55m, 2 pitches. Classic route which is excellent value for the grade.

Start in the middle of central bay, to the right of the pit. Climb the obvious right facing corner to a peg out left at around 10m. Step left around to the arete and make a hard pull up onto the ledge. From here climb up on easier ground but with little gear, heading for the small tree and good wire placements. Climb the small crack up to the tree, and then traverse left around 3-4 metres until you can step up onto a ledge (bold but easy). Two peg belay and backup advisable (cam in a pocket out right).

From the belay stance step up directly to the obvious break, traverse right to a peg just out of reach, step up for the peg, then step back down and traverse around the nose to better holds. Climb up and left to a peg, and continue on to a small ledge. Traverse slight left and step up onto to a sentry box (peg) and then continue to follow the easier line until you reach two small trees on a large ledge (belay).

From here you can scramble further up and left over a series of ledges until you reach a bolt. Then continue the scramble until you reach the top, through the bushes you will find offa dykes path which leads back to the road.

Slick, polished holds and feet, long runouts between gear meant we lost faith after the first pitch, and which we then discovered we had not got high enough on. The moves right from the SMALL tree looked horrific and we bailed. Climb higher to the bigger tree then the route is clearer. Another time.

Nice climb. Starting in the corner made for a nice challenge. A number of places on the route felt exposed with minimal finger holds (but I was seconding so no exposure for me!). Walking off the top (back to Offas Dyke path) was precarious - you certainly don't want to trip up at that point! As mentioned by others, there's little gear placement opportunity on P2, just a few pegs to clip into.

Suffered a bit on this. I fell off on p1 after the traverse at the pull-up part. Climbed back up, using different holds and wasn't too bad after that, but it knocked my confidence quite a bit. I was supposed to lead p2, but Rob took over and did it, whilst I was calming my Elvis legs. Had to look for the holds and had virtually no protection apart from the pegs. Stay roped on after p2 for the final scramble, until you reach safe ground! Great climb, but a bit of a beast.

Lovely route, definitely exciting in places, mainly committing to the traverses. Once you commit they are fine. Slightly annoying that the peg on the sentry box is just out of reach of the ledge. I found the second traverse to be the crux, seemed a little short on handholds when going round the corner (I stretched for one that would probably be out of reach of most climbers. 1st traverse was quite comfortable and I didn't notice the 'hidden' hold or the powerful pull mentioned in the guide book. There was another exciting move at the lay-back flake as you approach the tree on the 1st pitch.

Lead P.1. Nice route, slightly unnerving in some of the blanker/ledgey/balancy (but essentially easy) sections, but good variety. P.2 felt easier, but wasn't on the sharp end. The scramble descent is good fun.

Milne 28/Sep/14 AltLd O/S

Led p2, went ok until after the 2nd peg, saw a third peg way up and right and headed for it. It quickly turned very bold, hard and blank, was most of the way into the E2/3, then followed a harrowing traverse round a bulge on poor slopers with no more gear to get back on route to the hidden peg. Never been so in fear of a massive fall past Dave on the belay ledge onto an old skinny peg, probably to my death. Should of read the guide book i guess!! Good route.

Fab route but 1st pitch was greasey & made bridging interesting. Great belay stance & traversy bits were awesome! Felt harder than any HS I've ever done.

Without a doubt, a 3*** route. Half way through pitch one there is a very committing and exposed couple of moves but the holds are pretty huge. Would highly suggest for someone who is becoming familiar with the HS grade range.

Lead on first pitch. Interesting 4b move at the top of the right hand corner. More technique and less grunt needed. Took the 2nd from Rob climbing on a twin ropes. 2nd pitch nice move around the nose to the second peg. Big ledge ample gear (and trees) at final belay point Exit to the top a bit overgrown (Rob and Joe Ab'ed back to bags) but easy to make headway. Place one nut at the top of the right hand corner for good measure Just behind the two trees where Zelda finishes. Nice few layback moves then scramble up through trees to footpath.

mullermn 17/Oct/10 AltLd O/S

Nice, not sure it's quite worth 3 stars. Seconded P1 with heavy rucksack, which made the initial corner quite tough. Lead P2, large sections of which are only protected by pegs. Pitch is probably HS if you trust them - if you don't it's much harder as there are some big runouts between natural gear.

Lead 2nd pitch. first 10 meters of first pitch is in an enclosed corner (v pollished) as soon as you exit the corner the climbing gets easy (ish) until the belay. 2nd pitch was not technicaly dificult but the 2 traverses give a good sense of exposure and the lack of gear makes it "interesting" Great route!

with Darrell
Dax 04/Jun/09 AltLd O/S

I led the 1st pitch, Ward led 2nd pitch.

Great climb. Corner start is a bit out of character with the rest of the route. I found that when the climbing got easier the run outs got longer .. on the first pitch there was a couple of times when I was about 10ft+ above last piece of gear (not what I'm used to on a HS but the climbing was easy at these points). I didnt mind, didnt want to spend ages faffing about. BTW I only voted for two stars as dont think the route was particularly consistent .. if the last 20 metres of pitch one had been a little harder but with more pro then I would have given it 3 stars.

In hindsight should have suspected that there may have been pro issues due to the number of pegs mentioned in the route description .. you don't normally have 3 or 4 pegs on an HS.

Note: Managed to smack my left knee on the last move of the entire route .. you could hear me cursing in Chepstow!

bit of a wibble on the initial corner. dave set off to do the first pitch and downclimbed, I went to the same point and downclimbed, some kind soul retrieved our gear, then as nobody appeared about to do the route I gave myself a talking to and had another shot, which all went well. Protection on the upper bit was not nearly as bad as I feared - sparse but sufficient. Tremendous route!

only the 2nd pitch

lithos 20/Jul/08 AltLd O/S

good route, though most of 1st picth is diff after the corner peg. 2nd pitch has some good moves, take long extenders/slings

Simon Caldwell 20/Jul/08 AltLd O/S

Carmen led pitch 1, a good honest HS. I did pitch 2, which felt like a sports route - what's the difference between a line of bolts, and a line of cemented in pegs?

The beta was because I did this route many years ago and always wanted to come back and do it properly. A very good route for the grade with some nice exposure.

Love it. Really nice HS. The crux is intimidating and exposed... on the face of it until you figure out that the lack of positive holds at the nose is not even relevant.... palm.... lean right and around the corner.... and smile as you easily locate the "thank you God" jugs that materialise around the other side.
