Fun and enjoyable route. I thought it warranted a grade V (5).

The punt paid off! Been on my list for ages, great to get it finally off. Collies step rather thin for feet, okay (ish) for axes.

A True Lakeland classic. Hats off to O G Jones soloing it back in 1893. Superb : )

P1,2,3,5 I linked P1 and 2, then did P3 as tennis court wall more my thing than Chris'. Traverse back into gully very bold, took a higher traverse on flakes and stepped up onto a ledge. Poor snow. Then stepped down into gully to climb up to beneath the chock stone. Chris led the collie step boldy with a tricam runner and I finished up the collie exit.

Excellent climb, very good conditions.

Shaw Brown 09/Feb/13 -

Great conditions, just the right amount of ice on the chockstone pitch. Backed off leading the 3rd pitch, George saved the day!

loved it, Colloies step was superb, although thin, perfect conditions, boot skied most of the way back down too what a great day.

Neve was good and turf still frozen but the ice was thin and wet, especially at the Collie Step. Excellent route with lots of character

NeilGriffiths 13/Mar/10 AltLd

Cracking day. Mostly direct so some steeper bits. Boot ski (and 100m uncontrolled slide!) descent virtually all the way down. Tremendous.

Nice route and conditions were OK. Mixed wall pitch and Collie Step pitch both good.

Great route with two superb crux pitches, and an easier final pitch finishing in a spectacular position. Fantastic. First led in 1893 or something which is pretty humbling.

Dave Warburton 06/Mar/10 AltLd

Brilliant route. Varied and very interesting as a three. Took a winger off the Collie Step, but jumped back on and did second time around, thin ice put me off. Great Neve everywhere else.

Great route,several tough moves, equivalent to scottish V,6.

with Steve Grove
Rydell 21/Feb/10 AltLd O/S

Plenty of spindrift pouring down but good ice in general, frozen turf in places and snow-ice. The cracked wall pitch was delicate as was Collies Step. Alot of clearing required to find pro, but once uncovered there is, in general, enough. Currently in awesome condition.

Andrew Barker 18/Feb/10 Lead O/S

A fantastic route cutting through some amazing scenery. The turf was all well frozen but everything was covered in an unhelpful layer of powder. There was plenty of old snow and some ice but this ranged from solid to very brittle and unhelpful. The pitch to the chockstone was hard and scary as there wasn't much for axes and the Collie step was pretty thin too.

Awesome day - clear blue sky, had the whole crag to ourselves. No ice as such but plenty of powder, well frozen turf and rime. About IV 5 under such conditions I felt.

Called it a day on pitch 3. Great mixed ground up to that point. no frozen turf or much ice so hooking & torquing most of the way.

backed off due to lack of motivation and one of the birketts swarming past us halfway up. at least he took his second axe out.
