Rockfax Description
The better of the two E1s, Nexus is an absolute classic and is a good stern test for any aspiring E1 leader. The rock is superb throughout.
1) 6m. Start as for Plexus, but belay on the first large ledge.
2) 5b, 30m. A long, sustained and superb pitch. Follow the slab just right of the large corner to the roof. Hand traverse leftwards under the roof to the corner. A bold move out to the arete gains a thread before pulling round the roof via the good layback-crack and gain the diagonal ramp. Follow this up and right to gain a sloping ledge on the right. Follow the short crack to a shallow groove - all quite technical and demanding - to a good stance just right of the huge roof (junction with Ten Degrees North).
3) 5b, 30m. Climb the slab on the right until the angle steepens, then move left onto a ledge. From the left end of the ledge traverse left along a horizontal break (tricky) to a swing round the arete. Belay in the scoop below a detached block on P3 of Plexus.
4) 4b, 20m. Climb the rest of P3 and then P4 of Plexus in one. © Rockfax

Even better than I remember. Done at an leisurely pace which say us doing the last pitch and the abseils in the dark without head torches. Sitting on the belay ledge below the traverse and seeing the north side of the pass lit up by the light of the full moon is a memory that'll stay for a long time. Magical.

Ran the scramble up straight into the first real pitch. Also ran the traverse round the arête pitch and the romp up to the ab station together to leave a rope more above the traverse. Having done the epic walk down from Plexus the previous day we tried the ab instead. 70m ropes got us back to the ground. 60s wouldn't have. Exceptionally good route.

Led P2 cleanly - a great pitch with sustained interest. Getting up the arete and over the overlap is interesting for the short. Fell on the crux of P3 - should have crossed-over with my left in the good hold and put my right in the slightly greasy, very polished finger-tip slot before swinging out with my left for the huge jug on the arete. I'll get it next time when I lead 10 Degrees North. Safety tip: run P3 and 4 together up to the in-situ abseil tat and use double ropes. Your second won't swing so much, and grate the ropes over the arete if they come off on the crux.

The most cackhanded climbing I've done in a long time. Guidebook description is of dubious value, made a belay in what turned out to be the middle of the main pitch on a ledge that was barely worthy of the name. Spent the next hour untangling the horrendous spaghetti we'd made of the ropes. Climbing was hard in places, harrowing in others, but amazing throughout. The route is a blinder, but take the guidebook description with a pinch of salt and run the first two pitches together.

Double Knee Bar 11/Jul/14 2nd dog

Bricked myself on third (trav round arete) pitch. Grabbed the qd clipped to the in situ cam, then saw the state of it. Tiny old HB thing thats heavily corroded at the lobes. Yelped a little with the rope trailling round the arete with no visual of the next pro.

Ran into two pitches. I led the top one (guidebook pitches 3 and 4). Found the traverse straightforward, but seconding the lower main pitch quite tough - wasn't ready for the sustained smearing. Felt quite hard for E1. There is an ab point at the top of the route, and if there is no-one on ten degrees north or the top pitch of plexus it is worth knowing that you can reach the ledge near the bottom from here on 60m ropes, then down-climb the first few metres of the routes.

The slabby pitch was great, never desperate but tricky enough and with some committing moves, though the gear is pretty good. The traverse, which Tom led, has a hard section which is ok if you get the feet right. I was quite conscious that for some reason Tom hadn't put any gear in straight after the traverse! Led P2 (the slabby pitch) and P5 (only a scramble after the mantleshelf just above the belay). Had a horrible time descending a disgusting gully. It seemed to match the guide book description of a stone chute about 150 metres W of the top out. However the 'easy 40m abseil' referred to in the guide book was nowhere to be found. Did a 30m ab off an in situ sling (very Alpine) to get over a steep, slimey section that had a stream running down it. From there scrambled down to the base of the crag. Without a doubt the most unpleasant descent I've done in the UK. Not sure if it was HS (horribly slimey) or VS (very slimey). Perhaps HVS? Descending Jammed Boulder Gully is probably equally unappealing, so I'd recommend taking your trainers and walking off round the side past Craig y Rhaeadr.
