Soft touch at grade.
Originally called Crewcut when climbed by Doug Scott and Ray Gillies of Nottingham Climbers Club. This was a route eyed up by Pete Crew but he was beaten to it by Doug and Ray. Les Farrah and I were on the aproach to the climb when Crew and his rope buddy appeared and saw Doug and Ray already well up the route. "F***ing Scott" he shouted". In answer to Dougs name of the route when the official guide came out (edited by Crew) the route was renamed to expunge the slight to himself.

P2. Pitch 1 was really loose in the groove, kinda scary. Pitch 2 hard but very well protected, almost slipped off because it was a little greasy.

Led P1. 1 star route compared to others on main cliff.

People who think this is E3 obviously have no idea what an E3 is. E4 6a and no soft touch. Was a tad sweaty for us but even then

Led pitch 1. Bob had to dyno and reckoned it was E5 6b and I won't argue. Very hot and sweaty and a lack of handholds on the crux. Great footwork by me if I say so myself. Pitch 2 brutal finger jamming. A great Gogarth classic and very pleased with it.

Seonded first pitch - much harder than it looked! Fell twice at the crux of the second pitch, lowered down and let Felix lead it. He found a much better way, which didn't feel so bad. Classic : ) Only E3, hardest moves were hard 5c/ soft 6a at a push.
