PUBLIC LOGBOOKS
This climb is in 129 logbooks, and on 12 wishlists.

Climbing as two pitches (P1 and P2+3), I lead P1. Start looks hard for the grade but great handholds. Mainly used small/medium nuts for protection. Very enjoyable!

After reading the description in the FRCC guide I felt lost the whole way up. In retrospect I didn't wander off route at all, but it didn't feel like that at the time.

Did pitch 1. Start position not clear from FRCC Lake District (Select) Guide. Most obvious start looked more like HS, but found another to the right.
