60m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An adventurous mountain route high on the side wall of South Gully that is no pushover. The route is gained by scrambling up or abseiling down South Gully to reach a large grassy ledge to the left of a rock rib.
1) 4c, 30m. From the ledge, step down and follow the right-most groove to reach a steep narrow slab (possible belay). Climb the slab to a hard move to reach the right-hand edge. Belay with care.
2) 5a, 18m. From the right-hand block, boldly gain the nose on the left. Continue left to gain Teufel's Crack. Follow this to a belay on a grassy rake.
3) 15m. Easily up the rake to belay behind the large block.
4) 4b, 38m. Climb a vague groove right of the block. Move left to a crack and follow this to a ledge. Gain a steep crack on the right to reach the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Scramble up South Gully until you reach the obvious arete and steep slab of Munich Climb on the LHS, just belwo the Pinnacle in the centre of the gully.

Pitch 1 - follow the steep slab/arete. Poor but sufficient gear. Hard move leftwards at the top to reach the belay.

Pitch 2 - climb the steep slab with a small "ledge" half way. Adequate but spaced gear. Can be climbed on the slab, on the arete, or round the front side overlooking South Gully depending on your height and preference. Cramped belay stance in some blocks with in-situ ab sling for the faint of heart.

Pitch 3 - make a hard and committing move leftwards above the belay stance to gain the arete. Great exposure, balancy but good protection. Traverse leftwards several metres with care to Teufels crack and climb it (fist jamming) to the stance. Careful ropework required to protect a nervous second on this pitch.

Pitch 4 - amble up the grassy rake a bit to a groove line in the wall. Climb this.

Pitch 5 - Head for the top up the wall above, slightly dirty in parts.

Pitch 5 -

lithos 19 Apr - did 3 pitches of Gashed Crag then scrambled down to start (just after the chimney pitch on GC) P1 me - great climbing up the groove and slab, one hard move to arete just before the ledge. Loads of gear. P2 pete really great traverse left, and the crack is not trivial. P3 - god knows went straight up a vague groove - but dont think many go that way! Arrived at notch but from the wrong side. We wandered around to left to try and find Bubbly Wall, but went too far, found an excellent pitch up a really bubbly slab about VD/S think it is the top pitch of Arete route. well worthwhile.

Pete_Frost 27 Aug, 2017 AltLd O/S A classic route. Probably VS 5a with the crux almost at the top of P1. Probably best (less wet and grovelling) to approach this by climbing to the belay after the crux of Gashed Crag and traversing in. The slab with the hollow (but solid) flake is obvious when you reach it. Led P2 - great fun, but take two big blue cams or hexes to protect Teufel's crack. Finishing via the final chimney/crack of Gashed Crag is also traditional fun! Highly recommended.

caradoc 15 Jul, 2015 AltLd O/S We divided pitch one into two, VS 4b then VS 4c/5a for the crux. Poor gear for belay. Teufel's Crack around VS 4b/4c. Confusing guidebook discrepancies followed, the new Idwal guide has invented a 4c pitch which we might have done, it's probably best to follow your nose for the remainder of the climb. A very enjoyable route that felt quite safe, contrary to it's reputation. Much easier than Mur y Niwl.

Gordon Stainforth 19 Aug, 1978 AltLd O/S A very classic day. Approach via Gashed Crag. Note added Dec 2016: This modern grade of HVS just cannot be right. I did it in the days of much poorer gear, and even then it was adequate, and the crux was just one 5a move by a good small nut. The traverse left above (i.e. next pitch) was adequately protected 4B. Simply toppish-end VS. We did Belle Vue Bastion immediately afterwards and, as we expected, it was a bit easier, but not much. It's also a much better climb than Munich (which is two stars at the very most.)

oldmanofmow 2 Apr, 1962 Lead NWMC meet. Started a supposed girdle of Tryfan from Grooved Arete when well up South Gully saw a ledge leading out across the steep left wall. With a bit of rope jigerry pokery reversed it and got onto the wall to find Ron James on the crux of Munich just below. Traversed left over ledges and up finishing on Gashed crag
