95m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fascinating outing that takes in plenty of exciting situations and has some surprisingly difficult moves. The first pitch is at the top of the grade and care is needed to protect the second on the traverses on pitches 3 and 4. Start at a short, well-scratched thin crack.
1) 4c, 26m. Climb up past the crack and continue in the same line to a peg and a couple of good nuts just above. Gain the ledge above via a perplexing move before heading left to a short corner that ends at vegetated ledges. Various belays.
2) 4b, 10m. Above are two corners right of a big blank wall with bolts in it. Climb up the right-hand corner a metre or so and move right out to the arete and flake-crack just beyond. Climb the flake-crack to a good ledge in a corner up and left. Poor belays.
3) 4b, 15m. Climb out right and make some awkward moves diagonally rightwards to a perch on a small ledge. Step down and right and move into the wide corner-crack which is climbed to a ledge belay. It is probably wise to place a runner in the diagonal break above the belay in order to protect the second on the traverse.
4) 4b, 20m. Follow the exposed left-trending diagonal breaks with good gear and holds to a tree belay.
5) 4a, 10m. Climb the corner above the tree to the first overhang, pull left to an easy gully and finish up this, © Rockfax

I'd say run pitches 2+3 together as per the new Avon guide, ignore what Rockfax say. 2+3 are on the same trajectory anyway and the p2 belay is bad enough to be dangerous. The two traverses are some of the best - in-balance moves and unlikely holds! Can also make all pitches 4c quite easily if you wanted! Top-end VS for sure with the exposure and committing moves.

Bobling 18 Nov, 2012 AltLd Another Avon VS off the list! Had avoided this one for a couple of years though as I know someone who had an accident at the top of pitch one. This was the technical crux I thought (hard 4c?), but protectable. Pitches 2 & 3 OK with a few awkward moves, pitch 4, the psychological crux, was a romp as it turned out - Avon at its best. Pitch five was a whimper, not a bang which was a shame.

Chris Sansum 13 Oct, 2012 Lead rpt Ended up leading the crux traverse 3 times after second didn't fancy doing the technical bit unprotected (swing there if second falls off is nasty). So rigged it up as a backrope and went back to retrieve gear afterwards. On next pitch heavy hail came down just as I was setting off. Retreated back to belay. Luckily it dried off eventually and we finished the route. Nice day out repeating an old classic!

Some parts are a bit scary to solo, like the small traverse right and the long traverse left, it actually feels safer to do it the less efficient way and keep your hands in the deep groove along the top which is basically campusable.

Did not enjoy the first part as I was feeling dehydrated and a bit dizzy in the heat, and had to aid with the rope for the harder sections. The main traverse pitch is really nice, though!

LucaC 30 Aug, 2010 AltLd O/S Ben lead P1 no problems. I ran P2 and 3 together but accidentally went off route by going up the wrong 'shallow groove' whilst making my way right. Ended up terrified on one of the two E5 routes either side and had a really nasty half an hour down climbing and sorting myself out. The actual route is nice and very obvious once you reach the P3 belay ledge. I think the correct route goes up the left of the large ivy patch and then immediately down over the top of it on the other side. Continue down about 2m to a very obvious ledge where you can then move right and up to the belay. Ben lead the P4 traverse which would have been really fun had my arms not been giving up after the previous encounter. The crack on the fault line is a bit flaky inside and is also full of shrimp like rock crustaceans which are unpleasant when they get in your face. Final pitch is more of a scramble at the top leading to a belay off the railings of the park above.

royal 3 May, 2010 Lead O/S Great climb. Our second climb outdoors after trying some small ones at Sennen last month to learn how to use the ropes and gear. Combined the second and third pitches and found this the hardest part, maybe due to route finding. Spent ages before I realised I'd gone a bit higher than the first traverse and was releaved when I found it! The exposed traverse back across on the fourth pitch was stunning but felt a lot easier than the third despite the guide books grade. Protection for second needed to be thoughtful.

diggers 13 Jul, 2008 AltLd O/S Took in terms to lead, did not climb last two pitches due to running out of time! Great climb, the section just before the traverse at the top of the thrid pitch is a little hard to protect, but not impossilbe! Lower sections are a bit "overgorwn" in places but a pleasent climb over all.

Humpty Dangler 30 Mar, 2008 AltLd rpt A route that meanders like a drunk trying to find his way home. Led pitches 1,3 + 5. First: surprisingly difficult; hard to protect in places. Second: has the wonderful step out around the arete to the flake. Third: I placed two solid wires high on the left before attempting the low traverse. Should have placed a hex on a long sling in the crack at the right hand side to protect the second from a major pendulum if he'd fallen; will do so next time. Fourth: airy traverse has lost none of its appeal. Fifth: placing a wire in the only available crack and found it to be full of guano was probably not the high point of the route. After that the pitch turns into a muddy scramble to a belay on the railings.

Humpty Dangler 6 Oct, 2007 AltLd O/S Wonderful route, varied and exposed in places. Each pitch had something to offer: highlights including the tiptoe out into space on pitch 2, the delicate balancing short traverse on pitch 3 (poorly protected - the only runner placed to stop the second penduluming into the monolith fell out), and the superb 80ft traverse of pitch 4 (very well protected and with good hand-holds, still requires a steady head). Can't wait to come back and do it again.

lundyman 29 May, 1994 Lead O/S 1st climb I've lead without previously seconded. Start close to Morpheus, later belay at top of Morpheus chimney, but rest is different. Highlights are: * 3rd pitch - a descending traverse down to top of Morphius chimney (foot traverse with few/no handholds or pro - just as bad for 2nd). * 4th pitch - rising traverse along obvious break. Good jamming & pro but feels exposed. Best climb I've ever done (on 29/5/94) inside or out. Did again on 14/10/95 with Dave O'Conner. Lead all way again. This climb is brilliant, and I found it a stroll. I used hanging belays so I could watch DOC's face on the traverse (p4) - he was scared!
