Rockfax Description
A classic and bold wall-climb that weaves its way up the stunning face right of Cenotaph Corner. Climb up to the leftward-slanting crack by an undercut at 5m. Follow this crack for 2m, then head up and right on good holds to the first ledge. Move up and left to reach a prominent spike and move left again on crozzly pockets up to reach the base of a slim groove. Follow this to arrive at the Girdle Ledge. Step slightly right, arrange crucial protection and climb the wall trending slightly leftwards to the porthole. Pass this, all guns blazing, aiming for a jug and the safety of the final ledge above. Pause and enjoy your position above the crux. Walk rightwards and finish up the crack. © Rockfax

Matt Amos 20 Sep Lead O/S Fewwwwww! A few things led to this not being optimal. Choosing it as the second route was not wise, and then having midday sun beating down on the wall didn't help. Started quite well, but spent a lot of time climbing up and down off the first ledge to place gear. Eventually made it up to the girdle ledge, where I had a little sit down and consult of the guidebook. Up to the porthole felt the hardest section and it was suitably scary seeing the gear disappear beneath. I reached the penultimate hold before the jug to watch my fingers peeling off one by one totally out of beans. Just managed to hold on long enough and get to the top clean. A very memorable climb! Thank you for a patient belay Jade!

Andy Peak 1 8 Jul Lead Had a route reading error past the broke pocket tried to reverse but I’d gon to far, jumped off after down climbing slightly. Lowered to the floor, had a drink and a chill for 10min and went up again, this time I got the correct path and went strait to the girdle ledge. Getting gear in near the porthole was fiddley managed to get two pieces in which wer only just good enough to contemplate moving on from the port hole a bigger wire wood of been useful. The porthole is not the crux.

JamesWilliams 6 Jul, 2018 Lead dog Heart broken. Up to the first ledge felt fine. Down climbed from the move just after the broken pocket 3 times after arranging gear and figuring it out. Powered to the girdle ledge and sat down. Totally enjoyed just watching everyone on the routes around me remembering all the great experiences I've had at the cromlech. James Taylor lowered me a bottle of water as I was rather parched. Pushed threw to the port hole. Took me a while to find any gear there but when I did I head off. Got to the side pull jugs and my foot didn't go on a hold properly. Wanger. Totally gutted pulled back on and whizzed to the top. Just means I get to enjoy it again. I did all the hard climbing and I got on a huge route for me so I'm super psyched. Big leap. Forward in my climbing. Don't save stuff to long just get on it! Life's to short

Stanners 5 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Pleased to say the least. I had no intention whatsoever of trying this as I was heading up to 'think' about doing resurrection. Someone was on it, so made the decision to give this everything I have. What an experience, quality bold climbing on a sensational wall. I hope this had opened the pathway to many much more trad climbing right at my limit. Thanks Alex for belaying and Reece for seconding.

Greg Cunningham 21 Apr, 2018 Lead rpt On sited 20 years ago but found it much harder today. The friend 2 pocket below the first crux was a bit damp and there was not so much chalk to follow, being early in the season. When I reached-up for small pocket/edge after the damp pocket my fingers were damp and couldn't crimp properly. Scuttled down to the spike for a gibber and semi-rest then spotted a dirty foothold for my left foot. Rocked-up using the drier side of the pocket and reached the crimp. Pretty pumped so lunged for a pocket which happened to be good - phew. At porthole near top had to try 3 different sequences before I found one that worked. Thrilled to have repeated such an amazing route!

James Oswald 2 Sep, 2017 Lead O/S Really pleased to do this after building it up in my mind for so long. Getting up to the first ledge felt very bold - falling would be a bag bad idea here. From the first ledge, I felt more relaxed. It took me a while to sort out gear. Getting to the first porthole was tricky and from here you need to keep climbing quickly to get to the second ledge. The moves from the second ledge to the porthole are tricky and run out. Took 5 yellow cams but only placed 2.. An amazing route!

shed_hed 15 Aug, 2016 Lead O/S It's been a long time coming but I finally got in it and it was fine. No chalk so was on the wall a while and had Rafe reading the description out several times to make sure I stayed on route! Had to work hard for the gear which was less than bomber most of the way with some harder moves a way above it. Felt fairly steady with a few stiff pulls but the difficulty was never too severe and plenty of opportunities to shake out if required. I went directly up from broken pocket to girdle ledge as I couldn't figure out the moves left and back right... Ace route on a gorgeous evening!

Misha 16 Aug, 2015 Lead rpt Nice to get this clean after falling off going for the girdle ledge last year. Think that time I strayed too far left from the yellow cam and ended up on Lord for a few moves. No chalk in the morning but Neil Dickson ran up it before me (I shouted some directions from Memory Lane as he couldn't remember where to do), so there was some chalk by the time I got on it and having done it before obviously helped as well. This time I went more direct from the yellow cam, past a rubbish sloping crimp - that was only one pull though and the holds got better after that so it felt easier this time (well, I didn't fall off!), though may be I was just less tired (last year I did it after a good day on Cloggy the day before and the Grooves in the morning). Still got a bit pumped in places so didn't exactly cruise it but nothing desperate. Long way off Lord though! Found what seemed like a good DMM red offset placement just before the Porthole - it resisted tugging down and out but was one of those unique offset placements which lifted out really easily when I stripped it on abseil (so now it's E4, ha!). Also placed a newly acquired skyhook on the finger jug at the Porthole for a laugh but it promptly fell off when I moved up! Needed a longer draw, something to weight it with and some bluetack! Again didn't find the moves past the Porthole any more than 5c, the moves to get up to it are actually harder but still only 5c. So just like last time I thought the crux was after the yellow cam but this time I did it in an easier way, still a bit of 6a though. 13 runners this time - plus the skyhook! Anyway, great route, definitely one for the 'desert island' list. Rach didn't second as she had an appointment to keep at the cemetery gates.

Also placed a newly acquired skyhook on the finger jug at the Porthole for a laugh but it promptly fell off when I moved up! Needed a longer draw, something to weight it with and some bluetack! Again didn't find the moves past the Porthole any more than 5c, the moves to get up to it are actually harder but still only 5c. So just like last time I thought the crux was after the yellow cam but this time I did it in an easier way, still a bit of 6a though. 13 runners this time - plus the skyhook! Anyway, great route, definitely one for the 'desert island' list. Rach didn't second as she had an appointment to keep at the cemetery gates.

Misha 22 Jun, 2014 Lead dog Disappointed to fall off on the hard section after the yellow cam. Strayed too far left into Lord as moving up from the cam looked hard (actually there's just one poor hold as I discovered when I did it clean the following year), hung around too long trying to figure out what to do, went for it, pumped out and took a decent but safe fall. Had a shakeout, got back on and pulled through but it was close! My excuse was I was tired after a good day on Cloggy the day before and the Grooves in the morning. Going up to and past the Porthole was fine though. The whole route was worryingly run out, including the initial traverse right, but the holds get better every time it starts to get exciting and pumpy. Mega! Wish I'd done it clean onsight - had to come back the following year to do it clean. 12 runners including two yellow BD cams.

Julian Cooper 28 Jun, 1994 Lead O/S Did this after sleeping under the boulders with the youngsters. Dave and his friend were on an ERT tour and I met them for a weekend. The date is a guess but I remember sitting on the top of the Cromlech at about 10am, first person there and had one of those transcendental moments. Amazing route and a lifetime’s ambition realized.

Seb Grieve ?May, 1988 Lead O/S Do a tricky move by good gear then run it out on big flat holds. My notes do mention that it was more runout than anything else I had done at that grade. The top was a little tricky but you just had to go for it.
