Belaying, looking out over Silverdale, with the mist lit up gold by the low sun, I felt so calm. A perfect moment. One thing to note: some very loose blocks at the very top. Don't drop them on your second! ;)

We only had a single basic rack and so had to place the protection sparsely which otherwise would make the route less scary. Double set of cams and nuts would be helpful.

Duncan Zerafa 18/Sep/16 Lead dog

Ran out of gear 3/4 way up and rested on what gear I had left, after constant down climbing to recycle the only big cams I had. Limestone is weird! Clay gave me a top rope to finish last section. Think I'd rather have done Assagai.

richorme 21/Aug/10 Lead dnf

Got to half height without too much trouble, found it quite polished. Eventually got out of the niche only to drop my four large rocks - lowered down as felt pumped and didn't feel confident enough to continue without these pieces. Had climbed quite well - head was good and footwork not bad - though found the steepness and distance a bit intmidating and perhaps needed to be back in the groove of regular climbing as was as dwelling on the difficulties somewhat

This was Chris's first ever lead, he had an absolute epic, stopping at half height for about 15 min, he was struggling to get gear in.
