My only advice is not to climb whilst it's raining, in muddy walking boots, whilst being puersued by the police. Great climb though.

Great route. Wouldn't do again. The police chased us away. And lots of holds broke off. Fun times!

Mike had done this on our first Winnats visit the year before, whilst Elbow had been airy enough for moi. Second visit I went for it. Easier than imagined, but a couple of 3c-ish moves which, boots and exposure included, make for some spice.

Very Easy for a VDiff, more like a Grade 2 scramble? Brilliant climbing though. Done moving together, changing leads as gear ran out. Need to improve our ropework before doing this on anything harder though! Lovely straightforward climbing
