Rob84 28 Apr Solo I went with low expectations - scrambling in the Peak must be pretty lame right? Wrong! What a fun way to spend a couple of hours on a questionable weather day.

buxtoncoffeelover 30 Jan Solo Lots of snow, but no climbable ice. Bypassed the very wet major falls on the left with dodgy scrambling up snowy heather. A fun afternoon

keithm999 12 May, 2018 Solo O/S River was dry so I went directly up the middle from bottom to top. Stuck mostly to the right of the waterfalls where it's normally too wet. The highlight of the day - nearly breaking my ankle running away from a bee.

jrprice 25 Nov, 2017 Solo Very greasy to begin with but rock gets a little better as you move further up. Holds are mostly very good and there are a few different options of route depending on the water level and how wet you want to get. I could not climb straight up the largest waterfall so had to go up a chute to the left (will come back in summer to do that). There are 4 main waterfalls that provide good scrambling, there are a further half dozen that follow that are around shoulder height that are fairly straight forward to climb. I would class as a high grade 1 if it was not for the largest waterfall which has a 7-10 meter drop and some exposure even up the chute which pushes grade to a low 2 for me.

Gerry_Doncaster 18 Jun, 2017 Solo Great in any conditions. I'd done this scramble twice before and each time it was very wet and greasy. It was nice to do it in unusually dry conditions this time because many harder variations became possible including a direct ascent of the big waterfall pitch.

Mike505 9 Jun, 2014 Solo No too wet for us but did get very slimy near the water falls. Well worth a visit when Wales or the Lakes are too far to travel for the day. Probably worth combining it with other scrambles in the area though.

Jake463 3 Jul, 2013 Solo β Got covered in green muck and soaked to the skin by the waterfalls, but was curiously satisfying. If it wasn't for how wet and slimy it was it would be a pretty straightforward scramble.
