A superb line following the obvious crack over two bulges. Committing moves are needed for the crux moves (easier for the tall). Where the crack stops, mantle onto a ledge for a welcome arm rest before finishing up the pleasantly easing upper slab.

Gavin led this in the rain first as it was overhanging enough to mostly stay dry. After we couldn't find anything in a similar condition so Gavin suggested I lead this for lack of anything else to do. Bit wetter particularly getting onto the ledge before the easier head wall when I led it but generally I climbed it much better on lead than 2nding it.

OMG! Fannied it one move before the jug. Need to commit more, and just go for it.

decent little testpiece. two tricky moves which are hard until you get your foot up then they become easy.

Not my style of climb at all, good lead by Lex, seconding wasn't helped by the crowd of men at the bottom all saying they wouldn't fancy seconding it!

First trad route for years, piss easy for E2, more like HVS/E1 5c. Two very safe trickish moves with a relative amble elsewhere does not add up to E2. Nice warm-up with a hangover.

Pretty straight forward pulling up over the two overhangs and the rest is an enjoyable walk!

Really good route for posing - assuming you make it! Entertaining climbing round the roof - good pro.E1 in my guide (Borrowdale 1986) - E2 seems over-inflated.

Jon Read ??/1990 Lead

My first E1. Possibly my first E2 as well.
