Vague description didn't help with first pitch. We scrambled / climbed this in trainers. Pitch 2 was a complete horror show, dirty and mossy with a generous helping of loose rock, oh and a poor helping of useful protection. Pitch 3 was an absolute delight. P2 felt like HVS 5a

Dirty, mossy, wet on and off route around wet bits and pulling on gear to get up. Not worth the long walk in.

Was disappointed at this Dolphin route! The climbing is as ugly and overgrown as the name would suggest.
