Rockfax Description
An excellent route, much better than the indirect version.
1) 5b, 43m. Start down and right of the first pitch of Gogarth. Climb juggy rock then the crack in the arete to join Gogarth briefly at the shallow groove. Head up this then the corner/groove above until moves left gain a belay ledge tucked in below a steep arete.
2) 5b, 48m. Gain the awkward crack in the arete from the right, climb it, passing a trying section to reach a flake/crack on the left. Up this (possible belay for masochists) then launch leftwards up a tricky groove which leads to easier ground and large spike belays. © Rockfax

Misha 25 May AltLd rpt Went for this as conditions weren’t conducive to anything harder or longer. Nice route, good to do it again. Plan was to do the ‘indirect’ as I hadn’t done that but ended up on the RH start of the direct due to not checking the guide book. Thought it was a bit odd that the start of the indirect was so well chalked! Eszter did P1 but above the difficult section veered into Gogarth and took a belay just below the belay ledge at the end of P3 of that route. I then traversed the belay ledge to a belay at its RHS. Not a bad way of doing it as avoids the really hairy (literally) top section of P1 and we ended up belaying on a large ledge and out of the wind. The proper belay at the top of P1 is not so spacious, though fine for one person. I then went to the top - had 60m ropes but seemed about 50m to the good spike belays (spikes available lower down as well). Got cold, semi numb fingers so had to reverse from the crux to a rest. Fine once got some blood flowing again! Hard 5b / easy 5c but quite a short crux section. The rest is 5a or easy 5b. Hanging belay at the top of the guide book P2 - doable but not amazing. Would also need to split P1 by belaying just as it eases - no ledge but fairly low angled there. On the whole, not a bad one to guide as it’s pretty much straight up but the belays aren’t the best, especially with two seconds. 3h from starting the scramble up to the first belay (bit more than a scramble - would need to belay if guiding) to getting back to the gearing up spot.

murray 18 May, 2018 AltLd dog Quite disappointed to have made such a mess of the epic 50m pitch 2. Used up all my energy going up and down a steep crack line just to the left of the correct line, then made a sketchy traverse onto the route and blundered straight into the crux where I proceeded to miss a great RH hold and pump out while fiddling in some gear and sagging miserably onto it. Finished the rest of the pitch but my heart wasn't in it after that. One to repeat and actually enjoy next time.

First pitch is straight into the action without a warm up! Super classic, great double with the Strand (which is a harder, pumpier pitch than each one on this), go do it!

There was quite a bit of what looked like dried blood on P3, which was a bit worrying. Done on the Saturday of the CC aspirants meet. Nice and warm once the sun had pulled round. Led P2 (crux, probably 5c, which is what Ground Up give it).
