110m, 6 pitches. Start at the left end of the buttress.
P1. Climb the slippery and dirty looking blunt rib to a sloping grassy ledge at the bottom of a corner. Belay off the rotten S-shaped stump.
P2. Step left and feel around the arete to find good holds. Swing around and climb the wall just left of the arete on positive holds. Use your nut key to dig for wire placements. Step right onto a ledge and a tree belay.
P3. Go right, climb down about 5 metres and quickly skip over the ant hill. Traverse further right to a small tree then climb diagonally up and right to the blocks of doubtful stability under the black roof.
P4. Step back left and climb a steep corner to a ledge.
P5. Traverse right past some trees and a large flake to a yew tree at the bottom of deep black chimney.
P6. Climb the lower chimney, over some jumbled rocks, then step left and follow the upper chimney to the top.

Led 2,4+5. Don't be put off by the start, it improves greatly. Still a lot of tottering choss in-between pitches 5 & 6 that's really only held up by a tree root.

Led 1,3 and 6. Starts off in a jungle but quickly onto good rock. Varied climbing throughout and good fun. Pitches 2,3 and 4 are great, the chimney pitch is good too, although not so fun for the second if they've got a rucksack on ;). Oh, the ants on the pitch 3 traverse bite... little gits

Met Jamie around 7.45 Rossthwaite, must have started climbing the route around 08:30. As other have said, good honest adventure. Don't let the first pitch put you off. After the grassy/mossy start a great 2nd pitch (maybe bold for VS?), 3rd pitch the ants were out in force. 4th pitch a couple of wobbly holds but not all that bad. Did the fantastic top pitch in failing light.

A route with everything, slabs, steep sections, traversing,down climbing,moss, lichen, grass,ants and loose blocks(the pointed prow at the end of pitch 4 will come down soon).

All the main pitches except the 10m traverse to the yew tree. The killer ants and jungle feel on the first pitch made this a total 3 star adventure.

Led the top pitch. A great climb. 'That hold' at the start of the second pitch is a god-send. First and fifth pitches are a bit dodgy but the rest is excellent.

asmith37 06/Jul/14 Lead O/S

Very slightly underwhelmed by this route. Maybe it was the overgrown 1st pitch, the loose rock, the hideous looking final chimney or just the thousands of huge ants! Pitch 2 probably had the best climbing but felt committing and not that well protected.
