40m.

Rockfax Description
A stellar route, and one deserving of its reputation. Follow the crack-line up for 8m to the first good runner. Easier climbing leads to the kink in the crack, passing this is the crux. Good holds lead up to the overlap, which is easier to pass than it looks. Above, the gear is small and the climbing run-out. A steady head leads to the belay. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The most famous route on slate? Well-chalked and visible from Pete's Eats, this stunning crackline takes the centre of the Dervish slab, passing an overlap at two thirds height. "It's alright man, we're experienced rock cats."

S Haston Feb/1981

duncana 24 Apr 2nd dog An excellent lead by Pippa - apparently she had been wanting to do this for 20 years! Bottom is a bit nervy until you get cam in the good slot (although she had a decent piece lower down too), then it is fine technical climbing on a superb line. Brief tight rope in the middle. Moving through the overlap is an excellent move, and not too hard.

CRead 16 Apr Lead O/S Just fantastic. Had some pretty marginal RPs protecting the tricky first few meters which i wouldn't have wanted to test, after the first bit of decent gear you can relax a bit but not too much! Thought provoking moves and ever increasing calf pump to a decent rest before the overlap. From then on its probably mild E2. Such an absorbing route that deserves its legendary status.

George_Surf 23 Mar, 2018 Lead O/S In newly resoled shoes in the cold. Felt a bit slippery! Hard move before the first gear (cam slot, could find NOTHING before there, tried plenty of RPs and micros). After that it’s steady away to the overlap and mega safe. Nice rockover move through the roof (moved left under it). Above is where it got worse for me! Good #2 micro a little way up the slab but that was the only gear I could find on that wall. Did a rockover press move in to one of the niches but didn’t quite get my foot on and started to fall off. Scary and well bold up top, I thought after the overlap it was in the bag! Rained on the ab. Great line, harder or more like scarier than I expected

First proper route on slate and despite lack of wires on my rack and the midges majorly kicking in at 2/3 height I somehow got up it. Loved how much it challenged me but that run out at the top is a bit cheeky isn't it?! incredible route. Bit of a slag of a route none the less with the amount of chalk left on her. Trip Endex. Happy.

Some of the bits i'd heard were hard went dead easy (start & overlap), probably found hardest bit the dogleg and move from first gear slot. Totally totally classic and engrossing throughout though. I'm this pleased :)))))
I'm speechless for this one. Emotional at the top, 6 years of dreaming and wondering, a solid year of preparation! Huge milestone and highpoint of my climbing career. Some of the bits i'd heard were hard went dead easy (start & overlap), probably found hardest bit the dogleg and move from first gear slot. Totally totally classic and engrossing throughout though.

Then we went to a typical Llanberis party. Wild evening!
