Rockfax Description
A wonderful adventure spiralling across some impressive terrain with tremendous exposure on P1. Not a good route for complete novices to second.
1) 20m. From the base of the sloping ledge under Cenotaph Corner, climb polished flakes up and then leftwards until an airy step down (small threads to protect the second) reaches a ledge on the arete. From here move left and up to reach the ledge known as The Forest - usually a congested belay stance.
2) 22m. Climb up left to the steep crack. Pull up this to a ledge and climb the easier slab on the left to a sloping belay ledge.
3) 25m. The wide crack gives access to an easy slab. Walk along this and ascend a large groove on the right to finish. © Rockfax

Ivan led p1, I went too high on the traverse, had to backtrack and got rope jammed. Had to then climb up from below to free it, in a nice airy position. Then led p2, went too far up the crack (up p2 of Dives/Better Things) to the next ledge. Realised I'd gone too far and had to down climb, which was fun!). Reasonably easy route turned into a bit of an epic due to poor route finding, but all the more fun for it. Fairly straightforward after p2! Ivan led p3.

IWasJack 14/Jul AltLd rpt

Second time on this and STILL went up 'Foil'. The Forest isn't the most inviting stance so just climbed past it. Again. The amount of exposure is still surprising. Huge grin on my face stepping out on P1. P3 is a bit of a nothing.

Led all pitches. Felt like good value at VDiff! Perhaps naively, I wasn't expecting so much exposure, but almost started to enjoy it by the end. Climbing never felt harder than VDiff, except for an unintentional diversion up Better Things! Ned didn't fancy leading when we got to the bottom of p2, so I ended up leading all 3 pitches.

As we started first pitch it started raining heavier.. thinking that it's not too hard it would be okay. jesus, that traverse step down move was terrifying, super wet and reaching around the corner to fell more wet and no holds i thought it would be a solid ground fall if i peeled off around the corner.. my second was too frightened to climb the corner so he headed straight up the crack. second pitch was almost water falling so i led up Sabre Cut vs 4c, that was fun!

Notable was complete mess up of finding the start ("Pitch zero - led by me") - climbing up bits of rock, plus ivy and thorn bush. Pitch 1 route finding - traverse almost immediately rather than going up high. I led pitch 2 - really nice. Sunny day. Wouldn't fancy the polish in the wet.

1st pitch to base of wall is an easy scramble. 2nd pitch I went a bit high making the down climb greater. Didn't go far enough round (and so made a very exposed belay) into the forest, -it has a dead tree in a crack which once you know it you can't miss- plenty of room for belay. 3rd pitch up the tree crack and then left was most enjoyable section and a final scramble to upper walls and then around the back to descend gully beside Flying Buttress.

Stupid Keystone Klimbers 'direct start' to the base of pitch 2 up dirty steep vegetated ground. Ugh. Nice traverse pitch 2, bold start to pitch 3 quickly easing off.

One of those University climbing club freshers meets where you sit around getting cold and wet waiting for someone with more gear and more experience to lead you up something. I can't remember anything about the route - just the waiting around and the cold wind.

In the rain, in Super RDs and with big sacs. Part of a 'round trip' started because of poor morning weather in the Pass. Ended up doing Dolerite Dump, Slow Ledge, Reade's Route, Snowdon summit, Spiral Stairs, Dives, and Sabre Cut.
