230m, 8 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the best and most popular routes of its grade in the UK. Start beneath the well-worn corner with the letters 'GA' scratched on the rock on its right-hand side.

1) 4a, 30m. Climb the tricky polished corner then make a move rightwards onto a slab. Climb this and continue up a crack, or the wall to the left, to the top of the rib.
2) 12m. Walk/scramble easily up left to the base of a long groove with a roof at half-height.
3) 50m. Climb cracks on the right-hand side of the groove past the roof, then step left into the smaller continuation groove which leads to a ledge. Belay on the next ledge a little higher.
4) 30m. Scramble up right to a path and walk along this to the base of a rib and the letters 'GA' on the rock again.
5) 4a, 50m. Start on the right of the rib and climb up and leftwards to gain the groove above. Follow this until a step left gains a steeper continuation-groove. Climb this with increasing difficulty until a move leftwards gains The Haven - a good ledge, block belay well back.
6) 20m. The infamous Knight's Move pitch. How's your chess? Climb the crack behind the belay to reach the chessboard slab above. Exit this slab by the top right corner, step round the arete to find a comfortable stance.
7) 20m. Romp up the corner above the belay to reach a good stance. An escape rightwards from here is easy if the weather is bad or darkness is closing in.
8) 25m. Head a little way right and climb the steep rock to a rib. Follow this to an ever-easing finish. © Rockfax

secander 12 Oct Lead dnf Got three pithes up before the persistent rain and cold sent us back. My partner couldn't feel her hands and the climbing was quite difficult soaking wet. I lowered my partner down the 3rd pitch, and rapped. The rope got stuck: it wasn't a dry-treated rope and easily caught around the rock. Thankfully there is an easy scramble (to the left) back up to the belay point so I went up and freed it. After that we simul down-climbed the remaining two pitches following the path of least resistance.

Having both done the route before and the weather being uninspiring we opted to scramble around pitches 2-4. Pitch 5 was interesting in boots in a waterfall state. Freed ropes and retreated to the car to return the soggy ropes to their extremely grateful owner and collect many bragging rights.

Misha 30 Jun Lead O/S Mock guiding day. Great route with plenty of nice climbing and only a bit of walking. Did this after Milestone Buttress and Continuation - was hoping it would be free but a team was just finishing P1 when we arrived. Managed to sneak in before them on the GA pitch (5 and 6 - best combined if going well, 50m is fine). Short roped P2 and the scramble/path bit of P4. One rope is fine. Apart from the 50m pitch, carried 10 coils, which worked well to minimise rope faff. Belays mostly quick and easy but the one above the Knight’s Move requires care. 2h 45m, felt like a decent guiding speed. Glad to see there was gear on the Knight’s Move slab traverse as it’s exciting to second, though the last piece is an upside down 0.3 cam. The holds are pretty good though. In big boots for the authentic experience.

Summited then descended via North Ridge in the dark. ‘Knights Move’ belay position was slightly exposed with little space, not quite a ‘comfortable stance’ as described. Pitch 1 and 5 has some good climbing. Pitch 3 had no gear so I ran it out pretty far. Pitch 5 was probably the crux (in the upper groove), however it was very well protected so made confident moves. Overall really fun day out, surprised the rain held off all day until we left. 8 hours car to car (descending in the dark took its time).

RBonney 31 Dec, 2018 AltLd O/S Great route. Neither of us bought QD's but we managed to make a few with some snap gates and slings and cordelette. I did P1, P5, and P8. All were good fun in their own way. P1 I couldn't feel my fingers. P3 I couldn't feel my toes, I thought my feet would pop on every move. Great climbing. P5 was soaking wet at the crux but what a brilliant pitch. P6&7 was great fun. The P7 groove was as wet as P5. P8 I'm not sure I went the right way. I think I did. It was fun if not mega mossy and wet. Overall a great day. Got down just before dark.

Pitch 1 was wet which made the climbing/squirming a little insecure although the route got dryer the higher we climbed, and i took a wrong right hand line at the top of pitch 5, which quickly got hard and required a few moves of tricky, mostly unprotected down climbing to get back on route again. The route had some nice pitches for the grade, just a shame about the broken scrambling in the middle.

There's interest in all pitches (except the scrambles - other than the view) and the two 50m sections have some amazing positions. Run out in places that only added to the feeling of being really out there - nuts are your friends especially a selection of offsets. Knights move is exactly that and rewarded with a wicked stance.

Pitch 6 fine, this is the Knights Move. A bit hairy but fine. Pitch 7 was a chimney, fine no probs. A little scary because of the hight/exposure. Didn't manage to get pitch 8 done, ran out of time, hardest pitches were done so not too fussed. Still having it. Got a fair bit of beta on pitches 1 to 5, lead pitches 6 & 7. It's a great climb and with gear/rock shoes will be really pleasant. In hindsight I wish I had my rock shoes too.

