Rockfax Description
The central line on the wall is often well-chalked and high in the grade; short climbers with fat fingers may want to claim an E3. Climb to the base of the steeper rock (wires to the right) and sprint up a flake to a deep slot. Step left and climb the tough thin crack to a triangular hole which takes a big nut. A final couple of long reaches/powerful pulls gain the top. © Rockfax

βeta: My beta for next time: Slab is a bit trickier than it looks, put gear in lower if possible. Peg, sprint up to slightly mediocre holds, lean out right to slot (red cam). Up the crack, big nut in the triangular hole. Took grey, but would probably take any. Left hand out to the pinch/ crimp, layback off that, step right foot through to hold. Don't touch the crappy left hand hold - go straight to the rail. Then, deep breath, and jump!

βeta: glad to hear that im not the only one to dyno for that edge (i think even if i could climb it in more controlled style id opt for the dyno - especially exciting after the pumpy crack). found it quite bold though not difficult lower down. a brilliant route, with some great moves throughout.

βeta: I have led Billy Whizz and Boulevard a couple of times and this weekend followed Billy Whizz then top roped Boulevard in quick succession. I thought the climbing was similarly hard on both. As they are both well protected from good shakeouts and Boulevard is rated as hard for E3 (even given E4 in one guide) this must put Billy Whizz squarely in the E3 camp - especially so for the short.

Nice climbing through the jugs to the crack. Placed some gear in the crack then down climbed to the peg to de-pump for 5 mins. After the rest, stormed through to the top with enjoyable powerful and technical climbing. Best finishing holds this side of Cratcliffe. The whole thing rewards a confident approach and of course some forearm endurance.

Bit of a race against the rain too. 5a but run out slab to peg on the left and bomber number 4 rock on the right. Balancy climbing up the groove into the right hand jam rest. Thin, but good enough, diagonal locks to a triangle slot and another sinker jam. Then some good cranking to glory. Pretty damn good! (for a grit route anyway)

MD 6 Nov, 2011 2nd dog Had a slight mishap topping out. One of my walking boots somehow unclipped from my harness. It was very fortunate that the pool level was 1m lower than normal because the boot came to rest at the very bottom half way between Excaliber and Billy Wizz. Retrieving it with one rock shoe and a boot was fun. In a moment of confusion we thought one of Misha's trainers had gone in as well.

Misha 6 Nov, 2011 Lead dog Had struggled back in March 2009 so hoped to now do it clean. Fine to the non-rest at the start of the crack but then fell off when a finger lock failed. Harder than it looks as the initial section of the crack doesn't accept finger locks easily. Got to the hole and swapped hands a few times but couldn't get a proper shake out. Went for the finishing moves anyway and got the moves right but too pumped to hold the 'jug' so dropped onto the gear in the hole. Finished easily after a rest. Need to do it again one of these days... Think it deserves E3. Mike's shoe unclipped itself and fell in the pool as he was topping out on second!

ksjs 11 Aug, 2007 Lead O/S how good was that with a dyno to boot! it really isnt that long but it feels very involving and builds to a great climax. bomber gear (except for the slabby start) and good moves throughout. certainly one of the best Peak E2s

Ram MkiV 21 Jun, 2006 Lead dog really disappointed to fall off this. Made heavy weather of the thin crack though wasn't really pumped. Just poor reading and finger lock selection left me 'udging' on 1/2 pads of 2 fingers of one hand poorly jammed in. Though the crack is very thin for my fingers, solid locks are still there, just didn't find them on the onsight!
