Rockfax Description
A legendary Cornish classic that traces an exposed line across the blankest section of Bosigran's Main Face. Start at an easy-angled line of weakness that runs up rightwards to beneath a black wall known as the Coal Face.
1) 25m. Follow the weakness to a belay under the Coal Face.
2) 4b, 14m. Move up the corner right of the Coal Face to the start of a thin diagonal crack that runs up left across the Coal Face. Climb the crack to a large block on the arete and belay - the Pedestal stance.
3) 5a, 15m. Follow flakes leftwards across the wall above the Pedestal and move up to a wide break and good cams. Traverse the break left a short way until it is possible to gain a small ledge and belay below a smooth groove.
4) 5c, 9m. Some very hard but well-protected moves start the groove which then eases just before a belay ledge is reached a short distance above.
5) 4b, 15m. Move up the leaning corner above the belay for a few metres before swinging rightwards on good holds out of the corner to easier climbing and the top. Climbing the leaning corner directly is the strenuous top pitch of Paragon 5a. © Rockfax

MarkH143 3 Aug AltLd G/U We scrambled up to the ledge from the right for pitch 1. Seb led pitches 2 (coal face), 3 and 5 onsight. I led crux pitch after up and downing a bit then got it clean with a cam already in a couple of metres up. Thought it was a bit bold off the belay! Not the most flowey route, not worth 3 stars in my opinion.

Big Lee 23 Jul, 2018 AltLd dnf Ab'ed off from beneath the fourth pitch. Had a brief try but couldn't find good gear beyond a runner right over the upper belay peg. I was expecting well protected 5c, not worn, unusable runner placements with likely deck-out potential back onto the belay ledge. We maybe should have used combined tactics in hindsight. Anna did a sterling job on the third pitch. She was too short too reach the horizontal break at the normal point so needed to gain it much further right and make a much harder higher traverse.

foobar123 22 Jun, 2018 AltLd Wheatcroft led in from Thin Wall Special and belayed below the coal face. Next pitch was one of the nicest easy pitches I've done in a while. P3 turned out to be harder than expected, especially the mantleshelf to gain the belay ledge! Crux pitch is not as well protected as the guidebook would lead you to believe! One good nut just above the belay, then the crux move. Could probably fiddle in some gear then but I opted just to stand up instead which turned out fine. Strung this into the end of Paragon, which turned out to be harder than expected, requiring double hand jams and a heel hook on my part, but Wheatcroft made it look much easier!

Caught Steve's fall onto the at the start of p4 after his gear popped, which was a bit of a scary moment, but onsighted the crux. Chose to tackle the final pitch of paragon (5a) instead of the 4b finish. Found it hard and the hand jam lost me the use of my hand for 10 mins.. All in all, great adventure! Most serious route yet by far, I think.

Was gonna do it in one pitch but brought Hamish over so if I was struggling we could resort to combined tactics. Finally committed and made the move up with a bit of a move left, then ended up on the top pitch of paragon which brought back some memories!

The climbing on the coal face is great but feels more serious than the grade suggests. The traverse was lovely climbing with an awkward mantle at the end. The crux was hard and a bit committing, even with the protection you'd probably hit the ledge if you muffed it. A lot of fun and a lovely varied route though.

Misha 15 May, 2013 AltLd O/S First route of the day in the shade - we knew it would be cold and it was! Davor did P1&2 together. I led P3, which was solid E1 5a - exposed, tricky moves and a bold start (particularly as Davor belayed standing on top of the pedestal off an ageing peg and two micro cams!). Followed by an ungainly shuffle to finish (the hidden hold is way over left!). Davor led P4&5 in one, taking in the vicious direct finish. Good, varied route but not sure about 3 stars. With Davor on BMC international meet.

P3 was exciting - the move up to the break was protected by a rusty peg which I could only clip with a krab sitting across a rock edge. Spent ages contemplating the final move. I couldn't work it out at all. In the end I lanched across fully expecting to be off but instinct got me up. P4 (the 5c pitch) had more positive hand holds than I was expecting. Had no problem on the foot holds. Great lead by Mike. P5 was way more than 4B. I had at least 4 exhausting attempts before I got established in the pod and I had to remove my helmet for the excellent exit.

DonnyDave 10 Aug, 1979 AltLd I lead p3, amazing moves in awesome settings. Ian did the Coal Face using his feet in the diagonal, unlike most tend do it. Mid way up p4 Ian shouted "look down", there was a massive Basking Shark swimming bellow. I know they are "safe" but still gave an added incentive not to fall. lol. Fantastic route.
