30m. Now retro-bolted and given F6b. Start from the large blocks at the top of the small scree slope to the right of the main crag area (as you approach the crag). Climb from the blocks to a short slab, ascend the short wall to the left of this slab to gain a rightward slanting groove. Follow the groove to it's end when the route then ascends a slab towards a large 'hanging' block - which looks dodgy but proves to be sound! Bolt belay on a large ledge above the block.

Bizarre place to climb. Glorious Lake District, but you are climbing above what is effectively a dump! Pretty sketchy with loose rock almost everywhere, even on well established routes. Strange rock too, granite apparently, but it’s not what you would expect. More like slate or shale. Weird stuff

Fantastic warm up route. 6a+/6b is now an appropriate grade.

Good climb, very of balance crux at the bottom with a superb slab higher up. Dave Led well & I struggled, Mel did a excellent supporting act giving route advice.

Classic in the big groove. Some oddly placed clips higher up make the route harder than it should be
