Led crux pitch. Phenomenal, especially considering it's FA date. One of the more exposed HVS cruxes around, and the climbing up to that point is never trivial. Did the crux the 'high' way, according to the (not very good) guidebook description. Feels like top end of the grade.

Tony lead P1, and I did P2, after Bracket and Slab Climb approach (roped). The overhanging crux in P2 was OK, but I was surprised to find a 5c move at the slab above with the last trustable gear 8m below (not fully trusting an RP1 and side-placed poor Rock 2 above). In that sense, I felt it to be a bold E2 5c.

Fun warm up (needed it as fingers got cold in the wind), did it in one pitch without much drag at all by only placing eight runners and flicking the right hand rope once I had moved back right onto the face (Rachel had to untie it though). Only really a couple of tricky moves but some great positions and an interesting line.

Karlos 25/Jul/15 2nd dog

Led P1 clean, finding it tricky to get established on the traverse, but fine once there. On P2 after coming round onto the face I was confronted with another pair of twin ropes from another team/route crossing ours, with some gear right in the middle. Hung around for too long trying to figure out how to get though the tangle, which pumped me out for the powerful high reach right, so had to rest on rope. Bummer! Confident I could climb it clean without these distractions, next time.

Scrambled to start of traverse and belayed from there. John led both pitches as i had done Whits end direct. Traverse under roof was far to easy to feel like HVS, however the top pitch was absolutely nails, especially in the rain. don't know if John went off route but it felt stupidly hard and i nearly came off,narrowly avoiding a monster whipper due to lack of gear on traverse!

Decided to combine our rucksacks and carry up the climb. This turned out to be something of a mistake - pulling me off-balance for the traverse. It was more of a hindrance on the pumpy second pitch for Katie though! Great evening out with the crag to ourselves.

First pitch easy once committed, but ropes got caught under the flake. Lots of bomber gear before crux, but so tired once I'd pulled through that I accidentally did the hard direct finish. No gear, sketchy 5a climbing. Very scared!

I lead the crux pitch. Been wanting to do it for years. A perfect evening.

Tony Buckley ?/Jun/88 AltLd

I don't know why we did this on the same day that we did the Red Edge on Esk Buttress; it made sense at the time but did scant justice to two fine crags. It also involved a lot of walking on a hot June Saturday. We'd been to Esk Buttress first, then drove round to Langdale, parked the car and soloed up Middlefell Buttress on the way to Gimmer. My partner had the first lead, the undercling pitch; his choice, as he had history with this climb having got completely lost on the next pitch on two previous attempts. One of the advantages - for him - of us doing this on a sunny June evening was that the groove in which he belayed was in warm sunshine. I led the next pitch, which was straightforward enough until I'd clipped the peg and contemplated the moves to get round the arete. After stretching to arrange a runner in a thin groove just the other side (I have always been very inventive with runners. A long reach helps), and a few moments to summon up the necessary commitment, I did the moves and was soon happily belayed on the other side. On reaching the peg and the moves round the arete my partner exclaimed 'Is that really where it goes?' and on seeing my inventive runner added 'If I can't get that out easily, it's staying put'. He did it easily enough, and got my runner, and we were soon on top of the crag feeding midges. When we eventually got down to the ODG, we were both so thirsty that pints of water and beer went down within seconds...
