We had hoped to climb Giant's Crawl but it was hideously wet and slimy, so we had a look at this instead. It was in slightly better condition, but still pretty unpleasant so we abbed off after P1.

Great route deserving of the stars made tricky by some slimy sections, well protected and good belays. Unfortunatly went right up the wall instead of left on the last pitch, and got benighted. Ended up around 15m above the 'easy' gully. One ab down the grassy slope and one stuck rope later we were on the terrace. Exciting finish. Wet scramble down was worth the 4 * cup of tea at the bottom.

Loads of debris still around after the big flake falling off recently. There's more still to fall from the area, so care required. Quite straightforward to avoid the debris.

Started the climb in blue skies but by the time we got to the final pitch water was running down the rock, the wind was whipping and there was almost no visibility! Everyone was soaked and freezing so we had to leave some gear and ab off which was quite an experience, especially for Anne as it was her first rap! The view down the rib was quite something. 2 hr walk back to the hut was a very wet one.

Flake is about to fall off, it moved today then stopped, see light under the flake and the soil between flake and mountain is collapsing - damp and slippery today, in clouds

We left the tranearth hut at 9:30 in the evening tohead to dow crag. Was slow navigating in the dark so it was 11:30 before we started. The rock was wet and as we went higher the cloud came in so we could not see for more than 2 meters in either direction. I lead all of the pitches and enjoyed every minute of it. Got to the top and took 45 minutes to find the way down a as the gully looked way to steep as a descent. Got back to the hut at 6 in the morning. Was great fun

Soloed route. Rock all fine with lovely holds and exposure, but the occasionaly committing moves kept it focused and interesting. Wouldn't have wanted it any harder. Seemingly endless, such a good way of getting to the top.

Boots, very wet, very windy which made the flake and last pitch interesting? Should be re-named after a Bon Jovi album - Slippery when wet.

Early morning start in icy conditions but the route was ice-free and clean so climbed in big boots with no ice gear. Came down to find the fells closed due to the Foot and Mouth outbreak.

Some history and memories here. My first big climb (aged 10) Dad lead, me in the middle, Kate Quinlan bringing up the rear. No harnesses, tied in round waist, old type nylon rope. A famous quote from me being (''Dad! when i clap my feet PULL'') still brings tears of laughter to the eyes at family get togethers. A long day,got back to Hoathwaite farm campsite about 10pm. Mum going frantic!
