Zack led pitches 1 and 2; I led the rest. Moving together. Made slightly more exciting because I forgot the nuts and slings, leaving us with 5 quickdraws, 5 Alpine draws and 7 small cams... (oops) Avoided the MVS chimney bit because a) we were wearing backpacks b) it was sopping wet c) lack of gear other than small cams d) Zack was on holiday, and squirming up a wet, awkward chimney did not appear in his holiday itinerary.

A superlative route. The first pitch looked like a scramble but turned out to be the hardest - certainly because it was the first pitch, but also because the "awkward steps" are sodding awkward. The second, traversing the bracket, was an interesting compromise between the fear of falling and the fear of rope drag - technical, exposed and satisfying. So far in, we felt sure were actually on an HS 4c. The "Neat Bit" was more amenable - gloriously exposed, but never too hard. Seconding it felt a bit bold, as the leader seemed to feel protecting the traverse would detract from his second's enjoyment. The left hand chimney looked like something that's been talked up a lot; in a word, disappointing; certainly less inspiring than the right-hand chimney, which provided sufficiently illicit pleasure. The last pitch was a good romp - thoughtful and open. Less enjoyable than the ascent was abseiling 100m in a gale... Better not to recall. On the way home, we stopped by Langdale Boulders to exhaust ourselves on some enjoyable sandbags.

Great route, I lead bracket pitch and top pitch (did in 4). Minimal gear (had 5 nuts + slings...), big boots, proper raining on last pitch all made for bit of an adventure. Shins scratched up from all the crawling, turns out wet trouser material is more grippy on wet rock than B2's!

Did the optional VS start which was very pleasant climbing. Picked the wrong spot to belay and ended up re-belaying down on the ash tree slabs ledge. Helen lead the superb bracket pitch. Did the MVS narrow chimney optional pitch which is exposed and superb. Helen lead the final slab pitch. Fantastic climb; can't wait to get back back to this crag.

asmith37 22/Apr/11 Lead O/S

Led 6 pitches, 1&2 and 5&6 would have been better combined. Considered myself of the stout variety and chose the easy right hand chimney. I hand traversed on the bracket pitch (no-one else seemed to that day) which felt a little out there, does the large block seem worryingly loose? Not great when you gear is a large nut behind it! The final slab was superb.

Should be called Bracket and Thrutch. Bracket is a novel traverse. Left hand Chimney (the oft dodged crux) was easily 4B/C, if done, it comfortably makes the climb HS. Grunted and thrutched up it as tradition dictates and loved every heave! Bring your tweeds.
