Ned led first pitch and I did second pitch. Just one difficult move really, bit exposed.

led top pitch which i seconded last year, and thought was quite easy at the time....this time it felt surprisingly pumpy finding and placing the gear, and fall offable exploring how to do the crux move. Found it, did it,give myself the onsight as I'd forgotten all about it, v happy!

I led pitch 1, very nice lots of holds and gear! One awkward bit and one steep bit. Chris led pitch 2, bit one move wonder?

Led the crux pitch. A tricky wee crux but very safe. Done in the rain and the arete was very slippy. Anyone who thinks this route is worth ** really needs to get out more. Barely deserves *.
Ian Jones - AltLd - 18/Sep/11 with Tim Clarke

e.sunnyside - 2nd - Aug/11 with Cal

It's an easy E1 only because the route is well protected and the crux move is very short, but, it is a hard strenuous move and it is not obvious. Good first pitch, but probably better to run it together as a single pitch.
DaveAtkinson - 2nd - 26/Jul/11 with Haydn Keith

Chris led as one pitch. Excellent route.

Easiest route done today and pretty soft for E1 as only one 5b move, though a bit reachy, Em found it very hard! First pitch is more sustained and fun climbing...

Found the top traverse harder than I expected, but I really shouldn't let myself be talked into warming up on an E1, so maybe that was the problem!

Led in 1 pitch. Very nice climbing, 1st pitch warranted 5a not 4c described in the Borrowdale Guide. The second, much shorter pitch was great, with a long long reach round to make the arete.
