A good route up the clean slabs to the left of the main buttress. Enjoyable climbing with adequate protection in the main but the last few moves are a little bit run out.

Ticklists: Best 25 BORROWDALE VS/HVS's, Lakeland Revival 2015.

A bit minging and never really sure if I was on the right line or not. Poor protection. Matt didn't bother bringing my shoes up!

Nice technical slab climbing. Found just enough gear and some of it was even ok.

Damp, mossy and unappealing with poor gear, so we didn't get started

Bill led I seconded Karl came up after. Slab wasn't as bad as I though but still hard. Looked like nothing there but there was. Long walk off.

Route needs a clean, but the climbing is good. Protection is poor until about 9m up

Felt bold and hard even for HVS 4c! A couple of 5a moves with poor gear.

Unless I'm blind, this is a seriously under-protected route. I'd give it E1 5a.
