I agree, the start is awkward! Part of an epic day on Scafell. Descent to campsite in head torches!

Awesome route! Felt a bit harder than VS, the start of the first pitch was quite hard, and then second pitch looked scary as the gear all seemed a bit shite! James made some funny noises getting up that one

Lead p1, and found the start bloody hard due to lack of getting out. Incredible route, loved every minute. Much better than MGG. Richard did a cracking lead of the second pitch. Would definitely do again.

odd atmospherics, enveloped in and out of high humidity cloud, t shirts and shorts in cloud so warm, then it would precipitate slightly and the cloud would lift. Not a great view for David belaying though. Felt like i had climbed one of the great classics, an amazing experience but took the shine from the rest of the day. 1931 - can you imagine.

Chuffing hard start for a VS. Needed assistance from the big Perlon hold. Second pitch is delightful stuff.

How can anyone say the second pitch is a disappointment?! It's the best pitch! Moves felt a little tricky but still around 4c, allot of it's on your toes. The slab particularly, on the second pitch felt exposed and protection was run out, I've climbed HVS's that felt easier to lead.

What a treat. This route has it all - technical, airy, strenuous overhang, intricate slab sequence, wonderful positions all the way through. Cold in the shade though (note to self: dont forget belay jacket on the east buttress).
