80m, 5 pitches. More like a Mild Severe

AdamCB 11/Oct 2nd

In 3 pitches, pitch 4 in guidebook good value

Led all pitches. First two pitches inconsequential, but pitches 3,4,5 make up for it especially the steep wall on P4. FRCC Guide has the correct Grade: Mild Severe - I'd also propose a technical grade of 3c.

Assuming we were on the right route....it was bloody loose on P4, and felt harder than "mild" severe to me...

Bit of a sandbag at VD. MS as per the current guide (or HVD if they existed in the Lakes)would seem much fairer.

Ed ran pitches 1&2 together. I ran pitches 3&4 together, by far the best part of the climb, nicely exposed. Big gear handy on p3 & belay above p4. Top pitch is 2 moves then scramble.

Bottled the crux pitch. There's a Diff-ish option - on somewhat less solid rock - to the left of the arete.
