Arc'teryx Lakeland Revival. I led both pitches. P1 surprisingly good after a heathery start, the cracks were nicely exposed, more like 4b than the advertised 4a. P2 brilliant, tricky but well protected cracks and a nice bit of back and footing, then lots of heather. Final groove much better than it looked as the climbing was on the clean wall to the right. Overall about HS 4b *

FRCC guidebook gives it MVS (4b), which seems about right.

Apart from the interesting first part of the second pitch it was pretty scappy and uninspiring.

Top half only. Good lead by Charlotte. Crux is harder than 4a!

MVS 4a 4b in guide book. Did 2nd pitch first :) best of the weekend, loads of med - large gear (take extra) rock a bit smooth at the bottom but of good quality even where overgrown. Nice crux move standing up from the chimney (dont get your gear caught). 1st pitch worst of the weekend (scramble-crux-scramble), waste of time advise ignore and walk up to 1st stance.

Climbed p2 only. Very good route, even the upper groove has clean rock and good protection amid the heather.

Also before hand tried Laugh Not - got half way up but couldn't do crux so escaped onto route to the left and up that wall instead.
