I've adopted a new philosophy of not saving classics for too long and just getting on them, although in this case I should've waited for better conditions! So so wet! Every hold was wet and the crux was the wettest, making it quite the battle. Great route but I think I prefer Cem Gates. Now on to Left Wall :)

Rachel went first and said it waS pretty easy; I knew it wasn’t! It’s really steady (5a max?) to near the peg then gets much harder quite quickly. Surprised the peg didn’t turn to dust when I clipped it, good wires not far above though. Probably should have tried to bridge more, found the crux slippery and commiting and quite pumpy! Missed the cams and tried to persevere up the slippery square crack. Good stuff. Amazing line. Not easy for e1

Gutted I slipped about one move before the crux. It was still fairly wet, but not sure that's a good excuse...

manwithacam 25/Jul/15 2nd

This is a great climb, aside from (or despite) the history and fame. Excellent bridging moves, nothing too easy, a few moves out onto the wall and back in again, really good fun. The corner crack was wet which makes the climb significantly harder, as jamming and laybacking not as easy. The crux is pretty spicy, as is the move into the niche. All in all, some technique required! What a great route on one of the best crags I've ever visited.

Great line. Much nicer climbing than it looks from below as you can bridge a lot and there are lots of good handholds to sides of the crack so it never feels thrutchy or off width. Crux high up. Rest steady.

Bridged up the whole route, in control, maybe arrived at crux a little too relaxed and slipped off unexpectedly whilst exploring the holds. Got back on and finished it. Better than last time I tried it many years ago when had to ab off from crux as it was going dark! A great route, will enjoy doing it again some time, maybe will do it clean one day!

Finally finally managed to get on this - and got it clean, but feck me it was a close one. Thought I was making nice work of it, then got wedged in a painful bridging move in the niche. Harder than the rest of the route, and right at the end. Managed to summon the willpower to do it - somehow. Pretty certain it was only desire and complete refusal to fail that got me up the last 10ft.

jsmcfarland 20/Apr/14 Lead dnf

Watched Oli do it on lead and so I had to lead it too once he had abbed down and retrieved the gear. We had some trouble with the ropes getting stuck and then some blokes faffing around at the top who took 30 mins unfreeing them. By then I had gotten cold and lost my psyche but had a go at the climb anyway. The crack swallowed all my gear and I had hardly any left by the time I made it to the bulge (horrible crux). I tried the crux twice and then totally lost my nerve and ended up threading the fist-sized chockstone with some tat and lowering off of that. Scary! Quality route though. I'll do it clean next time I'm here!

Got above the crux with both hands in the jamming crack above the pudding bowl when my foot slipped off. No energy left after that so it look several goes more to get up it. Top bit is quite difficult as it is several moves of 5b leading up to a 5c move and then a few more 5b moves. With no real rests. Route felt very long. Top didn't seem to get any closer for first 15mins of climbing!

jamesgodwin64 15/Mar/14 Lead dog

Buggered it up at the very top just one or two moves short on the crux... all I needed was 15 seconds of rest and sent right after but that was my fault. An awesome route a must to get on, can be a bit of a head game if your not used to 40m routes and well above road side.

Epic route and a real classic. Climbed in light rain as i couldn't bring myself to walk away from it again because of bad weather. Nice variety of climbing styles and bold moves around the crux. Hands kept slipping off wet holds at top, gritty determination and a little cursing kept me on the rock. Still smiling!!

Excellent corner-shuffling followed by a crux that was a bit of a wake up call as it was about two grades harder than the rest of the route and wasn't over till I got the finishing jug. The bottom third of the crack was seeping but apparently it often is - wasn't really an issue though as didn't really have to use the wet holds.

Some love this climb, others do not. Some think it is underrated and others think the opposite. The route is what it is, and each person has their own point of view, but it is undeniably iconic, and to me is very important as it provided me with 17 years of inspiration. Now I have led the route a monkey is off my back. Protection superb, situation excellent, history is all there with the peg, pudding stone and all those moves you have heard about. Go enjoy it.

Great route to do if you find this grade intimidating. The crux is so high - if you motivate yourself to get up near it, you won't be tempted to back off at that stage. Also the crux sort of creeps up on you: by the time you realize you're on it it's as good as done.

If you like your climbing wiht LOTS of gear this is it. Take the lot, you will get it in. I got 18 runners in! Why carry it if you're not going to us it? The climbing is superb, the position excellent and the sting in the tail is the move from the notch. Has anyone else bridged out of it? I am no jamming fan, and too chiken to layback but will bridge anything. E1 5c is bang on the button. Was amazed how good the rock still is given the years of heavy traffic. Be there early (0700 in June) for that reason, plus you get the early sun and won't boil.

Did this with Barry Linsey & thought it not as good as Cloggy Corner done the previous w/e. Unbelievably most of the climb is S/VS but getting in & out of the niche is much harder!

I did it with one point of aid to get out of the niche (the guidebook had 2). The top of the crack I found very hard. My brother John went straight up to do it once he'd heard I'd done it. A very memorable day.

Used peg for aid. Very tiring. Last 30 feet climbed one move at a time with long rests between moves.
