Aimed for Clapton's Crack, but we realised we were on this route after P1. Both pitches are pretty good – it'd be easily 3-star if there was no bush-bashing middle section. Found it to be hard for the grade, more like E1 5b.

Nice route. The overhang at the top of P1 is best solved by patience: face the slab and don't ignore the huge foot hold by your bum on the arete. The start of P3 is strenuous but the gear is good. Try finishing direct up the slabby wall at the top: this is what the friction must have been like across the whole of the cliff before it was climbed.

oops looking for Clapton's didn't think it looked like a Dihedral! I enjoyed P1, with an awkward move around overhang at the top. Very traditional bridging. P2 we knew we were off route but didn't knoow what (I had my suspicions) Polished foothold was interesting! steep but soon relents at top of initial groove.

Interesting route, very 3D first pitch, quite perplexing in places. P3 was easier than anticipated although the polished foothold is a slippery trap.View at.. http://youtu.be/A_NEdn95Z7I

Tithe Technique - 2nd O/S - 14/May/14 with Angela Paul, Charley Fell
Love this route. Charley led P1 which I've led previously and I found it harder this time, maybe because I'm fairly unfit at the moment. I led P2 which I've 2nded before and also led P3 which I looked at last time but couldn't commit to more than the first move back then. Went up it this time and it is very committing but there's good gear when you need it. Excellent pitch and a great climb.

Led P1! Lovely climb with two good pitches.
charley - AltLd O/S - 14/May/14 with Ange, Kev
Not sure why this is 2*? The bottom pitch is a dirty choss fest, the top is polished to a shine and the middle jungle just adds to the crapness...
maria85 - AltLd O/S - 05/May/14 with Jules
Rockmonkey1977 - 2nd - 04/May/14
A real delight to climb! The bottom pitch required a really 3D approach with a tough and cramped up crux through the roof. I think I pirroetted. Must have cleaned up pretty well since last person climbed it- not chossy and no problems with loose rock. Top pitch was harder but in total contrast. Happened upon this route accidentally, we only realised we weren't on Clapton Crack at the first belay. 2 stars all the way. probably best climbed as a 2 pitch route.

Great route.P1 steep and sustained at top- but never to strenuous as you can chimney/bridge to surmont the overhang/bulge.P3 Initial crack harder than it looks- slippery jam/faith in friction for right foot to reach a good hold- rest of pitch in a great position and straightforward.Suggest HVS as per new guide book.

First pitch up broken(ish) corner to beneath overhang. Lots of good nuts at this point, but watch for loose blocks. Gaining overhang a bit pumpy, requiring a wide bridge. Looking down route looks very steep.
Second pitch only a scramble.
Led third pitch, looked okay but was found to be quite hard work, as the crack puches you over on to the blank right wall. Good gear tho, if you can place it.
