We had a bit of a struggle, and exited left. Can't see how this grade makes any sense at all.

Went up after Kev and Charley couldn't finish. We were following Rockfax guide which shows exit to right of block! 4a??? Not a chance. Managed to get up to top but couldn't hold on enough to pull myself over, horrible thrutchy finish. Kev and Charley did finally do it but not elegantly at all.

What a horrid climb. Charley lead but got could not finish it as we went to the right of the block (probably making it a 5b move). Decided to make it multi pitch and I completed pitch 2 with lots of brute force and ignorance. Clean on site? Hardly... but no falls or resting on the rope.....
Tithe Technique - AltLd O/S - 09/Apr/11 with Angela Paul, Charley Fell

Followed the line in RockFax - what an epic. Had to turn a 10m climb into a multi pitch. Couldn't do the exit so brought Kev up, he tried but then lowered off, Ange tried it but had the same problem. Kev tried again and somehow made it to the top. (great effort) Horrible, horrible move, didn't enjoy it at all. The BMC line might be worth doing though...

Very silly climb, fun in an awkward way. Creative Finish to the left.
