Guidebook description 'at the top end of the grade' is unchanged from the previous edition when it was graded Diff. So it should now really say 'at the bottom end of the grade'!

Ticklists: Connoisseur's Classic Rock, Kendal Wall's Best 100 climbs in Britain, Lakeland's Best Multi-pitch Routes up to HVS.

C Witter 10/May AltLd O/S

Very pleasant climb, in the sunshine, with a swim at Ulpha Bridge after. Joe might even have exclaimed, "Cor, Chris! This is almost relaxing!" -- although reports are yet to be confirmed. I lead pitches 1 and 3, Joe led 2 and 4. I wouldn't say it was a soft VDiff (as in UKC route description), but not sure where the "boulder problems" were, mentioned in the FRCC guide. We agreed that it's "consistently thoughtful", but without any distinct crux. Gear perhaps a little sparse on pitch 1. Lovely!

Guide book has this climb as four pitches but I linked 1+2 and then 3+4 to complete it in two. Caught another group of three at the first belay and then had to take a different line from the half way belay point to get past, ended up doing a short slab that was prob a VS. The rest was a scramble to the top with some fab grassy terraces to belay from.

Beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky and unseasonally very warm. Nice sticky rock but a paucity of handholds and protection heightened the sense of awareness. Nice ledges between pitches. Glorious views from belays and the top.

1st pitch was trickiest, and still a little damp. 3rd pitch was a beaut, with possibility to go straight up the face which was a bit more delicate than using the crack. 4th pitch: not ideal for a single 50m rope with a team of 3. I failed to notice the centre marker going ahead of me, leading to a somewhat awkward situation I don't want to repeat. Thought through it now, though, and worked out a few good ways to avoid too much risk. Twin ropes would be a good idea!
