4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A magnificent climb that builds to a stunning and very exposed crack pitch on the headwall.
1) 5a, 15m. As for Vector.
2) 5c, 20m. Climb up, then pull left and tackle a short steep groove left of a jutting nose. Urgent moves through this lead with relief to a small ledge and a groove shared with Nimbus. Follow this to the Vector cave stance.
3) 4b, 10m. Continue along the same diagonal line to a belay below the headwall.
4) 6a, 15m. Head up a crack and step left into a small groove. Move up this to gain the crack in the headwall. Charge up this and make a powerful move out left to improving holds leading leftwards to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The exposed top pitch up the middle of the headwall is sustained and out there but well protected and not too hard technically if you don't let the exposure get to you. (Using 150ft ropes & careful rope work it is possible to do the first 3 pitches as 1 with very little drag)

treesrockice 14 Jul AltLd rpt Retro flash but only to the Vector cave. Ed put in a good lead on P1 and I fought my way through P2 but Ed reignited an old injury seconding so I lowered him to the ground and ab'ed off. Left two wires in as I couldn't retrieve them on descent. Will be back!

George_Surf 11 May AltLd rpt p1+2+3 in one big odyssey. Low crux up the groove is ok, STILL find the overlap on Nimbus as hard and more committing! Nice long line to the hanging belay, enjoyed climbing it on good but spaced gear (9 draws plus some cams). Rach did a mega job doing the headwall, even after going left out of the crack and using some non-holds, I really thought the whipper was on! The whole thing is an awesome bit of climbing

rachelpearce01 11 May Lead rpt Wow don’t think I’ll ever forget this fight! Never tried so hard in all of my trad routes I’ve led; and maybe even sport! Really messed up the crux, had 3 goes climbing back down to rest on the jug below the last gear. Recovered quite well on the jugs (I’m sure my sport fitness helped), and on my final attempt I still got it all wrong holding non holds and all wrong handed and footed. Can’t believe I managed to hold on and power screamed up it (the whole of tremadog mush have heard). So happy to do it though. Shame it’s not technically an onsight as I seconded George on it last year, but it felt like that as I’m terrible at remembering routes!

Misha 11 May AltLd rpt As good as I remembered it from 5 years ago. This time led P1-3 in one big pitch (fine on 50m ropes with lots of extenders) and Mark took the crux. The official P2 has its moments but nothing desperate. The crux proved harder than I recalled but may be that’s fading memory or just that I did it late season so would have been fitter. Actually reading my log I didn’t cruise it last time either! The crux is definitely punchy but short lived and good footwork pays dividends, as ever. Top effort from Mark.

George_Surf 20 May, 2018 AltLd O/S Led p1+2 together, the steep groove is and there’s a cluster of wires before the move. I still find the crux of Nimbus the hardest/scariest bit with directional tiny wires protecting precarious moves! Rachel led p3 and belayed below the crack. Amazing headwall pitch. Steep and pumpy but some good rests. Climbed up for the gear and got a red cam in the high slot, came down for a breather and then went for the top. First e4, awesome (probably e3 though?)!

Misha 21 Sep, 2014 AltLd O/S Brilliant! The second pitch (which I combined with the first) is really good, with exposed positions and lots of interesting 3D climbing. Lots of rests and good gear but you have to go for it in between. Fortunately it yields to bridging so you can mostly stay on your feet. Solid E3 5c. I led the first two pitches in one to the slightly cramped belay seat in the cave. Ed then did the short ledge shuffle to the base of the crack. Easy to start, then gradually harder with balancey moves to get stood up on the "ledge", which provides a good rest. Climbed up a bit from there, placed a cam, it looked hard above so climbed back down. Up again and it wasn't too bad, another bomber cam in the next slot and it's the crux. Great move up to get a so-so finger lock but higher up the hold is rubbish! Reverse the move, hang around (because I can), up again, work the feet up (as ever) and get a good hold higher up just before breaking left. Breaking out left is a line of jugs, a bit footless to start but the hand holds are good enough and soon enough I'm on the top :-) What a great route and not that hard for E4 if you're fit. Thought the second pitch was the best as it's got some wild positions but the headwall is good fun as well and thankfully a bit easier than it looks!
