Struggled with the initial moves, so ended up seconding the first pitch. Led the groove pitch and really enjoyed it.

An enjoyable route but the dead sheep at the top of pitch 2 was grim!!
Two Cams Tom - AltLd - 08/Jun/13 with Ash

Led p 0.75 (went wrong way at top of p1) and p2 (groove v good). Lost p4. Actually a pretty good route! And it's possible to do p1 in a balancey, non-thrutchy manner!
net - AltLd O/S - 04/Jun/13 with Neil P

Neil Pacey - AltLd O/S - 04/Jun/13 with Annette Smith

As with many others looking at the comments, found the first pitch very hard for S (lakes climbing guide). Pitch 2 awesome, wrong pitch 3. 4 not so nice.
joe hallam - Lead O/S - 26/May/13 with chelsey robinson, matt hardy

Extremely hard start, rest of the route was good, the second pitch being the best.. Apart from the dead sheep on the ledge at the top of it!

kato'sdad - Lead - 19/Mar/11 with Jon Lewis

Led first pitch (hell of a thrutch) as start of White Ghyll traverse which is a cracking 'must do' route. Nice upper corner second pitch to Hollins. Must go back and do the whole of Holins but someone else can lead first pitch next time.
