Rockfax Description
An excellent and memorable route, that has a run-out section that will put hairs on your chest! Start below a crack, and climb edges up and left and then back right to reach the first gear in the crack. Follow the crack, sometimes on the wall to the left or right, to gain the pipe. Make bold moves to a shot-hole below a tower, move left to a groove and follow it easily to a belay on a large flat ledge. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A classic crack climb of the slate quarries. Climbs the distinct crackline up rainbow slab. Climb with interest to the metal pipe, tie this off then boldly continue up the easier slab above. belay well back.

Mega! First trad route on slate & prob shud have warmed up on something else! Good gear thru the crack with a couple of stiff moves. No chalk on route made the run out section hard to read as I thought there was 2 ways possible. Started to rain just as I was about to press on so I waited for things to clear. The thin moves to the niche were awesome & exciting. Enjoyable thereafter. 3 star route & one of the best Iv done.

Quite cool climbing. Thin, but well protected low crux and then easier but bold climbing to the top. A folded over nut in the shothole protects the top section, though the hard climbing is over by then. Heckling was also on point.

Heavens opend as soon as I topped out (above the run-out section). Phew! The crux was insecure and desperate for me (shortie), 6a, and so it's overall E3 6a. Phil (taller than I) thought it to be 5c. The Ground-up guide stated 5b – that is a joke. Anyway, mega-quality route, and I thought it to be even better than Comes the Dervish, or it is certainly harder.

Glad to do this at 3rd time of asking but today things were reversed: less assured lower down and fine on the bold bit. Think worries lower down were a combination of early season trad, first route of the day, not remembering that the initial section had taken effort before and not climbing on my own rack. First class and tricky E2. Some real 'hang your house' wires after the first few placements.

Absolutely fantastic climb! Definitely the best I've done on slate, probably the best I've done ever. Was a bit scared on the hard start until I got gear in but then managed to lace it up until the run out at the top so it felt nice and safe despite some technical moves on small feet and hands. Had to think through majority of moves lower down but felt quite steady as plenty of no hands rests possible in between to rest, place gear and contemplate next moves. Run out was much easier climbing, still enjoyable, and didn't feel too bold despite lack of gear.

Justin T 11/Sep/12 Lead O/S

Shower started as I topped out, thankfully not 5 minutes earlier! Top felt ridiculously bold!

Glad to finally get on this. Crux low down was more technical than I had expected. Very well protected to the pipe. Maybe a 5b move 3m above the pipe, then gets easier the further you go. Turns out I got a bomber DMM 4CU 2.5 in a shot hole half way up the run out! Stripped gear on abseil.

Oh dear. Fell headfirst down most of route, distance extended by belayer malfunction. Si heroically corrected error but lost mucho skin from palms and fingers of both hands in process, not pretty. Had enough time to contemplate imminent demise. Eventually stopped somewhere around 1st or 2nd runner by walloping back of helmet onto rock. Close shave, pipe is solid.
