Adventurous V Diff with a two tricky sections - maybe worth Mild Severe. Watch out for loose rock - i pulled a 30kg block off. stratandrew - AltLd - 15/Jun/13 with Clare Harris, James Hoyle
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!

En-route to sprinkle Little Gordon's ashes at the top of Dow.

Good quality mountaineering route with some challenging moves for the grade.

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
