βeta: The description in Lancashire Rock for this route is misleading, and describes ‘Not Scary’ (E3 5c/6a). Scary Monsters stays left of the new pegs and is an eliminate. Not Scary climbs immediately to the right of the new pegs - this is the natural line.

makower-t 6 Feb Lead RP Did the line direct up to the left peg (Not near the two newer ones on the right). Felt really good after working it on a shunt several times.

Sam Marks 7 Apr, 2019 Lead RP Looked for the lines and moves on ab rope, climbed the e5 line, more or less following brown streak from bottom of the buttress (good climbing). Is possible to clip the new lowest peg on right, before doing a move up left groove, which reduces danger a bit so felt maybe a bit soft/e4 but still bold. I believe the e3 line must come in from the right of the lowest peg instead. Next peg looks like original knife blade (or maybe that’s the peg to left tho that’s not a knife blade and we reached right and used it for doubting). Maybe this should be split into two different routes which meet in the middle... Robbed of Doubting Thomas, too short, even on ab!

Gus 14 Jun, 2016 Lead Felt like E5, with the crux move up and right from the one peg (which can be backed up with a bomber wire) being pretty tough for 6a! Wonder if those that found this easy climbed to the right to the new cemented in pegs??

tmawer 10 May, 2015 Lead RP Led after a quick top rope climbing just right of the pegs all the way, and well away from Sleeping Sickness (which I did first). Seemed more like 5c than 6a, and perhaps E3. Loose hold above top peg that I suspect will soon blow on someone!
