Rockfax Description
Another great route, that takes the quartz band that looks like a lightning bolt frozen in geology. Start by abseiling to the belay on the first pitch of Wen, or climb Wen to this point.
1) 5b, 40m. Move left to join the start of the quartz streak. Follow this, passing a few tricky moves, to where the streak turns into a crack, and follow this to broken easier ground and a small groove 6m right of the Dream... belay. You can move left to belay as for Dream... if you plan to finish up that.
2) 5b, 28m. Head up the small chimney/groove and pass through Dream... and move up and right into the top of a small leftward-trending groove. Continue on in the same direction to a longer groove line right of a smooth slab. Just below the top, move right to gain an exit crack leading to the final ledge of Wen. © Rockfax

Favourite route in the zawn so far! The crux is low down on the icicle with some thin moves a spicy distance above gear, but the rest of the route is a glorious sustained jug fest. The dream.

A lovely route on a sunny but windy afternoon. Easier than I expected it to be thank heavens as I haven't climbed for weeks. The description in Ground Up guide is confusing but the topo photo is bang on.

Alison Cairns 17/Sep/17 AltLd O/S

At last! Only been on my wishlist for 25 years... From the middle ledge. Led p1 (icicle - awesome. Top pitch psychologically harder but climbing is all OK once (if?! ) you find the way... Route description really doesn't make much sense from below!

From the high tide ledge. Absorbing technical climbing on P1, and then some devious route finding on P2. I found the Ground Up route description utterly bewildering - if it had just said 'go straight up and follow the holds' it would've made more sense. Instead I was zig-zagging all over the shop looking for curved grooves and smooth slabs. Immaculate climbing on the actual line, though. Led P2.

Started on ledges. I did quartz pitch. Really cool pitch, bit bold at start, and did a step left and climbed up to the crack / Seemed logical and climbed well that way. Soon as you hit crack lots of good gear and cool climbing. Ewan led last pitch. Really cool, and felt steady, always good positive holds in a cool situation high on the wall. Overall quality route, low end e2.

Route finding tricky on pitch three due to rubbish description. Should read move up off the belay, through the "Dream" traverse then move right before ascending the pocketed wall. Move right over the overlap on good holds then back left. Belayed just before this as I got lost.

James led the delicate P1, on which the hand holds are surprisingly good.I led P2 which although easier, is still great fun.

Great climb! I led the Quartz pitch and it's a beauty. Sustained but never too hard. generally good gear and one slightly thin section that has a great sequence. Top pitch is also good fun and you still need something left for the finish. 3 stars all the way. Very happy to lead this one, as we'd abbed in to warm up on Wen, but a team above were going slowly and faffing with their ropes. I looked at the line of Quartz and just thought 'I want to lead this'. So glad we did it.

Ed Booth 13/Jun/06 AltLd O/S

Very cool climb, bottom pitch probably a tad harder with more good gear and pitch 2 (my lead) probably a touch easier but a little more runout. All in all, absoulotely lovely climbing in a nice position that is never to dangerous!

Andy led p1. I led p2 and had a hell of a stuggle to find the right line.
