Rockfax Description
A stunning route which follows the long, thin crack-line right of the corner of Vulcan.
1) 15m. As for Vulcan.
2) 5b, 35m. Climb steeply past some fangs then up the technical groove above until just below a roof where it is possible to swing right around the corner in a great position to below the crack. Climb this all the way to an 'elephant's bottom' finish. © Rockfax

The starting section getting up past the fangs, the groove above and then turning the corner is absolutely nails hard and very thin! I was starting to feel sandbagged big time by the Rockfax guide by the time I got to a decent rest. Climbing gets slightly easier after but is completely sustained, very nearly fell off on the final 5ft of easy laybacking to top out! Satisfied to see that it's regarded as E2 on here, pretty much confirms what I thought at the time. Brilliant route, highly recommended to anyone operating at hard E1/soft E2

Would definately recommend to anyone solid at the grade.

Fairly low down the E1 graded list in North Wales Rock but I thought it was fairly hard and sustained for E1, though with some good rests. In fact it's E2 5c in the '89 guide. A physical start, technical bridging, exposed but easy pull round onto the face, then three mini-cruxes, with a sting in the tail in the form of an offwidth finish. The peg seemed ok but didn't clip it as adequate other gear is available. One of the best single pitch E1s I've ever done.

Ace route, I thought it was quite hard for the grade!
monsteratt 7 Nov, 2010 Lead O/S A (more exciting than it should be) scramble for p1. Start of the main pitch was the crux was hard, but OK once I worked out where I needed to go and fairly close to peg. Some good holds on the middle part then a couple more interesting moves at nearer the top. Good value for sure

Alan100 31 May, 2010 Lead Ignoring the first pitch (as that's just a way of accessing the real climb), it's got great balanced moves with plenty of variety and enough gear not to be too worrying. Consistently interesting with a nice technical feel. Worth every one of it's stars (and then some).
