Rockfax Description
A classic route that weaves an unlikely line up this fine cliff. Start below the right end of the quartz pavement where an easy grassy ramp leads up and right.
1) 15m. Climb the grassy ramp to a stance.
2) 25m. Climb up 3m to gain the quartzy ledge. Saunter along this to belay under the groove at its left-hand end.
3) 4a, 35m. Climb the groove for 10m then trend right along a crack to reach the tip of the pinnacle. Step left and climb the slab above to finish. © Rockfax

Wizzy 8 Sep Solo O/S The quartz traverse is a harrowing pitch to solo. I’d imagine it would be bold to second or lead anyway but at least you wouldn’t die. Not one to take Anna on

Giles Davis 24 Aug 2nd O/S Simply class! The downward traverse was something I will never forget. When I got near to the belay I asked my mate how he'd navigated the big detached block. Ride it like a horse he said, so "au cheval" it was. However when I got near to the end of the block the "saddle" got sharper and sharper until I finally caught my ball sack on it. Had to go back and let "sack pain" subside before trying again. Managed to pinch testis again so once again went back. Third time, I managed to find a couple of thin crimps and a side pull and made a balancy move to stand up on the block itself, much less painful. Third pitch was great as well. Climbed after Mur yr Niwl. Brilliant day out. Got off the hill with head torches on.

DMCT 14 Jul Lead dnf Great route! Abbed down to the second pitch. Lead from there. Quick nerve racking given my lack of experience with exposure but managed to struggle my way up the first quarter of pitch three. It eased significantly afterwards when I reached the off width. Ran out of gear and ran out the last 8 metres on the slab. I'll finish it when I can lead via from the ground via the VS route. The way it should be done.

Misha 3 Jul AltLd O/S Tim was dying of thirst in the sun after Aura so nipped up this to get water from the sacks before going back down for Griseofulvin and Pinnaclissima. I led P1 and P2 in one for speed and Tim did P3. The sideways sloping downward traverse quartz ramp on P2 is pretty wild at the grade but can be protected with a few low cams and the odd wire. Stance management before that pitch requires some thought - probably belay off the spike at the top (backed up) and leave clients on a ledge just below.

That quartz pavement is surreal, feels like it's sloping in about three directions at once and I couldn't get my head around how serious it was/wasn't. Couldn't decide if I was being overcautious and a wuss for not just skipping along no-hands (I didn't!)
