Rockfax Description
One of the great early mountain climbs of the UK taking an imposing line up the middle of the buttress. The climbing is varied and on immaculate rock. Start on the top of a large block that sits next to the gully wall.
1) 17m. Move up to below a short shallow chimney. Climb this (or bypass it on cleaner rock to the left) then continue up then rightwards to a large ledge and belay.
2) 10m. Move up twin cracks and traverse left to a stance below a corner-crack.
3) 12m. Climb to the top of the corner-crack then traverse left on flat holds to a small stance and chockstone belay below a wide crack/chimney.
4) 18m. Awkward but well-protected moves up the chimney gain an easing under the wider continuation. Traverse right around an exposed rib, then climb up rightwards more easily to a belay at an airy eyrie!
5) 15m. Move up a crack rightwards to a ledge just before the broken corner. Climb the slab on the left to the top on small positive holds. © Rockfax

HardknottDave 24 Jun, 2018 Lead O/S Great day. Divvied out in the summit shelter of Pillar overnight and got a reasonably early start, although we had a much more comfortable and restful night than we expected! Climb was great, although climbing in shorts and t-shirts when the crag was in shadow was perhaps a mistake that we only realised after starting and committed to the route. Got into the sun on top of pitch 4, suspect we were both starting to be slightly hypothermic, so that was something of a relief. Rap off into Jordan Gap was a bit daunting, but in-situe gear looked very new and once going went well. Brilliant mountaineering expedition.

I lead P3 at the last light, then we abseiled of Jordan Gap with a 50m single rope and pull cord for 2 pitches. Unfortunately the ropes got stuck after P2. We set up the pulley system and tried to release it for 2.5 hrs, but failed and so abandoned the ropes. Due to her injury it took 4 hours for us to descend to the carpark - 21 hours from carpark to carpark. Epic!
