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.

It hurts to enter this as 'dogged'! Absolutely stonking route, was going steady pulling through the crux at the top when my right foot slipped very unexpectly and down I came. Went about 10 foot, longest fall to date. Got it fine 2nd time around (it was abit wet).

Fantastic layback route. 1st section is unclear from guide so strayed up the fine crack of Whit's End Direct before traversing into the corner.

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.

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! Utterly classic.
