This climb is an absolute belter: a truly superb route of 510ft. The description in the old Borrowdale FRCC guides is bang on - though obviously, those tree belays are now simply bleached stumps. Simply keep yourself within range of the gully on your left and you won't go too far wrong. If you enjoy having nice square grass covered ledges from which to belay then you'll enjoy this as pitch after pitch rolls by. Some climbers may dislike the occasional scrabbling through heather, but we found it fun when mixed with the exciting but 'doable' and well-protected pitches. The crux is virtually at the top: the climb to the thread belay in an enclosed corner is sensational. After this is a short and fairly straightforward traverse (protect your second, and belay in the gully). Merely a scramble to the top thereafter.

got off route! went into the Ghyll eventually which turned into a mild epic with so much green moss.

Lead even pitches. big boots for first 6 but needed rockshoes for last 3 as soaking wet and tiny footholds in the groove. slippery as anything and plenty of knees used. Bit off route lower down - aim to stay right on the edge of the gully.

An old school mountaineers route and excellent adventure, especially when done in wet cold conditions and in big boots. With the last few pitches providing the main “interest” of the climb.
