Grade Route

FA: Walter Berger & Steve Bennett, 1988

FA: Bruce Somerfield, Phil Robertson, Clare Robertson & Tony Sands, 1987

This was originally graded 17 as the FA was quite straight-forward on hand jams. Repeats found it quite a bit harder, maybe because they were laybacking?

FA: James McIntosh, Paul Woolger & Stuart Willis, 1987

Originally graded 17 (as was Chocolate Frog), so the grade has been bumped up by the same amount. Could someone please repeat both in the same day and provide feedback?! It is also believed that Peter Stebbins may have done a direct start into this line past a bolt, at grade 19. Confirmation of this would also be appreciated.

FA: Stuart Willis, James McIntosh & Paul Woolger, 1987

This is the direct start with BR into Chocolate Frog done with Andrew Stevens

FA: Pete Stebbins, Pete Stebbins, Andrew Stevens 16-6-91 & Andrew Stevens, 1991

Hard thin face moves past BRs onto sloping bulge

FA: Andrew Stevens & Pete Stebbins, 1991

FA: Kevin Lindorff & Peter Lindorff, 1983

Hard pumpy direct start (BR) into Gunga Din.

FA: Scott Camps, 1987

Start as for Flying Blind. Either stick clip the high 1st RB or place a small cam or nut in FB. Up FB for a few moves before a move L up onto the face and vague arete. Up this and make a spectacular move over the roof on jugs to the lower off.

FA: Matt Brooks, Oct 2017

Takes the line up the proudest section of the orange wall. Climb pumpy overhang to the roof, R a few moves, then pull up and traverse spectacularly back L along the lip of the roof, and up.

FA: Bruce Somerfield & Phil Benson, 1988

This looks quite ok! Starts next to chossy chimney and climbs a rising traverse R, leading into a great looking traverse line.

FA: Michael Wust & Kevin Lindorff, 1983

Never written up, but reportedly a route has been done up the beautiful wall halfway along the 'Cucumber Sandwich' traverse.

Start 15m R of the chossy chimney and immediately R of smooth orange wall. Up corner / arete, leading to a juggy chimney up high.

FA: Michael Wust & Kevin Lindorff, 1983
