If Lord of the Flies isn't bold or hard enough for you, the line to it's left should satisfy. Sustained technical climbing, long runouts, iffy gear and a desperate high crux should test all but the toughest mettle.

Ticklists: The best the UK has to offer for beasts (apart from the lakes cos its always wet).

Mega! Amazing route. Fell off around the crux a couple of days ago. Managed to do it unexpectedly today as I bumped into Nick and he lent me his rack and gave me a catch. Didn't manage to fiddle any of his kit into the middle section but gunned it to the girdle and wobbled my way to the top. Almost fell off every other move in the top section, awesome experience! 4th ascent?

In a oner. Bit damp at the top. Unless we have another indian summer week will probably be spring now before getting on lead. :-/

Tried from the bottom this time. OS'ed all of the House of God bit which has a bold start, and then pumpy & finger but safe section to the girdle. Got sequence for the crux sequence and did that a couple of times.

Utterly amazing. As classic a milestone as every other route in the cromlech 'open book'. 6 sessions, 4 lead attempts. Finally went when I changed my sequence on the crux to a more delicate, reliable method. Climbed in the rain. I got to the girdle ledge without a crucial wire so I untied and dropped a loop to retrieve it while waiting for the rain to stop. The final sequence was intense with so much going on, heading towards an inevitably soaking, slopey top-out but I had to do it. Mind blowing experience. E8.9 6c/7c++ R.

Had a little look last year but lowered in again to reopen account. A really hard move up near the top. Probably safe ish overall though.
