Climbed to half way, took the arete direct rather than trending left in a long 45m pitch with very little gear and interesting positions, some possibly HS moves which could have been on 'The Chancel' (not on UKC). Finished up above the chockstone of 'Megalith' which given the description in the new lake district rock is a HVS 5a pitch! Adventurous, loose, long run outs and hard. Well done to Sammy, next time we will take the guidebook with us.

Just spent hours on this hillside. 7am from Leeds back at 00:30...! lovely walk in from Borrowdale, climb, paddle in the stream. The route is nice enough if a little grassy but I never do routes like this. Favourite day.

Karlos 21/Jun/14 Lead O/S

Looks impressive from the ground and still an enjoyable mountain route, but climbing is a bit stop/start with lots of grassy ledges which breaks up the excitment/exposure/committment - but maybe that's what you want with a VDiff.

brilliant climb in an amazing location. beware of worrying loose looking chunks of rock above belay 5.

Learned some good skills for climbing as a three. Good way to get up Scawfell Pike for the first time! A number of memorable sections on the climb = couple of stars I suppose... :-)

Moved together for first half before meeting up with others and my chivalrous nature gained me a rucksack with a full rack and rope . Climbing with 2 rucksack is hard work. Utterly superb route.

Followed for the first 4 pitches, the final 3 were done as one and didn't follow the line of the route-climb the arete, head to the large block, climb the chimney until passed the wedged block, move onto the left hand face and climb this to the top (still enjoyable climbing). Conditions were far from perfect.

blue sky in mid October. Rock clean and dry. Quite a bit of jamming required and I think we did an 'alternative' finish that was quite a bit harder than v.diff

After eyeing up the line from Scafell crag recently we felt we had to do this route. It is a delightful route, probably worth ***. It is consistent in grade with good gear (a simple rack without cams should be fine) and excellent rock. There are no route finding problems and unlike some long Lakes VDiffs (eg Bowfell Buttress) there are no real out of the grade difficulties. All in all a great route for those lacking experience to gain some on a long mountain route. PS Debbie finally got her head on to lead the last two pitches after a desultory start.

Shared leads, I led pitches 3,5 and 7. A bit damp and greasy lower down, the upper pitches were fine. An enjoyable climb.

Done on a cold clear day. At the start the rock was greasy, and as we progressed it became icy too, which was fun in rock boots. At the top we unroped...then put the harnesses back on and rigged an abseil once we'd seen the verglas on the descent. And then we walked down to Borrowdale in the sunset and dark. Great day!
