110m, 4 pitches. One the of great classic buttress routes of the Lakes. Starts just left of the foot of the buttress below a chimney. 1) 25m. Climb an open groove then a narrow offwidth chimney to a big ledge. 2) 30m. Make a tricky move up off the ledge then move left into the open groove line until an exit back right can be made onto a good ledge below a steep crack. 3) 30m. Climb the steep crack followed by some bold moves across the slab on the left and a traverse into a steep right facing corner (possible belay). Thin moves up the corner and the chimney above lead to a stance. 4) 25m. Move either left or right and climb easier ground to the top of the buttress. © ROCKFAX

The cold spring at the foot of of the river of rocks is a wonder of the lake district; still running and not likely to stop even this year. The route is a great classic mountain VDiff, with polished chimneys, exposure and great climbing. However I'm not surprised the short steep crack is now graded much harder in the new guide. Severe gets my vote. And you can picnic on the grassy ledge.

Disliked having a huge bag for P1 chimney as pretty polished and backpack was unwieldy. Topping out near Bowfell summit was so worth it. Only complaint is that it wasn’t longer of this varied and easy climbing. Not sure why UKC has it as VD however as yes most is Diff level but P4 definite 4b/c grade.

Webster 22 Jun, 2018 AltLd in walking boots. amazing route well worth the walk in. its neither vdiff nor HS, S4b seems fair in my book. most of the climbing is diff or vdiff but there are at least 3 sections of severe plus the 4b crux which is steep but safe and short lived.

We were a bit slow and I had to do the last pitch with head-torch... We got back to the campsite at 1am... + the weather was uncertain, still, good times overall :-)
