244m, 11 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the first routes climbed on the cliff, and a real mountaineering adventure. Start below and left of Heather Shelf.
1) 20m. Scramble up to the left-hand end of Heather Shelf. Traverse leftwards to the second rib and climb it to belay beneath the big corner.
2) 27m. Climb the corner until it is possible to step left onto the prow. Follow this to a big vegetated ledge.
3) 30m. Climb the broader rib above to another, larger heather-covered ledge.
4) 30m. Climb the wall rightwards to reach the vague chimney on its right-hand side. Ascend this, and follow a quartz band rightwards to a ledge.
5) 23m. Scramble up to belay on the left end of the grassy ledge, beneath the Horns - a prominent clean buttress of rock.
6) 20m. The groove in the centre of the wall leads to another, steeper groove. Climb this until a hard move rightwards leads to the base of the slab below the Horns.
7) 8m. Climb the polished slab. From here 100m of exposed scrambling leads to the summit, it is best to break this into 25m pitches, unless you feel happy enough to move together or solo 400m off the ground. © Rockfax

Binder 1 Jun AltLd O/S Entertaining but perhaps not the highest quality route. It was misty and the rain had just stopped when we arrived. The route was not only wet but very dirty and slimy. Some good climbing and nice pitches but the slab on p6 was pretty harrowing under slime - I pulled on a hex to get up it.

Ian Stirrups 2 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S Last climbed many many years away. Started up the wrong rib - Sue, in error, did a fine lead of the first pitch of Yellow Slab HS/VS 4b. After that got back on track. Route description re pitch length higher up seem wrong I did 3& 4 together comfortably on a 50 metre rope, but pitch 5 is way short. We didn't climb any grooves on pitch, rather a rib (well marked). However if you start in the right place just follow the polish. Harder than VD - polished slab (a crack) is 4b ish but could be frigged and pitch below 4a. Good mountaineering day in almost perfect weather (too hot!)

Abu777 3 Jun, 2018 AltLd O/S Climbed as a three, alternating leads. Took 7.5hrs bottom to top, plus the walk in and out. Mainly pretty straightforward, used two different guidebooks as having two route descriptions helped with route finding. The crux pitch is the 'polished slab' pitch towards the top. Definitely notably harder than the rest, would probably stand alone as a Severe, maybe Hard Severe if it was a crag route. I bypassed a larger slab split by a crack above what I believe is the 'polished slab' mentioned in the guidebooks, by going up a thin gully to the right of the large slab. Challenging, but well protected. A cracking day out - really feels like you've climbed the full length of the mountain!

Northern Star 3 Jun, 2018 AltLd Fairly easy ground up until the last couple of pitches, but then the corner and slab pitches above are fairly desperate. Scramble off above straightforward but quite loose in places. Fair amount of loose holds and general choss add to the excitement.

Dom Goodwin 18 May, 2018 Lead Absolutely brilliant route. Just as good as the Tryfan East face routes. Did it in rock shoes (not sure I’d fancy it in big boots; it was hard enough without!) Dumped my sack (mid pitch! ;-)) for the hard crack and swing onto wall and then also for the following cracked slab (the crux sections). I used a combination of rockfax and Steve Ashton guides, and found the rather notorious route finding was actually not that much of a problem (apart from starting P6) by using both! P5 is more like 30m and the rockfax description for P6 isn’t great. I followed the polish until I came to the hard crack, as described in the Ashton guide, then knew I was in the right place. For any prospective V Diff leaders wondering about doing this route, I would describe myself as a confident V Diff leader, and I found this route challenging but reasonable. HVD seems about right. A couple of moves maybe 4a, but the hard bits are fairly well protected. The protection is very sparse on some other pitches, so confidence is important. Took 7 hours on the route.

First pitch description on Rockfax may not be the easiest way - easiest to scramble up the second rib direct. Final slab pitch looked hard in the wet, so traversed round left and went up the cracks, which was not easy either. The 100m of scrambling above is exposed in parts.
