286m, 12 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A route that is steeped in history, and the classic of the buttress, but it is frequently the scene of benightments! Start below the right-hand end of Heather Shelf.
1) 20m. Follow the groove to Heather Shelf.
2) 30m. Climb diagonally rightwards rounding two ribs. Just round the second, climb upwards to belay 4m left of a prominent spike, level with a dog-leg in the corner to the right.
3) 15m. Climb up to belay left of a quartz band.
4) 25m. Move right and climb the quartz band. The groove above is tricky and leads to moves rightwards to some ledges. Move onto the right-hand side of the rib to the right and climb it to a spike belay.
5) 33m. A vegetated groove up and right leads to a tall, thin plank-like block.
6) 33m. Scramble up rightwards to reach the Great Terrace - a large grassy shelf - and belay to the right of this below and left of a red wall with 'RW' etched in the base. © Rockfax

βeta: BEWARE there is an enormous spike on P4 of avalanche that is frighteningly lose (it moves significantly with light fingertip pressure). There is also a lot of lose rock generally on the route to treat every hold with suspicion. The grassy groove on p7 is disgustingly muddy and a frightening and unpleasant experience on lead.

fammer 3 Aug AltLd O/S Great day out, followed up with a walk over snowdon and crib goch. I lead pitches 2 and 3 together, 5, 7 and 8 together, 10 and 12. I thought pitch 10 offered the best climbing. Route finding was all ok until the last pitch, when I led up a loose slab with no gear, I think about 10m to the left of the true line. However the low point was when I accidentally launched my sandwhich of the belay of pitch 5.

john jennings 16 Jul AltLd Big and great fun. I thought Pitch 4 of Avalanche (The groove above is tricky...) was the crux. It's not really hard but the rock seems a bit friable. The famous Red Wall was much smaller than I imagined and gave nice well protected climbing. Most of Longlands, once you find the way off the terrace, is mountain scrambling. I led the supposed 4b final slab but this is not exposed and feels trivial.

SuperLee1985 16 Jul AltLd O/S Whew! What an epic day! This route had been on my radar for ages but never got round to attempting it until now. I lead P's 1, 4, 7, 8, & 12. Went left instead of direct on P12. Topped out in the sun to a stunning view! We ended up skipping 3 as George got a little lost on P2 and ended up belaying about 5m left of the belay for P4. Favourite pitches were 8, 10 & 12. Top half generally felt nicer than the bottom half with less loose rock. P4 would have been nice if not for the huge amount of loose rock.

Dave Mahon 23 Jun AltLd Epic day. Avalanche and Red Wall were dry. We moved quickly and most pitches were enjoyable with enough gear if you look for it. Started raining at the Green Gallery and we wasted a lot of time trying to relate the Rockfax guide to what was in front of us (rubbish explanation). The rest of the climb was in heavy rain and 10m visibility which slowed navigation. We went off route a bit but did the atmospheric final slab in heavy rain and high wind. Near hypothermic at the top and lost all sensation in my fingers. Descent in rain at dusk. Got back to the car at 11pm. A memorable mountain day!

Went into the wrong groove off the terrace, taking the one immediately to the left of where the route goes. Deathy 4b territory with no gear to speak of and no holds that were not at the very least hollow for 25m, HVS 4b sort of stupidity. Note to self, don’t go off route! The Rockfax topo and description leave something to be desired.

Pete_Frost 8 Jul, 2018 Lead Enjoyed P1. Red Wall P1 had some nice moves and the top slab was good, but very, very polished at the start. Beware of loose rock throughout, but especially from the Great Terrace upwards - even a pebble kicked from that height would seriously injure someone below. Cockfax Pocket guide is wrong on P9. Walk RIGHT, belay at the foot of an arête with an obvious jammed block a few metres above the belay. All belays are well-worn underfoot. Many use slings over spikes, and where they use nuts, the slots are well-worn. If your belay doesn't look like that, you're off route. A lot of the route isn't polished, so route finding means looking for rock discoloured by shoe-rubber, and worn vegetation on small ledges. If you're struggling to find the way, ask yourself where would you climb if you were wearing big boots with hemp rope tied around your waist and a shoulder belay from your second.

caradoc 10 May, 2017 AltLd O/S We started with the pitch on the right hand side of the Heather shelf, it felt a bit scrappy and unprotected for the first half, I began to wonder if I really wanted to do the route. Things improved on the second pitch, good holds and protection on the traverse although there are some loose spikes. Helen led the third pitch up good rock. The fourth is the crux with polish and slippery quartz holds, several of them loose. Once past the groove above the quartz it eases off to scrambling. Overall, reasonable at VDif but probably much harder in the wet, especially the first pitch. Red Wall. After a bit of confusion about where to go I found the traverse which was a bit longer than I remembered. The 4a move took a little while to commit to..probably severe, it certainly made an impression. Longlands also took a while to work out the start. It's on the left side of the quartz. The 'niche' described in the guide is confusing. The final wall is way harder than VDif (old guide) but I guess that is what you can expect on mountain routes, it's an overall grade. An excellent day's climbing with a proper summit at the end.

andrewmc 8 Jun, 2016 AltLd O/S Moving together. Led the second half of Avalanche, the first half of Red Wall and the final slab of Longlands Continuation. Avalanche was awesome until the last pitch (which was vague). The first pitch of Red Wall was excellent but quite tough. After this the route was marred by poor, friable and dusty rock and very vague lines that seem to bear only a passing resemblance to the description. The first part of Longlands (doing it as described up the left arête of a steep wall) is hard and seems to achieve very little as there is an easy looking chimney just to the left. I found the final slab both hard because of the poor dusty rock and extremely bold (and I normally manage to lace things that are supposed to be 'bold') - at one point I had a 10m runout while about 20m up... 3 stars for Avalanche, 2 stars for Red Wall (first pitch) and 0 stars for Longland's.

madasten 29 Aug, 2011 AltLd O/S An epic outing in the rain and buffeting winds and an interesting walk back down to the Llanberis pass in the dark. The quality of the climbing didn't live up to expectations although this may have been at least partly down to the general wetness. Protection was very poor on most pitches and there was LOTS of loose rock. A memorable day for the adventure and the situation (stunning views across the Snowdon lakes) but not really for the climbing unfortunately.

If you are on route, it's not vegetated at all. Final polished slab had some bold spice - a sting in the tail. Stunning views. Great Top Out!
