110m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
110m. 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 wet having retained a lot of rain and melt water from previous weeks in the cracks even though there had been days of continuous sunshine.

GPN 06/Feb/15 AltLd

Brilliant night time adventure. Set off at 9pm, topped out at 2am, back in Kendal at 4. Led p1 and 3. P4 in particular is superb.

Cracking route. Plenty of snow but not consolidated or frozen so mixed climbing all the way. First winter fall, (and hopefully my last)! on the finial moves of pitch 3. Led the final pitch to make up for the eairlier skydive.

Brilliant fun, all on the soft end of the rope (thanks Tim). Highlight was my crampon falling off on the final groove and having to do some knee climbing till it could be fixed...

Mr. K 04/Dec/10 2nd β

Tried to lead the first pitch, couldn't find any reasonable gear before the initial groove so I handed the reins over to Andy. Route got harder and harder so I stayed gibbering as a second. Pitches felt something like 5, 5, 6, 6 to me but it was pretty much out of my league so difficult for me to say! Very little ice or frozen turn so it was hunting for small hooks under a thick covering of snow the whole way. We bailed from a large block very near the top as darkness, exhaustion, dehydration and the beginnings of hypothermia were sucking the fun out of the party. Got back to civilisation just in time to call off the mountain rescue callout our worried friends had put in. An incredible day!

Meant to lead a pitch. Martin won coin toss for first, i backed off second on first move, let martin have a crack at 3rd cos its THE pitch, then it was dark for the last one and knew martin would be quicker. Top quality route, no consolidated snow, basically dry tooling.

Martin Haworth 08/Jan/10 Lead O/S

Epic. Arrived late,-10 degrees when we set off, started climbing at 12. Tremendous route, sustained climbing at my limit,fourth pitch done in the dark, overall 6 hours!Led all pitches.

Beautiful cloudless day - even had sunshine for the belays atop p2 & p4! No ice nor good turf, just unconsolidated powdery snow so it felt a little insecure in places but overall a fantastic outing. There were two other teams on the route after us.
