80m.

Rockfax Description
A long and very popular route most suited to those who appreciate an audience. The climbing is fairly tricky in places but the belays are comfortable and the views of the suspension bridge spectacular. Start on a sloping ledge at the toe of the buttress with good nut belays in a small corner.
1) 4c, 25m. Move up and step right to a small corner just right of the arete. Make some technical moves on sloping holds up the small corner, before it becomes possible to move back left onto the front face of the buttress and climb a narrow corner to a bulging arete above, peg. Pull awkwardly left around the arete and climb to easier ground that leads to a large belay beneath an overhang.
2) 4a, 23m. Skirt the overhang on the left before heading back right and following short walls and ledges up to another large belay ledge below an overhanging wall.
3) 4c, 25m. Pull left around the arete to a hand-ledge and make a difficult move up to attain a standing position on it. Move left a little way to a corner and climb up to a ledge. Continue up the wall above to a corner and climb this before trending slightly right to the top. © Rockfax

Dom Goodwin 22 May 2nd dog Slightly less ignominious than my previous attempt - this time, at least I topped out! Phil led up the left hand start, somehow executing a very trying move, where I repeatedly fell off. Arms already feeling destroyed barely a metre above the belay, I moved round to try the right hand start (where I repeatedly fell off in December) and managed it the first time with considerable difficulty. More trouble at the hard mantel move early on P3. Eventually managed it after a couple more falls by moving a bit left and helped by Phil belaying from where he could see me to give a helpful tug on the rope at exactly the right moment. Definitely feels harder than Suspension Bridge Arête and substantially harder than the many other VS routes I’ve done in the gorge. I don’t normally fall on VS nowadays, certainly not repeatedly...

Dom Goodwin 11 Dec, 2018 2nd dnf This proved too difficult. Seemed considerably harder than some other VS routes I've done lately e.g. Piton Route. I plan to come back in warmer drier weather - and maybe better personal conditon too! I eventually struggled up P1 after several falls from the early difficult move. P2 was more amenable, though not entirely straightforward with slippery holds on the initial slabby wall. The mantel onto a sloping shelf early on P3 seemed desperate, and tired arms and numb fingers didn't help! Tried quite a few times, but eventually backed off leading to an interesting very brambly abseil retreat with my 90m rope jamming several times, but eventually we got down just before dark, intact with no gear left behind.

Started raining pretty hard when I got to the top of P2, so we sheltered for half an hour deciding whether to bail or not. After 10 mins of sun the rock was dry again so I swung round the corner - it is quite a move for the exposure! After the first section it's easy and unprotected. Top out was an undignified crawl up slippery wet grass in front of bemused tourists.

After few meters at the beginning of the second pitch I mistakenly tried to go up the overhang, until I realized the rout goes up left. Climbing with few Kg in the bag training for the Alps, but on the ledge next to the balcony I had problems balancing and standing up. Ditched the bag with Nathan, the move was way easier and probably the most satisfactory of the whole route.

Despite nearly succeeding in fishing it back up with the nut key I managed to drop it again. Luckily landed on another ledge so belayed Win up with an Italian hitch and she picked it up on the way.

budchawla 8 Sep, 2012 AltLd O/S Nice route - exposed & fun. Slightly polished at the start. Laurence led P1, I combined P2 & P3. Ran out of the 50m rope at the top (as anticipated) - so I used the 60m rope to get the belay around a tree at the fence. Strange to top out amongst all the tourists and walk back through town! Tips: Recommend combining P1 & P2 for a nicer start to P3, the step around the arete would probably feel friendlier if your belayer wasn't miles away out of sight. 60m ropes recommended if combining pitches. Also - avoid bringing anything but climbing gear to the route. Scrambling back up & down to grab packs is a major pain. Very sunny, bring water.

Nice route - exposed & fun. Slightly polished at the start. Laurence led P1, I combined P2 & P3. Ran out of the 50m rope at the top (as anticipated) - so I used the 60m rope to get the belay around a tree at the fence. Strange to top out amongst all the tourists and walk back through town! Tips: Recommend combining P1 & P2 for a nicer start to P3, the step around the arete would probably feel friendlier if your belayer wasn't miles away out of sight. 60m ropes recommended if combining pitches. Also - avoid bringing anything but climbing gear to the route. Scrambling back up & down to grab packs is a major pain. Very sunny, bring water.

ashley_sandeman 1 Aug, 2011 AltLd β 2nd April 11 - Excellent climbing with plenty of on-lookers to cheer you on. The slippery start gives way to some nice open climbing and great views. Lead pitch 2 and 3. It helps if you have a bit of height on the second pitch start, and it's plain sailing in the final pitch with some great exposure, leaving your second plenty of time to grandstand for the audience on the avon suspension bridge to the point where they call him the "hero of the climb", despite the fact you lead the bloody thing (still bitter about that)! 1 Aug 11 Climbed again with "The Norfolk Machine", this time taking the first pitch on lead and seconding P1&2. Two hours enjoyable climbing. The opening pitch starts with a slippery outing and thin gear, but opens up after the first few metres to reveal good gear options. If there's a peg at the top of P1 I didn't find it but there's an excellent crack just waiting to be loaded with gear for protection in any case.

I simply couldn’t find A) any gear B) the route C) reserve energy on the direct line up. Anyhow took my longest hardest lead fall around 10-12 metres lob and fell through a silver berch tree ripped out two small branches, ripped my gear loop which had 4 hexes, 4 quick draws & a sling. Most dangling in the tree out of reach. Retrieved later that week Feet pointed outward so stubbed my toes, black nails, puss & blood. Realized I couldn’t stand on my feet any longer, abd off. Anyway limping at the bottom we laughed it all off & realized I couldn’t compress the clutch (left toe worst off) struggled to get myself home (very late & in trouble with my wife & was expected to walk the dog on one foot.

Gear is a bit sparse in places, often where you would most need it, on the technical moves. Cave window on the 3rd pitch is a bit surreal, with the tourists about 10 feet away as you set off to climb the pitch. Felt as hard as some HVS routes elsewhere. Take some cash so you can buy ice cream and visit the camera obscura at the top.

Heaved myself up in do it or die moment. Be a while before I try that again! but hey scenic.
