78m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fantastic, exciting and technical route.
1) 5a, 30m. Start as for Direct Route to where it moves left. Follow a groove rightwards to the left of the rock scar. Climb the left side of a flake, then traverse delicately right to a good stance under a small overhang, there is some better gear to the right.
2) 5a, 15m. Head straight up the right-hand side of the overhang to a good wire, and then make a testing traverse right under the overlap to below the chimney. Ascend the chimney with the help of the right wall and climb it to a small stance on the left in a thin crack.
3) 5a, 20m. Traverse right to a scoop, follow this and go right to a bold mantel onto a ledge. Go up (pocket) to a crack then onto a stance.
4) 4c, 15m. The main corner above is much tougher than it looks. Move up into the corner to where it gets hard and utilise the crack on the left to reach the top. This pitch responds best to a brute-force-and-ignorance approach. © Rockfax

Quick jaunt up this before the team beanometer hit zero and we ran away. A good route, though not sure it's a total classic. Some surprisingly technical slab moves, especially on pitch 3 which is rather bold. Pitch 4 is a hilarious sandbag - wouldn't disagree with those claiming 5b. Led P1,3.

First proper HVS I've done in probably about half a decade. Much harder than dream of white horses which I'd done a few weeks before. Gear felt thin and climbing wasn't easy. I lead pitches 2 & 4. Pitch 2 felt quite bold (taking the right-hand option). Hauling up on the loose jug over not very good gear was intimidating but looking back through comments, I can see that people had mentioned the loose jug 4 years ago so it's probably fine. Dan led pitch 3 with the mantle. Seemed quite bold too, although it wasn't really much of a mantle. Last pitch takes loads of bomber gear but was by far the hardest climbing on the route. Granted, my crack climbing isn't very good but I can squirm up a chimney. Not sure how I managed it in the end but reached the top feeling like I'd had an all body workout. Excellent airy climbing with a nails last pitch.

Lead pitches 1&3. Got to the crag and it was pretty obviously gonna rain so chose to do this route, bit runout in places but nowt too hard. Luckily we had just got off the abseil when the heavens opened! Perfect timing and another Hard Rock tick as well. Also for the 'crux' mantle on pitch 3 there's a bomber small cam slot in the crack to the left and the last pitch is probs 5a too, I ignored the jams and just blasted up the RH crack in a lay back!

Dave p1. Me p2, bit of a nightmare route finding... Went up about 10 metres above belay with no gear at all... Didn't know if to step left onto superdirect, continue straight up under roof or go right.. Not wanting to take a factor 2 onto the belay down climbed a few metres, then climbed right before heading up, seemed logical, good climbing and gear, although there is a big wobbly flake / jug.. After checking guidebook line does appear to go straight up from belay until you get under roof on left hand side and traverse right under roof to the groove?? Go figure... Dave did p3. Me p4, bottom bit okay, top bit harder... May of held onto a cam while I clipped it... Going to claim onsight anyway, just didn't want to slip when clipping it! :)

My first proper multipitch route and first time to Llanberis Pass. Definitely visiting again, one of so many wonderful lines here. The grade seemed bang on for a HVS overall but some of the technical grades for the different pitches where the wrong way round I thought, or maybe thats because I was exhausted by the last pitch. Thanks to George on route and Rebecca waiting bellow for their patience while I spent most of the day up there. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole Wales mini adventure

Alex led the first two pitchs as one. I led the second pitch and found the bold mantelshelf move absolutely fucking terrifying. So I exercised my route finding abilities to escape further right. I then led up to the final corner crack, got excessively pumped and came down to the bottom of it to bring Alex up. He led it and I managed a clean second. One of the hardest HVSs I've done.

Pt3 Andy - this climb gets harder and harder and is now almost a solo and the hardest moves yet, Pt4 Simon/Andy Ok so now the easier pitch at 4c, An awkward unrelenting corner crack, difficult to get onto and then sustained to a small ledge at 2.5m, I couldn't pass the protruding flake so belayed and Andy lead through (fell onto gear then finished and that gets 4c)

Awesome run out P1, but nice and easy for 5a. P4 is horrific, utter sandbag at 4c. Started at 7(pm) and down by 10. Maybe being able to see would have helped for the last pitch! Take 60m ropes if you want an easy descent.