MD 8 Jul, 2017 AltLd O/S We had bit of a long day out today. Left home at 7:30, drove to Ogwen, arrived at the bottom of the climb around 11:30 and joined the back of a rather large queue.... The climb was a slightly surreal experience, I've never seen anybody haul a backpack behind them after leading on an HVD until now. On pitch five one leader went to "rescue" another and after helping had a smoke on a ledge while the "rescued" leader finished the pitch. We retrieved two wires and returned them to the group in front. I picked up a dropped wire from the same set which was in really poor condition with several broken wire strands. I took it home and binned it. After being on the route for 5 hours one of the less experienced seconds from the group in front started to become a bit upset with the exposure. We topped out in a cloud of midges at around six thirty. I think I led pitches 1 , 3, 5 and 7. On the bright side there were two pleasant groups behind us who we spent the afternoon chatting to under sunny skies in the beautiful Ogwen valley. In a final twist we arrived back at the car to find it had a puncture. I didn't fancy changing the tyre on the busy A5 so pumped it up. Thankfully the puncture was slow so we were able to limp to the nearby campsite. We changed to the spare the next day and drove to Bangor where Qwik Fit repaired it for £25.

This did not seem to deter us.... Coops lead the first pitch which was polished corner climbing and the scramble in one pitch. ( P1+ P2) I climbed the third pitch and the scramble after. Coops did the fifth pitch at which point it started to chuck it down- and we had to abandon the climb by abbing back down. There was a party ahead and party behind and we shared the abseil with the guys below us. Would be good to return and do pitch 5-8 in better weather conditions.

Started a little later than expected so despite the sun it was shaded, windy and cold from about P4 onwards. Jo lead P1, P5, P7, I lead P3, P6 & P8. Loved the top pitch despite the wind cold, and the Knight's Move (P6) although the subsequent belay was miserable. Descended down the North Ridge as the the most obvious path, wish we'd had time to scramble up to the proper summit. Took some time to find the bottom of the route so about 1.5hr in, 7.5 climbing and 2hrs out.

I lead the first 7 pitches - with both seconds climbing simultaneously on guide mode (really easy way to belay!), before it was too dark to do the 8th. The first few pitches were sopping wet, which made a few moves a lot more difficult than otherwise. Most memorable pitches were 5 and 6 - but Ania was feeling the exposure by then and needed some rope assistance. Scrambled off to the summit of Tryfan in the dark (I belayed my seconds once more as one section of scrambling was outside their comfort level) - before navving over to the path through Cwm Bochlwyd. When we arrived at Ogwen cottage we were greeted by the MRT! (the party above had called them as they thought we would have trouble with the dark ;) ). With hindsight would've chosen an easier route.

Accidentally ran 6 and 7 together having gone too high up slab on the Knight's move- led to massive rope drag up over a steep slimy ledge... Pitch 8 very pleasant finish.

Bilbo 5 Jul, 2015 AltLd O/S Sheltered from the Westerly wind on the East face, the first 4 pitches were great fun despite intermittent showers. Heavy rain transformed the steeper, upper section of the 5th "groove" pitch into a nerve racking canyoneering experience with zero friction on the polished footholds. But it went OK and the Knights Move pitch was good clean fun with the wind drying the slab quickly. Thereafter, pitches 7 & 8 were a joy followed by sarnies and a romp down the N ridge in warm sunshine. Great Top 50 route, well worth the stars. Probably Severe in the wet - add at least 1 numeral to 4c on P5 during heavy rain and take a snorkel! P1 M, P2 N, P3 M, P4 N, P5 N, P6 M, P7 N, P8 M.

BarrySW19 4 Oct, 2014 AltLd O/S A real day out! We did this one on a fairly wet day and the polished damp rock certainly made it feel a lot harder than HVD. The Knight's move was actually pretty easy with the exception of the step onto the slab from the crack with only a very slippery foothold to rely on. The previous pitch seemed far harder and was certainly my scariest lead to date. The Haven belay is well named. Got to the top in good time then got lost on the descent and ended up abseiling back down onto Heather Terrace just as it got dark, then had to walk off from there by torchlight.

Ran p5 and p6 together (they are 1 pitch in Rockfax) and nearly ran out of rope because we were climbing on 50m ropes, and Alaric had to remove some belay anchors for me to reach the block belay. Lovely route and great view when higher up. Really good value for money. Didn't get back to car till 11:20 though due to very late start and getting a little lost in the dark on descend.

Dan Simcox 6 Jun, 2014 Lead Great route and managed to do it in the dry! The most difficult move was a rock-over on the left foot at the top of the fifth pitch. North Wales Classics says the route is graded VD and I now see in the newer North Wales Climbs it's graded HVD with two 4a pitches. I don't think either of the pitches are 4a and I'd grade it as a hard VD. The North Wales Classics books also says it's a half hours walk in? No it isn't, with all your gear I'd give it an hour.

birks3746 ?Jun, 2014 Solo Had seconded it in the fog aged 9, nobody wanted to climb so I thought it would be a good one to run up. Going fine until it started raining on pt5...lost my bottle about 5 times getting onto the knights move. Stiff talk to myself and then got back in the game

LP 21 Apr, 2014 AltLd O/S Led 1+2 and Knights move. Mike led 3 and then the 'awesome' 4th pitch! Took a mate on his first outdoor climb - he said never again but the rest of us had an amazing day - sunny BH Monday with not another person in sight all day.Lovely climb with sustained interest and none to difficult. One to do again.

Lovely. Knights move and slab after were beautiful.
JamesColeman 18 Apr, 2014 Solo O/S The 'Knights move' slab and pitches before and after were really good but daunting! Although it was a solo it took around 6 hours due to heavy traffic: Lots of resting on ledges and taking in the views! Done in combination with Overlapping Ridge Route, Central Buttress descent and North Ridge descent. Massive, awesome day on the mountain in perfect weather.
