41m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A pleasant route, but bold in places. Best enjoyed as one long pitch, or take the optional belay and move into Eagle Finish at the top.
1) 5a, 44m. Start below the centre of the white slab and climb up through a small overlap on good incut holds to reach the quartz-covered slab. Head up aiming for the groove at half-height (optional belay in Asahel on the right). Move up the groove and continue up the slab until forced right into Asahel, follow this back left and up to the ledge.
2) 7m. As for Africa Rib. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
From the top of the first pitch of Ashael, follow the same line until you reach steep overhung V in the rock. Climb strenuouslyfor a few moves, over good wire placement. Pull to the side of roof (left) to gain sloping mantleshelf. Follow directly up to meet the finish of Africa Rib.

Very nice Slab climbing. Worth 2 or even 3 stars

MarkFoster 13/Jul/17 AltLd O/S

Led up slab to junction with Asahel then scurried off left as in Rockfax topo line. Quite bold as you pull onto bottom overlap as gear is low, ok after that if you hunt around.

A good route. A but bold but not that hard. Done as a link up with the Eagle finish, which is superb!

In mistake for P1 of Usher's Dilemma! Good slab climbing on quite spaced gear, some wet pockets. Used Eagle Finish for P2, not the 5a groove through the bulge on Brys.

good easy climbing up until the roof move thats pretty committing , good holds but very steep and pretty exciting , worth a star just for that ukc description deffo not what the book states

First pitch has spaced gear but its steady climbing. p2 up the slab and then into the groove in the overhang, good high gear but a very steep pull to reach the left arete, hard moves up and over this (ukc description is wrong, if you do the eagle finish its only a VS).

Superb, sustained and gear can be a bit thin, but you arrive at Asahel just as toes and nerves are starting to tire. How worrying you find this depends on how you feel about the frictional properties of quartz!

One long pitch, into the eagle finish which was an amazing way to finish this route

Interesting glassy slab climbing. I went through the overhang above the slab at maybe 5a.

Pete led P1. Soloed P2. Lovely quartz holds. Potential deck out after initial pieces of gear.

Climbed as a variation of Asahel. Only had the North Wales rock guide with me at the time, so I didnt have any of the climb info, but the line looked fun. Very rewarding pulling through the roof. Perhaps undergraded at HVS, the protection is quite low for the crux.

Why does this route not get 3 stars. Awsome, scary going threw the roof though only gear at the start of the roof, if you fall on the lip splat long way down thats why it should get E1 5a. At the top of the route all my beer nearly came back up but lots of wooping to good cutting loose on overhang lip

Tried to climb as one pitch but belayed under the overhang. Tried the roof on the lead and p***ed to find i was 2 inches from a bomber hold!
