Rockfax Description
Steep, sustained, and the scene of much frustration. Start below the wide central crack. Gain the main crack via a smaller crack to its right. Climb this strenuously, but with good gear, to a bulge near the top. This provides the crux onto the easier slab above. © Rockfax

Like the guidebook states.... a strenuous climb is exactly what it is. Good holds throughout however as you get to the crux (bulge) and sub crux (above bulge) the holds seem to disappear, however if you have a scratch around you can find them. Yes i said sub crux :) if you think its all over after the bulge it not, however there's time for a short rest to manage the pump.

What a route...! I made a poor route reading cboice, and got mega pumped a few moves before the crux trying to go direct up the crack. Eventually got too pumped and sat on the gear and then saw the huge line of holds I hadn't seen from inside the crack. Got to the crux, then didn't have enough juice to get my feet over the top and fell again. Climbed from the ground with gear in, and then carried on leading once I was at the crux again and finished fine.

After a trip to Roscoyln and lots of rain in the morning we came to Holyhead mountain as we thought it would be drier. After blue sky for 2 hours it looked dry. Thought I would warm up on this with in intension of getting on bran flake. I had To work hard the rock was a little soapy and the jams felt slippy. So in these conditions it felt harder than some pumpy E2's I have done. But A wicked route a lot steeper than it looks 3 stars all the way. Decided not to do anything else after this due to conditions.

Punpy climb, clipped the in situ cam, then climbed back to a ver poor ledge for a rest as i was using incredibl shit technidue to get overbulge, though through moves and was up and over. very pumpy route, plus on the friday night id done a ten hour night climb in a storm so was kinda tired already but couldnt resist a lead.

Never been so pumped in my life. Forgot to check good footholds before coming over the crux and had to rest. When i found the foodhold i managed. Very welcome stuck gear just below the crux which makes it possible to clip high even with short (and pumped) arms.

An excellent line- not too pumpy and some good rests in between harder sections. Solid comfortable jams with footholds all the way up. Didn't realise there was the slab at the top- so only took enough qds for the lower section, which takes really bomber gear.
