Pitch 1+3. Good lead by Piers on a bold pitch 2. Dirtier than expected for 2 Star Borrowdale route. Definitely worth it's stars!

The worst route of the weekend. Dirty, loose, unprotected, very scary. Well named, what a pile of S**T. Why this gets any stars is beyond me. Keep away!

I led pitches 1 and 3. Colin led pitch 2. Chossy trees on first and last pitches! Fair run-out on the top pitch too.
Phil West - AltLd O/S - 05/Apr/12 with victim of mathematics

Led P2. Good climbing, especially through the steep groove, but quite bold. The exit through the hanging gardens of moss at the top was a bit Gogarthian.

Missed out first pitch, ran the next two into one. Well protected, excellent climbing, straightforward for the grade. A couple of loose blocks halfway up pitch two.
greenroom - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/11 with Tom Swannick

Excellent 4b climbing but dubious rock, ledges and some sketchy pro make this a serious climb. Dude on the shroud next door pushed off a telly sized block as I came up to the p2 belay missing his belayer by eight feet and an old guy at the bottom of the crag by about the same. One of those 'dont roll a six' moments.

oh dear- got to the first belay then z had a total epic nd got stuck at belay 2 in the dark. Luckily hthere was enough slack for me to ab down on but he needed mike and leif to rescue him. Me and mike had to walk up the next morning to get the ropes and gear out!!

John Kettle - AltLd O/S - 09/Aug/06

This is a rather serious route, more so than the description suggests. Pitch 2 is I think 4c and the gear is very poor where it matters. Bottom end HVS? Very good route, though, quite adventurous and exciting.
