Rockfax Description
A brilliant route with a bit of everything and best enjoyed as one mega 50m pitch. Start at the base of the gully, as for Christmas Curry/Micah Eliminate. Either solo or rope-climb the first pitch of CC/ME directly up the gully/chimney to a belay directly below the right-hand side of the arete. Climb a short corner (or come in higher from the right) and move left to the arete and climb this via a steep crack to a sloping ledge. A short groove leads up to another ledge (possible belay to reduce rope drag). Struggle up the wide crack above then move right to V-notch in the arete. A precarious move over this leads to easier climbing up the arete. © Rockfax

Damp then drizzly then rain. Led first pitch in damp, Mark seconded well in rain then led through in rain, eventually backing off from notch before top move - with definite potential for insult to dodgy ankle. Traverse into Christmas Curry and abbed off.

DeaNomNom 25/May Lead dog

Lobbed a good 10 meters off the sloping shelf after the thin crack, no need for it either, ran it out too much, landed cleanly below the tree canopy missing the ledge, (maybe the run-out was not such a bad thing then). A sore ankle, I will return. my first fall on an E1, no gear popped. Did the wrong move!

If only I had known that I was in for a pumpy one! There is no denying that this is a brilliant route. Ended up having to rest on gear trying to make the initial traverse round left onto the arete and then it became a war of attrition after that. I AM coming back to do this clean as the route is totally worth it.

A fantastic route, such varied climbing, great sections on committing moves above ample gear. Started by coming in from higher on the right to then cross the crack, as stated in the climbers club guide (the thin crack read optional for the E2 version of the route) This start still presents its own problems with no gear until you reach the corner and maybe more in keeping with the grade, my second went up the corner crack and seemed to think this was a lot harder. The rest of the route is committing, the V-groove was highly delicate, as for the big crack just get your knee stuck in. Lead the whole route.

Prob best single pitch climb I've done. A steep crack, thin moves to the arete,a delicate groove, an off width and a v.tricky move left at the top!what else can 45m throw at you? Early fall at start, then all ok. tough for grade.

Fantastic route with such varied climbing! Led it all in one pitch and was scared all the way up and cursing Dougie for recommending this as the first route of the day! The bottom crack was a stiff start but the rest of the climb still felt hard.The groove felt bold but apparently I missed lots of good gear. Took a while to figure out how to get past the offwidth, went right in the end, and was later told that was the hard way. The step left was hard to commit to.

An unusual and rewarding route. The initial crack and getting established at the first rest was more challenging than anticipated. Then the heavens opened and the rest of the route was climbed in the wet although it started to dry towards the top. For some reason I only took 10 quickdraws 5 of which were hastily placed at the initial crux, making the following 30m quite exciting. Felt harder than Cemetery Gates or Ivy Sepulcher.

Found step left at the top of the crack somewhat committing, the rest was absolutely brilliant. It's a fantastic route, and will be one of my favorites! I'm well made up!!

Guidebook description sums it up - stunning. One of my favorite routes, its got everything! Starting crack tough, moves out of it bold (couldnt get in position to place good gear in the layback flake), groove delicate, crack thrutchy, arete just awesome. A big lead. Managed with 12 draws (all I had) but there were several sizeable runouts.
