Arrived late aft/eve, led the crack to the tat on the shoulder. Rob 2nd then topped out doing the awkward mantelshelf. I followed then enjoyed the sunset. Down-climbed with the rope hooked over the corner as re-assurance? then rapped off on the tat back down. Scrambling over the screes in near darkness to Beck Head (Bivvy)

Probably to be climbed (skated) for historical reasons only. In that regard: impressive. In most other regards: a short, horribly polished and not very striking pinnacle route. Tat on shoulder, no need to downclimb whole thing.

Aparently you can loop the bottom of the overhang on opposite side of the needle for the belay, would have been good to know. spicey in boots and foggy conditions

Again with another partner who refused to lead to top block as it "looked scary". Managed to find a decent bit of gear on the top block this time off to the left, a funny nut.

First major walk in we've done for a climb and the day turned out to be quite an adventure! Walked in from Seathwaite via the Scramble next to Taylorgill then along the Climber's Traverse from Styhead pass. Worked the start of the second pitch mainly due to nerves and secured belay with loops down to 2 breaks and a third loop to my second. Belt and braces but good practice although time consuming! My second put loads more gear in on the way down to protect my descent which was a very good move. Ended up walking back with head-torches on! Left a blue no7 rock under the block after spending 20 freezing trying to remove it.

An epic day. set off at 8am from Leeds. Took the direct route up Gable via the screes. Very hard work. The first pitch was fine and a good sling was all that was needed for the anchor. Could have done with more large gear. The second pitch was scary as hell. Lots of good gear in the first break before a frightening move out over a 100 ft drop. Then an unreliable looking nut goes in the corner on the left hand side before you top out. To anchor I dropped loops of rope down and hooked them round the breaks about 4 feet below. My advice would be to leave the gear in place for the descent as the descent is even worse. Especially if you get cramp in your thigh. Surffing down the scree was great fun though. Take some old trainers and see how quickly you can get down.

My first semi-epic before going to Uni, camped at sty head tarn for a few days walking up all the hills nearby and did napes needle. Tent blew down in a storm at night and had to walk off the hill in the dark very wet and cold in non-windproof mac and jeans. Paul who I was with threw up outside the tent after having spent too many days eating potnoodles beans and crisps!
