155m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
E1. A great mountain route. Start below the long groove which goes the full length of the face. A full rack is required, and the route can be done in three huge pitches if required.
1) 5, 25m. Climb the corner to a cave which has a bolt belay.
2) 5, 25m. Continue up the corner to another bolt belay.
3) 5+, 30m. Follow the corner to a peg. Move right across the wall (a devious move) to a good ledge and bolt belay.
4) 4, 25m. Move up then follow grooves and cracks leftwards to belay back in the main groove.
5) 6a, 50m. Climb up to another ledge and a possible belay. Move up to the roof above then a hard move right leads into a corner. Up this, then left to another corner which leads to the top. Abseil off from here or the pillar above leads to the top in four more pitches (grade 4 ). © Rockfax

great last pitch! Felt like we were going to get blown off the mountain on the descent.

Wow what a belter. Did in three big pitches. Interesting and varied climbing throughout. Bolted belays but still retains mountain trad feel. Can't recommend enough.

Abbed off after 3 pitches, started too late and moving too slowly. Led P1 and found it hard, would agree with previous comments of it being hard for the grade, or maybe I've just got a sore ego!

Superb top pitch. Couldn't find the peg before the 'devious step left' but the ledge is pretty obvious.

One of the best E1 multipitches I've done. Interesting sustained climbing on all pitches. Felt hard for the grade but the glut of fixed gear on the crux detracted from the thrill. No need for those pegs! Lead all pitches, the last one is a monster!

Amazing route, 5 excellent pitches with sustained climbing, no polish in an excellent position. Grades seemed a bit off to me, felt more like 5+,5,5,5+,6a+. No bolts on the climbing, just bolted belays. Crux felt hard, but very safe.

gingerbex 28/Mar/16 2nd O/S

P1 felt like 5+, maybe 6a. P3 5, p4 5+ p5 6a+

very windy, almost blown over on the approach, on the route it was fine. 4th pitch was no walkover for a 4....

Exciting 6a pitch, also not sure if missed the last belay / ab point, but found a load of tat of a big block & small thread at the end of the route, glad we took some tat to leave, all other belay points bolted

Great route would really recommend. Steady climbing through out, found the crux managable but pumpy.

Needed a full trad rack as only belays bolted. Also did in 5 pitches as had to re-use cams.took 5 hours including 3 abseils to return.Top pitch ok, just delicate, but good pro.

Four solid 5+ pitches then a strenous roof and corner followed by a completely "out-there" move onto a nose. Brilliant route.
