[dry grasp, 3 kb]The first two pitches are poor and it is recommended to abseil into the 2nd stance to climb the top pitch only. [Or just climbing all three pitches in one works fine too.]

Ticklists: Very good routes in the UK.

We walked all the way to the top and abbed down to just climb the main head wall. Good route but killer and rather iffy walk in/out.

Abseiled into the top pitch and saw the holds and brushed away a few cobwebs so definitely not an onsight. Really nice wall climbing in an amazing position high above the lake and Borrowdale.
