Did the start wrong. Travesed out up and left from the belay then instead of coming back round to the right and under the bulge I ended up doing a scary pull rightwards over a roof and into the crack that runs up to the start of the laybacks. Don't know what this does to the grade but thoroughly enjoyed it whatever.

Did a slightly different start - climbed directly up a thin layback crack to the base of the main crack. Great moves up the final part of the crack.

A good route that's even better if you do the lower part of Whit's End Direct

Possibly my favourite pitch in the Lakes. I'd advise anyone doing it to start on the first pitch of Whit's End, as it makes a much better route.

My biggest disapointment with this climb was that it finished - just wanted it to go on and on. Going light on placements increases the enjoyment!
