90m, 4 pitches. A fantastic sustained climb, covering impressive territory at a reasonable grade. Start up the bridging corner capped by a roof, about 10 metres right of King Kong. Climb the corner, good wires and a peg, to the roof (peg) and make a difficult move right onto the face. Follow the best rock and holds more or less straight up the face, past a peg, heading towards a flake crack in a white wall. Peg belay on a ledge above the flake crack. Make a difficult move off the ledge, up and right towards a peg, and continue to a bulge with a downward pointing peg. The 6a crux follows, well protected by an in situ thread once you've got high enough to clip that. This section can be passed on the left at 5c. Traverse right into the start of the chimney and climb up for about 5 metres to a comfortable belay in a cave (ignore the deep, narrow cleft lower down the chimney, though it makes for a memorable belay if you so wish). Climb slightly up the chimney and transfer right onto the face in a sensationally exposed position. Aim for a break in the vegetation above, past a peg. Carefully scramble up the earthy section - roots and branches come in handy. Belay at the base of the final headwall. Follow either of the two crack lines in the headwall, the right hand one is 5c per the guidebook and the left hand one is 5a, with a short traverse right where vegetation blocks the way and a final layback to the top (although the 2007 guide book suggests going left at 5b (up a corner, swinging left to an arete and final mantel) rather than right).

Stickle Tarn 1 Sep Lead O/S Lead all pitches on-sight. P1 has two distinct cruxes; the first provided by an insecure side-reach (up and right) from directly under the roof - just keep stretching out, a little more, you'll know when you've found the next hold! P2 starts with an awkward move to gain the blunt arete, and then flows into the 'disgustingly polished bulge' - choosing a cool weather day to tackle this, and an enjoyment of sloppers will prove beneficial. Final pitch as per the 2007 guide book (go left, up a corner, swinging left to an arete and final mantel, 5b) - this was an awesome pitch in its own right and provided a pumpy and airy finish, highly recommended.

davkeo 18 Jun, 2018 AltLd Led p1&2. P1 is really good with a pumpy crux section, a grassy & run out middle & a spicy finish up the crack. Found the route finding a little tricky. On p2 I pulled on the peg to clip the tat & had a look at the moves. Once I’d done that I decided I might as well just yard up. A really hard & reachy individual move I would say. Still an enjoyable pitch. Anni did the last 2 pitches which had great exposure & a super overhanging finish. A mad venue which made me feel like I was Climbing in the Brazilian Amazon not Chepstow. Adventurous day.

Longsufferingropeholder 21 Apr, 2017 AltLd Led pitches 1.8 (Ed stopped in the wrong place), 2 & 4. Some gear was sadly weighted in the faff. P1 crux was the hardest move on the route by miles. P2 felt more uneasy getting to the first peg than doing the "crux", which either you can reach or you can't. The infamous peg can be backed up by cams not far below. Top pitch was a spectacular, fun, wild but entirely unnecessary swing out and lock-off up to a handful of guano.

Alex Winter 1 Nov, 2014 AltLd O/S Good route. Just about warm enough to wear a t-shirt. Led the first two pitches. The first is probably the hardest of the bunch (E2), with some pumpy manoeuvres to exit the roof. The crux on the second (E1) is reachy, but not too difficult once you have it sussed -- probably easier than 6a if you're 6'+ and use the right holds. Awesome exposure on the third (VS), and the last (E1) has some great jug yarding if you finish up the arete. Top stuff.

Tom Brierley 3 Aug, 2014 Lead dog This is a fantastic climb, has a very big feel to it. However, we were delayed after the first pitch. Resulting in me leading the 2nd pitch at dusk, and leading the 3rd and 4th pitch in complete darkness without a head torch or moonlight, and barely even starlight... it was fucking scary, and made it 10 times harder, certainly an experience to climb an E2 with next to zero visibility. You quite literally have to feel the rock, and never know if the gear you put in has any chance of working (and often didn't). On top of all that the atmosphere was slightly surreal as the music from some festival was bouncing around the valley with surprising volume that increased and then mixed with others as we ascended the climb. O_o a climb i will not forget! ... but don't regret :P

Misha 14 Jun, 2009 AltLd dog Brilliant route, sustained and with excellent positions. Led P1, P2 and P4, Tom did the exposed P3. Annoying had a rest on the crux of P1 which wasn't really necessary, did the rest clean. The 6a crux on P2 is pretty safe with the in situ tat and the footholds aren't particularly polished - they just aren't particularly there!
