Beware of loose blocks on first pitch, belayed after the traverse on pitch two on more dodgy blocks. Top pitch great although the corner is dirty and damp.

Felt a bit tricky for VS and a little dirty still - surprised at this given the weather. The leader a couple of parties after us took a factor 2 fall onto the (bottom) belay as a hold ripped out - fortunately he was ok, but take care!

Classic route. Maybe the best I've done in the Lakes. Led pitch 1. Finished up the V-groove on pitch 2, which was bone dry. Good variation of bridging and back-and-footing up the groove.

Groove finish - best described as "traditional 4c". Must be sopping wet most of the time. Inept winter ascentionists have massacred the rock in many places, alas.

Fantastic route. I can't believe people miss out the top groove - it's THE feature of the route IMO. I'd also recommend belaying after the short traverse as the belay in the sentry box is uncomfortable and the gear isn't great.

Pete did very well leading the very bold start to pitch 1. I could see no reason for grovelling up the groove at the top of pitch 2 when there was a superb crack and pillar up which to finish. Apologies to FRCC. Although weather was very good (over 105F on Centre Court!) it was so cold here that my fingers were all dead by the time Pete had reached the mid height belay! An inspiring route.
