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.

βeta: I found 3rd belay stance at thread closer to edge rather than by the chimney made it easier to communicate with the second. Ditch bags and hoist for crux chimney pitch.

The infamous chimney was good fun rather than a horror show (initial moves made harder by having a sack - pulled up Emma’s on the rope). In big boots for the authentic experience. 2h 20m - could have been faster but there was a guided team in front. Good belay ledges and some good sling belays so pretty easy to sort the stances. Would work as a guided teaching route for stance building. Did the Continuation scramble and Grooved Arete afterwards.

OG 6 May, 2019 AltLd O/S Fantastic climbing - possibly the best VDiff I've done? Highly recommended. Led the long P2 which was superb and had a bit of everything - slab, awkward width cracks, hand traverse, big gaps to cross. P1 highly polished but ok after that. P1 overlap move looks improbable at the grade but is actually fine. The final chimney was tricky to get established in due to polish and wet rock but ok after that.

omaskrey 29 Sep, 2017 Lead O/S 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.

SuperLee1985 2 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S 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.
