Easy to see why people go wrong on this route. I found the '93 guide description difficult to interpret.

Great rock until the 5th pitch (the scramble). One tricky move on pitch 4 but made a lot easier if you go the right way

Zolly Whitaker - AltLd O/S - 14/Sep/14 with Tom Eldridge

Hitched back from Cockermouth 'moving house via the crag'. Climbed in work clothes and trainers, first route for 51 days and it was like I'd blinked! Same friends, same crag, couldn't be better. And the route was just lovely.

led pitch one. Went about 4m to far, into the cavelike recess (with old sling in-situ). Climb out probable 4a. Final pitch contain very hard 4b move. Difficult rote finding on top pitch. Overall an unbalance route
JohnMetcalfe - AltLd - 28/Sep/13 with Ashley Smith

I lead pitch one and 3, then we went slightly off course as we didnt have the guide with us and ended up finishing up Woodhouse's Route so never actually did the HS pitch! Still fun but route finding marred the experience as we tried in vain to figure out where the fourth pitch was meant to be whilst standing on the easy terrace...
Tasmin - AltLd O/S - 16/Jul/13 with Craig Holden

Led P1 and P3. Thought the crux was more like 4c than 4a, and had to rest on the first attempt then managed to find the good hold. Not a very well-balanced route, as most of the rest of it is only V.Diff/Severe.

Lead the first pitch, quite glad too as it only gets harder! 4th (and last) pitch is the hardest.

VS finish, thought it was Woodhouse Route
ClareSenny - 2nd - 12/May/12 with Phil Pavey, Ian Parkhouse

not very interesting. Freezing cold in the wind. There was one pretty hard move in the middle. Felt much harder than 4a, perhaps because I was a little too high or couldn't feel my fingers or toes.
Joris.Roulleau - AltLd O/S - 01/Apr/12 with Mike Burnett, Libby Blundell

Roger Cruse - AltLd O/S - 25/Mar/12 with Kris

very windy, wet in parts, tricky route finding towards top.
bwestwood - AltLd - 13/Sep/11 with Ben Smedley

bsmedz - AltLd O/S - 13/Sep/11 with Ben Westwood

Got lost at the top - probably finished up a V Diff for the 4th pitch - possibly did the third pitch a bit wrong and ended up in the wrong place?? anyway - routefinding wasn't the easiest!

Climbed this route direct in two long pitches. Lead second pitch which started boldly with no runners available until a microwire can be placed about 5 metres out from the belay.
