fresh rock fall (within last 12 hours) and a dead snake among the interesting items this time. the pitch of V Diff at the end was nice and dry. Pete spent a moment or two working out how to lead it, I felt weak and managed it on the third attempt with minimal scene, CRG did it quickly and elegantly but with more bad language. Martin cruised it, what with his new hip an' all.

Great afternoon out with Becky's parents + friends Ed and Chris. Trailled a rope on the harder bits and the 'Diff finish' for some off the group. Some tricky sections with slimy wet rock. Bailed out at the bridge.

Also with Chris & Ed in tow. Soloed everything except the Diff pitch (seconded with a bowline round the waist - very traditional!). Good fun: would be great when dry.

Fantastic place, wondeful long series of ever-increasing scrambles, only final wall defeated us (no rope). Gill was wet & slippy, but virtually no water running through it, almost dry riverbed.

Snowed up rock. Top pitch covered in verglas. chickened out of soloing this half way the last steep bit - had a handy top rope thrown down. would need curious conditions to be in proper winter nic.

Michelle's first experience of climbing and a good place to get started. Most of the scrambling is easy and made for good ground to mess around with ropework. There's an interesting corner and a few steep steps. The final diff pitch gave a good taste of easy rock climbing. Overall, a very nice short trip out and a novelty to be scrambling in Yorkshire.

Fantastic winter's day out and highly recommended. While cold and wet the levels of water were only a significant problem on the crux headwall (ducking under the waterfall gave us a healthy soking).

Was lovely and dry when we set off and then all of a sudden you heard it before you saw it, massive flood pulse came roaring down over the pitches into a waterfall. Was up to our shins within a minute. Was great fun! Assisted handline used at the bridge
