52m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The easiest of the three E1s, but no push-over. The route can be split in two at the girdle ledge, but is best enjoyed as one of the finest 50m pitches in Wales.
1) 5b, 35m. Climb the slab up and left to reach the base of the wide crack. Enter the steep wide crack and follow this to reach a good resting ledge at 18m. Climb direct to the Girdle Ledge.
2) 5a, 15m. Step right and follow the crack to easier climbing on the arete.
2a) The Grim Jim Finish, E2 5b, 15m. Fire up the crack directly above the belay. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A popular and celebrated route that has not suffered overly with polish and is protected well throughout. P1 5b Starting from the trees, move up right for a few metres before stepping left to the base of the crack/chimney. Move up (a long way!) on good holds that only falter slightly at the crux, to the left of the main crack. Belay at the Girdle Ledge in a fantastic position. P2 4c From the belay, step right to wide crack. Follow this to its top, step right around the arete and follow the incuts to the top and a tree belay in 'The Valley'.

Joe's lead. 1st route of the day and his head just wasn't in it. All in all, it took him 1h 30 mins. He got to the Girdle ledge pumped out of his mind, yet still made the decision to go for the Grim Jim finish and inevitably dropped it near the crux. After a little rest he made short work of it. Absolutely brilliant climb. I can't wait to go back and lead it. None of it felt hard. Good holds, good gear.

Round two. Got right up to below the crux and ran out of puff. A couple of sections are quite confusing and although a lot of the holds are 'jugs', they often feel quite odd. Found moving up onto the ledge at 18m harder than the upper crux. As I bought Will up, Alex Honnold was warming up by soloing left wall!

Very good indeed. Consilation prize as some one was on the corner. I led p1, which has so much gear and jugs on it. Never hard, loads of rests, and then a brilliant belay position on the wall. Take lots of slings, and save a number 6 hex for the belay.

What a fantastic route. Good holds all the way up and gear just where you need it. Led in a single pitch on 50m doubles (just had enough to clip the belay). Found 2 or 3 tricky sections but nothing too technical. Being a grit monkey my fitness let me down a bit, not used to 50m pitches but luckily there are plenty of rests. Favourite lead to date, brilliant climbing, great position & loads of exposure - was smiling all the way up.

A very exposed hanging belay if you choose the two pitch option. You are really pleased after you do this climb, and the abseil down the Cenotaph Corner area really introduces you to right wall of Dinas Cromlech.

First mountain E1. Was pretty intimidating and spent a long time being sure of the moves. Was freezing cold on the girdle ledge. Seconded pitch 2, which is a lot easier than the first pitch, probably VS.

I got the main pitch with Al doing the top bit. Great gear but save a little finger power for getting up to the Girdle Ledge. The stump of the old holly provided a runner! Repeated with John Hyde in about 1992, again leading the main pitch. I would like to runout in one but my rope would need to be longer. Then again, the belay is one of the best exposed in Wales!
