Rockfax Description
A popular climb with a great second pitch. Start below the chimney of Shadrach.
1) 4c, 32m. Climb up left over ledges to a scoop and groove to the right of Grim Wall. Climb the groove on the right over a steepening to a small ledge on the right. Move up again to a flake (on Shadrach) then step down left. Move up and then traverse left again to a corner and ledge.
2) 5a, 25m. Go up and right to a small roof and move left round this to a small ledge on the left. Move up and right across a scoop/groove heading for a peg. Move up to the peg and make a hard move right to the end of a small ledge. Move right along this and head up and then right to finish. © Rockfax

What a stunning climb!! I led P2 - and what a fine climb it was! I found arriving at the peg the most daunting move to make (it seems others had too, judging by the polished placement just before it), and then the supposed crux wasn't too bad and just kind of worked (make sure you clean your shoes). Counting this as my first proper HVS lead :D

I attempted this on 2009-01-11, but backed off immediately before the crux (escaped to and finished on Grim Wall). This time I lead it in one big pitch fairly fast (as the time is pressing on). The traverse move immediately after the peg was a hard 5b move for me, as I shortie can't reach the crucial side-pull, whereas most people, including my seconds, (easily!) can.

One of the best pitches of rock I've ever done. Chose the cam rather than the pocket hold. Definately HVS like the guide says not the VS its given on here.

Done years ago but worth repeating - nice slabby climbing with a bit of an overlap to make sure you're awake ;) went straight up from the peg this time for a higher traverse. i'd say HVS either way.

Led pitch 2 after Sam took an alternative, higher traverse line on pitch 1. Brilliant climbing in an awesome position. The holds just appear when you need them most. The crux requires a bit of gumption (and faith in the peg).

PeteH 19/Oct/08 AltLd O/S

Glad to see everyone agreeing it's HVS! Tricky enough route finding. First pitch very nice to second despite wandering line; led the second pitch in howling wind and rain, which made the crux move past the peg feel pretty dicey, to say the least, and the last move incredibly scary! Not a good wet weather route.

The peg could be pulled out with your fingers so held it in place as I did the crux.

In those days there was still a peg for aid which we did not use I am glad to say.

Intimidated yet fascinated by the photo of Ron James on it in his 1970 guidebook, we then watched Chris Bonington climb it, stopping mid crux to blow his nose! We knew there had to be holds! and thus inspired we climbed this fabulous route, blowing our noses on cue of course!!.
