Rockfax Description
Bosigran's most celebrated Extreme, and one of its most exciting. Start by scrambling up a corner and crack to a stance under the leaning light brown wall.
1) 5b, 26m. Follow a line of surprisingly good holds out rightwards across the impressive wall to a small spike. Continue up a crack, past a horizontal crack with what looks like a pancake of rock sandwiched in it, to a traverse-line slightly higher. Strenuous moves rightwards lead immediately into more technical ground that gains a cramped slab under an overhang. Move right and pull through the overhang to a belay just above.
2) 5b, 26m. Make an exposed traverse left along the lip of the overhang to meet a diagonal break that leads more easily back rightwards to the top of the crag. © Rockfax

jsmcfarland ?Jun Lead O/S Incredible climb. Did the first pitch clean, though it's so incredibly pumpy. Move up to the undercut jugs was absolutely desperate, and then another desperate one sideways across the blank slab. Somehow made it to the next belay only for one of the ropes to get stuck and my 2nd unable to make it up to me after falling off into space halfway up. Will definitely come back for this!

Chimnastics 31 Dec, 2018 2nd rpt Was hoping to get this clean on second, but had to hang on the rope right at the crux and spend 5 minutes hammering out a nut that Phil had fallen on. I climbed to it cleanly and comfortably. The crux move straight after was even more desperate than I remembered, but I just got it clean. The next move over the overlap was pretty testing too. Baffling that I led it no too long ago! The second pitch slab traverse is actually easy. Found the hardest moves to be a short way up the crack above, but nothing dramatic. Had to do P2 in a headtorch.

Chimnastics 5 Jul, 2018 Lead dog Bow-locks! Fell on the crux :( But great to finally get on this hallowed ground. I thought it was quite a challenge from the off. It's not trivial climbing at first, and I didn't feel hugely inspired by my gear until I got to the spike. The crack isn't too bad, and I was able to hang around there for quite some time figuring out the sequence. The next move up into the undercuts was hard, but again a sort of rest can be contrived here. To cut a long story slightly shorter, my first attempt at moving right and gaining the slab didn't work, and I attempted to use a tiny crystal for my right foot, which unfortunately snapped. After a rest I did figure out an easier sequence, but there's still 5c moves in this area. Gaining the slab under the roof was a massive relief, and the final pull over the roof was pretty exciting. The next pitch was harder than anticipated; the gear on the leftwards traverse was shocking, and welcome relief did not come as soon as you reach the rightward slanting groove. It does ease up, and then the slab and then end was fun. Seems not many people go that way though, as it was very lichenous. Guess I have to go back and get this dealt with soon!

P2 is probably worth HVS and eases considerably when you get to the curving crack. Climbing up this was lovely.

djones66 ?Jun, 1994 Lead O/S Two excellent pitches. The 'big pitch' is brilliant - the higher you get, the better the gear gets...and the harder it gets. Top pitch is not to be sneezed at; just not nearly as memorable as the one before.

RockPhoenix 1 Apr, 1988 Lead O/S This route has appeared in numerous nightmares over the years, even though I climbed the route clean. It created strange off balance feelings in places - where I didn’t know if I was standing or falling! The hand jam in the pocket of quartz is something few will forget and it’s one of the airiest routes I’ve done. Awesome in every sense of the word!
