Crag seemed seriously overgrown. Didn't look like anyone had been on it in a while. Started initially up original start. Got bored of kicking steps in to mud and fighting brambles. Re-Started as for Hangover, finished as for hangover. Dove crag does not seem to be a crag, so much as a scree that hasn't happened yet. GRIM.

Via the first two pitches (combined) of Hangover as the first pith of Extol was overgrown.

Filthy, loose, terrifying, gardening as you go - horror!! You expect a bit of that in the Lakes but..... Reversed from a good runner to finish up Hangover...equally (just about) as scary.

Knew nothing about the history of the route, just that it was in Hard Rock (which Ken distributed) and he wanted to climb it. Well worthwhile, not too scary.

Encouraged by Bob Milward's ascent the previous week. Got a small nut on 4mm perlon at the first steep groove, then another on a large spike but then nothing until above the crux wall at the peg. The hardest route in the guide at the time!
