110m, 4 pitches. One the of great classic buttress routes of the Lakes. Starts just left of the foot of the buttress below a chimney. 1) 25m. Climb an open groove then a narrow offwidth chimney to a big ledge. 2) 30m. Make a tricky move up off the ledge then move left into the open groove line until an exit back right can be made onto a good ledge below a steep crack. 3) 30m. Climb the steep crack followed by some bold moves across the slab on the left and a traverse into a steep right facing corner (possible belay). Thin moves up the corner and the chimney above lead to a stance. 4) 25m. Move either left or right and climb easier ground to the top of the buttress. ROCKFAX

Very polished on the crux first chimney and the crack on pitch 3, only ever a couple of moves before another jug to swing on!! fantastic route and well worth the walk in, which just adds to the drama of the day making it a proper mountain day and not just another crag day! Bryon led the crux pitches, I led short one in the middle before the crack and the final pitch 5.

Had the crag to ourselves. Mostly dry except the final groove pitch which was a bit damp. Crack pitch is pretty tough; on its own on e.g. Stanage I don't think it would get VDiff. A curious mix of horrific scratching and shiny polish. Good route and nice to top out pretty much on a summit.

Cat and I lead alternate pitches (I did 1 and 2 together, as well as 5 and 7). Thoroughly enjoyed the route, weather was perfect for it and the 'slippery crack' had not a sign of moisture! Very polished but enjoyable moves, one of the best routes I've lead. Route has been severely damaged by crampon scratches - leads me to question whether there has actually been any ice on it when its been climbed in winter??

Definately felt that pitch two, the polished chimney was the crux rather than the slippery crack which felt straightforward but strenuous with a rucksac

Completed in six pitches. Two hour walk-in from Great Langdale, two hours to climb it and 1.5 hours descent back to NT camp site.

Robinl100 07/Sep/97 Lead dnf

2.5 hour walk in from Langale. 5/7 pitches completed. Abseiled off after encountering wet, slimy rock which we felt was not climbable. Crux was chellenging and seemed harder than V diff.

This is a really enjoyable route, but needs to be graded "Traditional V. Diff.", meaning expect anything up to about 4b!
