Mistakenly started via Poacher. Spoils the route a little, as nothing else is quite as hard. Study guidebook carefully to find the very devious original line.

Ian Jones 09/Apr/11 2nd O/S

Very tough for the grade but not helped by Dan taking the Whit's End starting crack. Spoke to at least 10 other climbers who agreed the guidebook descriptions are poor. That should get a few backs up.....

Did the start wrong. Travesed out up and left from the belay then instead of coming back round to the right and under the bulge I ended up doing a scary pull rightwards over a roof and into the crack that runs up to the start of the laybacks. Don't know what this does to the grade but thoroughly enjoyed it whatever.
