Was going to join some pitches but prevented by rope drag. Hard for Severe let alone VDiff! Tried the step-of-low-block version of pitch two but couldn't find either gear or holds so went for the high "gymnastic" version which I thought was a good HS 4b. Took the variation finish at the top.

difficult to find - to the leftish of the lake, high up. 4th pitch hasan unrotectable descent for 2nd would be better to spot the 2nd down and belay from the block. last pitch is grassy but has some good moves, fun mountain day out. loose blocks and flakes, test everything.

Sidestepped the 2nd pitch. Good fun if a tad dodgy in places, (pulling up on bunches of grass / some loose rock).

Sept 2014 - great month for climbing in sunshine. Impressive and peaceful location, no other climbers. Lovely rock. One tricky/bold move. Combined it with a circular walk.

Adventurous V Diff with a two tricky sections - maybe worth Mild Severe. Watch out for loose rock - i pulled a 30kg block off.

Wish I had read this forum before attempting the climb. The handhold mentioned in other posts is no more - it fell off with my friend who took a 9 metre unprotected leader fall. Luckily the anchor held and we got away with bruises, a bleeding finger and a slightly sprained ankle. Had to abandon climb though.

Couldn't do pitch 2. There looks to be a hold pulled off to the left of mantle ledge. Surely this move is Severe at least.

Avoided pitch 2 and didnt much fancy the steep cracks of pitch 3, but they can be avoided too by stepping left and going up an easy slab. The remaining 2 pitches had tricky but rewarding moves. Hard for a VDiff: maybe just about HVD I should think.

The rock around the small horizontal crack at the crux pitch (which niceley accepts a small cam) is now loose and wobbly leaving you with little faith in the gear. This made things all the more entertainting!

Good quality mountaineering route with some challenging moves for the grade.

Bit tough for VDiff unless I went off route! Finished the day going up the Old Man!

clean and dry - an early morning ascent on a very cold day, on the way to Dow Crag; came back down later to find the fell had been closed due to Foot and Mouth outbreak
