Amen Corner was a nightmare. Yo-yo'd it so many times stitching it so that a fall wouldn't take out my belayer that I was too exhausted to finish it on lead. The other pitches were fine difficulty wise, but not very interesting.

dpiddock 08/Jul/17 AltLd O/S

Led p2, 3 and 5. What a naff 3 star route. Loads of short pitches so most of life is spent on belay ledges swapping gear. Wanders all over the shop so we didn't attempt to run any pitches together. Amen corner (p3) is horrid. Maria went up and down so many times trying to get the moves on lead before admitting defeat. 2015 Wired/FRCC Lake District Rock guide has it as a 4c pitch.

Rob84 29/May/16 AltLd O/S

Possibly the worst 'classic' route in the Lakes? Loads of tedious short pitches which would be a pain to link due to the wandering line. Completely unremarkable ledge shuffling with one savage, hideously polished 5m corner that probably warrants a tech grade of 5a (significantly harder than any move I've done on a Lakes VS). I guess this retains its 3 stars and S grade for some bizarre 'that's what it's always been' reason but it's neither - if you're pushing into the grade beware! There are much better routes at S on the crag (D Route for instance has to be one of the best at the grade anywhere) - this is best left well alone.

Rambling route and Amen Corner too slippy and strenuous, probably 4c just for the 8ft of the corner. Lovely hot weather. Safest descent abseil back down to Ash Tree Ledge and then scramble back to gearing up area. Final steep scrambly bit often has a bit of tat to descend by abseil.
