Route finding is difficult on the first two pitches. And the rock looks dirty and un-worn from below. As you make each move, clean holds come to your aid; however it takes a degree of faith to keep moving when the way forward looks improbable! We abbed off the top of pitch 3.

I think wellingtons and a shovel would have been more suitable than rock shoes and wires! The climbing was never very technical but the position is fantastic. Lovely views down Dovedale. Route finding early on was tough, although this could be down to is being early season with quite a bit of moss covering the lower sections.
Puma - Lead - 05/May/14 with Luke (YAC)

Was very wet and greasy, grassy, mossy etc! Would have been better off in boots than rock shoes! Need to go back and finish.

Classic adventurer's route. Very disconcerting route-finding early on, plenty of gardening, but worth five stars for the views form the belays alone.
