Adventurous V Diff with a two tricky sections - maybe worth Mild Severe. Watch out for loose rock - i pulled a 30kg block off.

Wish I had read this forum before attempting the climb. The handhold mentioned in other posts is no more - it fell off with my friend who took a 9 metre unprotected leader fall. Luckily the anchor held and we got away with bruises, a bleeding finger and a slightly sprained ankle. Had to abandon climb though.

Couldn't do pitch 2. There looks to be a hold pulled off to the left of mantle ledge. Surely this move is Severe at least.

Avoided pitch 2 and didnt much fancy the steep cracks of pitch 3, but they can be avoided too by stepping left and going up an easy slab. The remaining 2 pitches had tricky but rewarding moves. Hard for a VDiff: maybe just about HVD I should think.

The rock around the small horizontal crack at the crux pitch (which niceley accepts a small cam) is now loose and wobbly leaving you with little faith in the gear. This made things all the more entertainting!

Good quality mountaineering route with some challenging moves for the grade.
Peter Metcalfe - Solo - 03/Sep/07 with Langdale Scramblers

Bit tough for VDiff unless I went off route! Finished the day going up the Old Man!

clean and dry - an early morning ascent on a very cold day, on the way to Dow Crag; came back down later to find the fell had been closed due to Foot and Mouth outbreak
