22m. A flower growing out of the surrounding choss, If this route were at a better crag, it would be a classic. Climbs the obvious concave crackline in the centre of the blank face with sustained powerful jamming moves and deliciously technical footwork. In it's current condition, the bottom third of the crack is around 5c, the middle third 6a, and the top third is getting on for 6b.

dogged up on the o/s needed foot holds cleaning up a little, wasn't a big job thanks to the guys last year. Awesome route real shame it isn't somewhere else! Lakeland esoterica *** never e5 or 6b maybe the extra e is for the midges?

The top out sequence is so pumpy. It scratches at my brain that I cant lead it clean yet! time! ha

First time today, second total, unclipping as I went. Was right on the limit, but encouragement from James pushed me over the lip. Then had 2 attempts on TR placing gear as I went. Neither clean, but very close. All that's left is to get on lead. Pre-cleaned the top today on abseil, so in a pretty tidy state at the moment.

Really awesome little route! Dogged the lead on first try. TR after, Top move feels awkward. I will be back for the lead when its dry!

Managed all the moves, but stringing them together is tough. Only had 1 attempt tonight though, and am confident I can get it with a couple more. Currently very dirty, and forgot a brush. Top slab was unclimbably caked in moss, but brushed off what we could with shoes/hands etc. Will ab down first on next visit and clean it all properly.

Little bit grimy so gave it a brush and I fired it off straight after placing kit on lead, absolutely brilliant climbing and an awesome view to top out to. 3* classic at any other crag.

Brilliant route! It's great to see it cleaned up properly from it's once grimy state. Pre-placed one wire near the top that would be totally murder to fiddle in on the lead. Took a silly fall about a third of the way up the crack on my first headpoint attempt; Pulled the rope and tried again.
