Rockfax Description
One of the great Welsh Classics, with the other of Cloggy's great lasso/pendulums. Start about 30m right of the base of Eastern Terrace, where a small broken pinnacle leans against an overhang.
1) 5b, 25m. Climb up and off the pinnacle and make a delicate traverse across the lip of the overhangs to a groove. Move left again into an often-wet groove and follow this to a ledge and flake belay. Quite a serious pitch so place all the limited runners you can find, your second will need them! It is possible to leave a sling on a low spike to back-rope the second.
2) 4b, 20m. Climb the groove and slab to the base of the main upper slab.
3) 5a, 30m. Move up the slab briefly and then make a diagonal traverse with difficulty to the arete (Linnell's Leap in reverse). Climb the arete to a spike, move right and take a thin crack up to a flake. Head left round the rib to a groove and move up to a belay. © Rockfax

Teappleby 23 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S Cloggy, cloggy, cloggy. Stunning all the way and another one of the lifetime list. Led pitches 1,2,4,6. Pitch 1 has a bomber rp mid crux, so isn't as bold as people make out. I climbed free as I was throwing rope at the wrong thing, only saw the spike afterwards (it's right over in the corner, not the crack), sad about this as it sounded fun (I'll just have to go back and do it properly!). Although getting back to beris at 23.30 was not what I planned. Who gave Ellie a double set of micro wires?!

Not quite OS in the modern style the route is usually done but didn't really detract from the experience at the time but guess I'll do it again sometime as it is it is sooooo good. Great first route on cloggy Finally!

cdpuk 23 Jun, 2016 AltLd Mid-week bivy near the tarn in perfect summer conditions. Woke to blue skies, sun and excellent visibility. Full on from the start with that traverse. Some route finding "assistance" from Rob had me lead the slab direct, without going around the corner and using the lasso. Shame we missed one of the highlights of the route, but it did mean we had one less pitch to do and perhaps I can take E2.5? :)

Misha 8 Jun, 2013 AltLd O/S Drove over in the morning so didn't set out from Llanberis until midday and then set up camp for the weekend, so didn't start the route till 3pm. Took head torches just in case but in the end didn't need them! A perfect blue sky, nice and warm in the sun and only slightly chilly on the longer belays (didn't get any sun on the route). The crag was absolutely heaving with people - must have been over 25 teams there. We caught up with a team that was ahead of us after their leader took a while on the crux and then another team caught up with us. A great route with a memorable crux on P1 that I led (a few bold 5b traverse moves which are worryingly low down but high up enough for it to hurt if you do hit the ground, though not sure if you would, didn't try to find out!) and another memorable crux on P4 that Phil led (5c padding in a sea of chalk - part of the difficulty was figuring out which holds to use as there was too much choice but no really good holds! we both padded rightwards and then moved up into the groove but some of the other guys went straight up and right). A really good 5a slab/arete on P3 as well. The 5a slab on P5 is on the whole easier but has its moments as well. Spent a while on the crevasse stance at the bottom of P7 due to communication difficulties as Phil did a 50m pitch to just about get all the climbing out of the way. Led P1, 3, 5 and 6. Glad of taking the approach shoes for the descent! Had dinner at the tent while enjoying the orange glow of the sunset on the crag - magic. Didn't see any lassooable spikes (not that Phil needed it) - unless that's meant to be the large pointy flake miles away from the crux?!

I climbed the 2 long 5a slab piches either side of the 5c pitch.Seconding the initial traverse on pitch 1 was serious and very scarey. We had a bit of a route finding issue at the top of pitch 2; the Clogwyn guide has a very poor desciption saying to go into Gecko groove for a metre or 2.....you need to climb 5m up this groove to bypass a very difficult bit of the slab. All in all a fantastic route. The 5c crux is ok and there is no need to lasso the spike.

AlexD 4 Jul, 2011 AltLd O/S Finally made it to Cloggy! Seconding traverse on pitch 1 was very dodgy, didn't want to take the gear out, but then it fell out so that was sorted! Amazing positions on the slabs above, right on the edge with the cliff just falling away beneath. Lassoing the spike on the crux pitch seemed unlikely, didn't even bother trying. Only a couple of 5c moves, but potential for a huge swinging lob! Top pitch unnervingly loose, need to be in a soloing mentality! Adventure!

benkelsey 25 Apr, 2011 AltLd O/S we made a bit of a mess of this (6 hours) due to route finding and general fannying around. Totally freezing too. the crux move on pitch 4 felt doable but horribly commiting, backed off and seconded it instead. pitch 5 is one of the best E1 5a pitches I have ever done - just perfect and it lead to a massive belay ledge - better than the hanging belay at the top of the previous pitch.

On pitch 4 you come around the corner, place the wire, look for the spike and ....... Has it gone? Just did it free anyway. I'm sure this is easier than the spike move. Told some friends and its almost as if you havent done it properly if you do it free! Anyone know any other routes with this reverse ethic? This is a corker though. First rock route of the year too.

Paz ?May, 2000 AltLd The 4b second pitch on this is a real nemesis of mine. After I eventualy lead that bit, our friends had an epic and took a bad fall over on Longlands and were both helicoptered off. We were 2 or 3 pitches up and thought it best to finish the climb (we were both in trouble later for having left JH waiting in Bangor A&E for 7 hours ). I'm not sure I'd ever retreated off of a cliff that big at the time. Carrying two climbing rucksacks down from Cloggy remains the most physically demanding thing I've ever done in my climbing career.

lycraintheloft ?Jun, 1983 AltLd O/S Done first time in 83 when the peg on first pitch was in good order. Last done 2003. The peg had rusted out making the intitial travers that bit more interesting. Thin move with a thin wire for pro with a nasty potential landing. After the climbing does not deserve E2 unless you miss out the lassoo. The traverse to the lassoo spike is not too hard if slab climbing is your thing. If it isn't, lassoo (gather a big load of rope and lob it at the spike then take in gently. If you try to lassoo it like a cowboy you'll be there all day) the spike then get your second to pay out one rope while taking in the one round the spike and do the traverse. See, not that hard was it. Anyway, the two higher slab pitches are some of the finest most exposed such pitches anywhere at about 5a/b. The top pitch is more grunty but juggy. It is an absolute classic and especially entertaining if climbed as a party of three.

mikej 15 Jun, 1968 AltLd This was my first visit to the Clog, and we had no guide book or route description. The plan was to find the queue for White Slab and follow the other teams. It was a fine Saturday and there were well over 100 climbers there, including queues for all the popular routes. We traversed the crag base until we found 2 teams queuing for White Slab. However there was a hold up as an injured leader was being lowered down. He had taken a long fall involving a loose flake on one of the easier slab routes. After attending to the walking wounded casualty the 2 teams chickened out, but they did let us view the guide book. I led the first 2 pitches, but as I arrived at the belay at the top of pitch 2, a leader on Linnell's Leap fell off twice before giving up. We were now just behind an experienced party on White Slab, who had lowered the injured climber, and they (Cowburn and Mathews) provided route finding advice as we ascended behind them. Geof led the first long slab pitch, I led the lasso pitch (third attempt), Geoff led the second long slab pitch, and I led the last two easier pitches.
