First pitch fine if requiring a confident lead due to boldness. At the belay stance there is abseil tat as others have clearly also thought 'like hell is this D/VD!' for the move up and out onto the main face. There's a few juggy holds but it's an awkward manoeuvre. After the slabby section there is a (now dead) tree which if I hadn't used for a foot hold would have been a considerably harder climb. Not too sketchy just yet but can't imagine it lasting much longer. We accidentally went left up from the chockstone, so didn't go up onto the official pinnacle top, but there is currently a very green last tug of exposed unprotected scrambling to get up to the descent path.

Lead the 2nd pitch, never a diff, also abbed off from a tree with lots of tatt as no obvious walk off, guide book is a joke!!

Leading two RMT students. Good climb but not Diff in the slightest, be warned. The new Lakes select guidebook has an incorrect description on the last pitch. The pinnacle is on the right and the jump is back left before climbing the 'short wall'.

Led third pitch, but straight onto the pinnacle, not a dif route. Up to the peak and jumping over is much easier! Great route.

First lead. First multi pitch. No obvious descent bar the gully, we muscled up through grassy ledges to a wall and found feint path right descending steeply.

Did with big rucksacks on and abseiled down the gulley on the right (looking in) found it to be exposed and hard for a diff, but with lot's of protection.

Done in three pitches, with me leading the 1st and Adam leading the 2nd and 3rd in the interests of speed. Had a mini-epic on the route, involving everything from going off-route to dropping belay devices from the belay. Took forever on the route, and abbed down the gully as it got dark. The guidebook is misleading at best on this one - the 2nd pitch is 'exciting' for a diff, and the descent doesn't appear to exist!

For a Diff climb the decent could upset many a first timer and even the most experienced. We had an epic trying to find the decent path??? In the end we went for the ab down the gully even though the guide sais not too. Great veiws

Nice route. Climb with double ropes and abseil from tree at top of gully- otherwise a long steep descent path.

Tried to wizz up and and do this quickly after dinner but it ended up taking forever with stuck gear and failing to stick to the path down. It turned into a crazy battle through the trees and boulders in the dark. The hard part was definately not the route itself!

My second ever lead, first multi-pitch. Very different from my first lead at Windgather! Dad got scared half way up, and so I had to abb down. Left gear on the way to 2nd belay.

Fantastic views of Castle Rock from the first belay. Brilliant dif. If this was in Yorkshire it would be 3 stars. Hard Dif in the old Borrowdale guide, a down grading from the 60s - a rarity! HD would be fairer.
