Rockfax Description
Quite simply one of the best pitches in Britain; good gear, great climbing and an amazing position. It is also one of the most fallen-off climbs in the Pass due to overenthusiastic leaders going for it when they aren't quite ready. Fire up the initial steep crack, passing a surprisingly tricky move where the crack dog-legs right. Eventually gain a semi-rest below the grand finale - the leftward-slanting thin crack. Follow this, fighting the growing pump, to a line of slightly-crumbly juggy flakes leading horizontally left to the arete. Finish more easily up the arete. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An aspirational climb which defies most superlatives. One of the best routes of its grade in the country. Protection is superb, even at the top section provided you are strong enough to place it. Approach the vertical crack from the right and, after a tricky start, follow it without difficulty to an awkward section where it bends diagonally right. From a good rest, lace the soaring white crack with runners, take stock and make progressively hard moves until a line of ricketty flakes leads leftwards to the arete. Those with enough stamina in reserve might consider finishing the last 4m direct at E3 5c.

So happy to finally get this done, been talking about it forever. Misread the crux but managed to downclimb and sort it out just. Then messed it at the top, left the nuts below me and had to just run it out. Nearly committed to the E3 top without realising before seeing the escape out left. Fair to say I was bricking it but finished it off. Such an awesome route!

Awesome, harder than i thought it was going to be. Basically an e1 up to the the white crack. Mainly big holds, but it's a wall so feels steep if you stop in the wrong place. Mini crux as the crack goes right took a bit of working out. Thin crack is ok and safe, but sustained with mediocre feet. Was tired by the top, scuttled left on the flakes!!!

Everything I hoped it would be, I didn't do a warm up route so settled for a few stretches, needless to say I was pretty relieved to discover how good the rest notch actually is. Climbed half the final crack, got a couple of good nuts in and then down climbed for a rest (past the jugs all the way back to the notch). Composed myself for 10 or 15 mins and then gunned it to the top only stopping to quickly slot in an alien. The direct finish looks fun but I didn't want to blow it so close to topping out, so scurried off left for the E2 finish.

gutted.... the climbing is very easy (peak 5b+?) but I failed as I didn't warm up & it was freezing cold! Hands warmed up as I hit the final crux & I realised i'd been overgripping all the way up! Climbed a few harder routes lately and arrogance cost me this classic. Incredible route!

Enjoyable process to manage the ropes, the gear, the moves and crucially, 'the pump' - making sure there was something left in the tank for the top bit. The sunshine helped too.

And on the eighth day, God dreamed up the idea of having rocks for man to climb and dutifully created Left Wall as his masterpiece! Climbed as a true ground up experience, four years after an obviously disappointing fall from top section with lower off. Very naive on tactics & strategy.... This time things were very different. In fact, i almost couldn't believe how easy it was! Utterly, utterly classic and absorbing througout!

Gutted. Approached the climb all wrong. Placed too much gear and got pumped and gripped. All the hand holds are reasonable and none of the moves are desperate but it's very sustained with no big rests, and some poor foot holds add to the difficulty. Underestimated it and got spanked. I'll be back for it clean next year. At least I had the pleasure of watching an elegant climber master Right Wall.

It had rained heavily overnight but the rock was drying in the morning wind, so we decided to slog up to the Cromlech to have a look. Mark didn't fancy the Gates in the end, while the Corner was soaked. Left Wall looked dry though so I decided to give it a go. Enjoyable, steady HVS 5a (short 5b section?) to the fork in the cracks. Fortunately the crux section proved to be easier than I had feared. Found lots of half-rests and hence managed to lace the diagonal crack - seven nuts from start to finish, 18 pieces in total. Great feeling getting to the easy ground on the arete. Still feeling the previous day's slate sport routes so had plenty of rests and took an hour to do the route. Mark did an excellent clean second. We had the crag pretty much to ourselves, just one other team on Dives. Now need to find another Snowdonian classic to dream about!

Got the big very brilliant pitch which just keeps going but never too difficult.....moderate gear placements (11'ish) real jamming until the end just laybacking off the flake....the little traverse at the end seemed to pop up sooner than i expected and then it was over.....trick is to take all the rests you can get along the second E2, so the grade seems fair....although no one move is that hard (excewt for the last bit of the crack as it slants out left)....defo 3 stars!!!

Kev lead, but took a mean fall at 2/3 height. I made an amateur attempt to climb it. Awesome sustained climbing.

Also April 24th 1988 without incident. Had climbed in 1965 in the style of the day using some aid and on drilled out nuts. On gaining the top I held onto a very large spike (then present) to lean over to tell my second I was safe - spike failed - I fell 40 feet snapping the line runners on the top section of the route. Spike missed my belayer by good fortune or we might both have come off badly - he of course was body belaying in 1965 (Tony Clark). Also lead with John Hubbard and second to Charlie French, Graeme Smithy and others.

Lead in good style on my second attempt - first some time earlier when confidence was lacking. One of the best experiences ever (it was still hard in those days!) and I must admit to being sorry I repeated it 3 or 4 years later, being forced to rest on a runner due to unfitness - a shame to taint the memory. Never go back!
