Takes the pillar of perfect rock in a fine position above Jack's Rake. The main pitch is one of the finest of its standard in the Lakes and is better protected than you might think with small wires. Low in the grade.

Led pitch 1 and 2 (main pitch). Amazing middle pitch, used the required cams up too early so had a "memorable" run-out at the top before the belay. [Team ahead of us nearly had a serious accident but were thankfully ok...came within a few feet of decking onto the rake from near top of 1st pitch due to partner not being anchored and falling when a foothold broke]

C Witter 18/Apr AltLd O/S

I led the first two pitches, as Ali gave me the cherries. He took the last pitch. All really enjoyable, in my book, though the second pitch is the stunner. Was really tempted to pass the lead for the second pitch, as HVS 5a is at the top end of my leading at present, and it looked bold as hell from the belay ledge. But, Ali egged me on and the gear kept coming. I was glad I led it, in the end. Small hands and feet but everything is a hold! Lovely rock. Really enjoyed it. Don't agree with detractors who think topping out not worth it: combined with Capella, what a stunning line - right up the centre of the crag! Wish I'd a photo of us en route from the Stickle Tarn weir. Last route of two golden days of climbing in Langdale.
