85m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic outing, described here with a more direct start up the crack. The original start climbs the diagonal corner on the left.

1) 32m. Start at the polished finger-crack in the centre of the slab. Follow this to gain the diagonal overlap which is followed rightwards to a niche. Move left through the overlap to gain the slab on the left and make a tricky manoeuvre through the overlap and onto the large ledge.
2) 30m. Climb the groove behind the flake, stepping left at a steepening and continuing up the groove to a "leg width" crack. Surmount this amusing obstacle to a niche. Continue up the fault to a huge block, and hand traverse leftwards below this, striding wildly across a chasm at its end into a large bay. Move up to the back left of the bay and belay below a large chimney
3) 12m. The crux chimney! Squirm up the chimney at the back of the bay. Some holds on the right wall might be useful. An alternative, easier finish climbs the wall on the right. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A great polished classic which is almost always busy. The nature of the climbing means that it attracts its fair share of struggling seconds (and leaders) who curse and swear their way up the polished wide cracks, flakes, chimneys and grooves.

Polish, polish everywhere, but still one of the most enjoyable vdiffs I think I've ever done! Some really awesome moves and positions definitely put this in the top five routes that I've climbed at this grade! First pitch has a great finger crack, a tricky and reasonably exposed move onto the slab and then some fun slab padding. Pitch two has some big cracks, a great traverse on a flake followed by an airy step. The chimney is awesome! Squirmy but with loads of holds! There's some tat at the top of soapgut which we probably should have tried to abseil from but I wasn't sure if my single 60m would have been retrievable (in hindsight it probably would have been) so we went over to the sketchy gully descent and abseiled there instead - pretty much exactly thirty metres followed by ten to 15 metres of down scrambling. It was raining at this point so continued to be sketchy all the way back to the car.

I led up the 4c first pitch of the Superdirect, behind another team. A great feature, but the very polished feet gave me reason to pause! Francis then moved right onto the Direct, for an enjoyable and interesting second pitch. He then sent me up the polished chimney; which I made a bit of a meal of, thinking I'd exit it on the right, before having to turn myself around to exit left. An enjoyable thrutch. Our 22nd, 23rd and 24th pitches of the day. The descent to the right is a surprisingly enjoyable scramble. Wouldn't fancy it in the wet, though!

Cool interesting climbing. Polished but gear in abundance. Followed a slower team who were struggling in chimney due to wet slime in front face holds... On top of polish. I had to drop my rucksack of from inside chimney and decided to layback the steep righ face flake/crack. Not advised with no gear!. Surprisingly, the left traverse on pitch 3 was not polished, seems people are missing out this delightful left traverse and over the slap lip in left. Well protected and worthwhile !!

Very enjoyable climb. Started at the polished finger crack in the centre of the slab. Two enjoyable hand traverses in the climb. Climbed on slightly further from the end of the route (alternative finish rather than crux chimney due to weather as raining) downward right traverse across the slabs to the escape route to abseil to descend.

Good climb, made more interesting by the rain halfway up. Definately well polished. Nice comfrotable slab on the first pitch ending in a bit of a mini-thrutch to gain the overlap. Second pitch was quite varies (although the topo says to go direct at the first bulge, the holds and polish seem to go left so i followed them. Intetresting climbing up the 2nd vertical crack. The hand traerse was exciting in the wet as was the step across the chasm. The final chimney pitch was soaking wet whihc made progress akward and slow. Gaining the chockstone felt very hard in the wet as I couldn't use any of the upper hand holds and didn't trust the slippery feet. A lot of thrutching and a belly flop gained it in the end. From there up, just very careful bridging, at one point i was basically standing in a waterfall but spotted a good foot out on the left hand face which helped me manoevre out of the slippery wetness and into easier ground. Glad I was climbing on half-ropes given the wet so that we could ab donwn the decent gully.

This was my first ever route climbed in Wales as well as the first route I have lead climbed and I throughly enjoyed it. This was the most polished route I have ever climbed and found it quite difficult in places. Mitch lead first two pitches and I led the last, the chimney. Would definately return and do this climb again. The descent was difficult with the previous rain and I got throughly soaked.

Excellent route with a bit of everything. Intended to climb on east face, but heavy rain meant we scrambled down the north ridge to milestone and sunshine. Started up the leftward-slanting diagonal crack. Enjoyed the traverse and the chimney (bit wet and hauled sacks). Abseiled off down a wet gulley. Rod led most pitches.

Did P1 only. Nice little pitch - running with water though (that would be to do with the rain falling). Investigated setting this up as a TR option for groups. Set-up easy enough; retrievable abseil too, but rope stretch on 60m of rope would be a bit off-putting. Maybe to set as a proper top-rope, but then again communication with group would be tricky at 30m.

jandyd05 27/Sep/09 Lead O/S

Climbed as an alpine style outing in big boots with sacs. Great varied route with some interesting struggles e.g. leg jam and chimney. So polished I could see myself on some holds !

CathS 20/Sep/09 AltLd O/S

Wow! What an amazing route. Sustained and quite hard for the grade. Led P1 (overhang start) and P3 (hand traverse). The 'interesting' finish to the hand traverse was possibly the most scared I've ever been on a lead, given the extremely polished rock, how far I was from my last piece of gear and the swing potential. Thought I would going to die! (NB. this is the second time I've said this in a week regarding a North Wales 'classic' VDiff!!!)

Belay behind the big bolder with the hand traverse running along the bottom. There are good Slings and thread belays. 4th pitch is a tricky chimney in which there was no other way but throwing the whole body into it!

Last day of a five days course at the Brenin. Had never climbed before this week and my arms were absolute agony whilst belaying. The arm pain made retriving a threaded sling anchor on a bit with no foot hold interesting.

Went as far as the chimney, supurb climb with amazing exposure.

with Paul Milton 04/Nov/06 AltLd O/S

It was getting dark rapidly, and we'd done a long route on Tryfan already. As a result we did some rather odd variations, must come back and do it the 'real' way when less hurried.
