Rockfax Description
A very hard move guards the flake. Start up Void pitch 1 and move right below the overhang. Climb a tricky thin groove on the right to a niche, and high gear above. Some desperate moves back left may lead to the overhanging hand-crack which, despite appearances, is a push-over compared to the moves to gain it. Belay below the Void pod. Finish any way you wish. © Rockfax

Mega! Sam led the pleasantly slabby P1 - couldn't be more different to the steep and physical P2. Initial groove off the belay is worth 6a in itself. Steady steep climbing on good holds and gear after that got me to a bridged hands off rest to contemplate my fate. Too ages psyching up and trying to figure out which way to go. In the end, committed to the traverse undercuts (a higher traverse line featuring a good hold petered out into). Somehow everything came together and I did some of the best hard climbing I've ever done. Powerful moves off undercuts and fancy footwork got me to a hand jam / jug rest on the flake and gear. Above that, a few swift fingeocks and precise feet got me to the rest. Tricky moves to enter the groove, sideways grovel up the groove and finally another tricky move to escape up and left from the groove, avoiding a heavily vegetated section. It was getting late, we had done Snake earlier in the day and I has done Void before, so we abbed off the tree. Quality! Pretty touch for the grade...3

crux pitch only, finished up Void. Penduluming the crux is definitely fun!

International Meet. Finished up Void top pitch. Matic said he was glad he hadn't gone to the Lleyn again.

Led P1 on slab, 2nd P2 & 3. Done with Void top pitch to make a simply brilliant route. The sequence to the finger flake is very good and I was blown away by the Void top pitch: one of the very best E4s around. I found the initial pod / crack section of this tough: my technical inadequacies well-exposed here. Thought crux was though straightforward. A perfect pitch.

powerful traverse.

Mike Goldthorp 16/Feb/11 Lead O/S

Wild beast! Done in 1 pitch. Committing to the undercuts felt super steep and go-ey but well protected to the resting ledge. First E4 for a while, felt good to be on steep pumpy trad again!

Lead P1 - really nice. Nathan was just getting ready to start the crux roof section when the rain started, backed off and had lunch.

Kim led but his partner didn't fancy following it. I tied on and followed and Kims partner kept up the converstion with Kim - who was out of sight - as if he was climbing. Kim did a double take when I popped up at the belay.
