brilliant route, little bit of everything thrown in there, finished by stepping out and round on the nose ...... pretty exposed but once you trust your feet its fine.

tried to do this on an absolutely disgusting day just to get some climbing in, but determined as we were the muddy waterfall that it was forced us off after one pitch, keen to go back as pillar looks ace

Attempted as an epic day out due to the weather, but the first pitch was a bit of a disappointment (a waterfall and really broken). So by the time Pete got to the belay he had lost all psyche, and I was more than happy to bail to a warm fire, bottle of cider and a long game of Risk back at the hut!

I had just finished re-reading Rock Climbing in the Lake District by Owen Glynne Jones. A remarkable route finding masterpiece from the Golden Age.

Carmen led pitches 1 and 3, I led the rest. Seemed harder than the advertised grade (guide says Diff for all but the last pitch, we found it all harder than New West which gets VDiff). Very traditional!

A group ascent with schoolfriend Jim, his dad and Alan H who was writing 'Century on the Crags' at the time - very enjoyable history lesson on this historical climb on a suitably wet and gloomy day
