PUBLIC LOGBOOKS
This climb is in 145 logbooks, and on 9 wishlists.

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...
practicallypixie - AltLd - 24/Aug/14 with Duncan

Bit of a sandbag at VD. MS as per the current guide (or HVD if they existed in the Lakes)would seem much fairer.
D Berry - Solo O/S - 20/Aug/14

Great route and pitch 4 by the cave is awesome ( linked 3 & 4)

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.
