Fine climbing up the walls to the right of Bleak How Buttress.

Ticklists: Best 25 BORROWDALE VS/HVS's.

Jeremy Wilson 13/Jul 2nd O/S

Fun climbing though never much harder than 4c. Definitely deserves grade though as the gear is not great in first half with sparse wires behind dubious blocks.

Didn't massively enjoy this, gear a bit naff, dirty, broken, wandering. Much preferred bleak how buttress

Great climb easy for HVS but the gear is paced and you can't get your first piece in for about 10m.

Dave decided to lead it as well for some mileage, having hardly been able to get out at all so far this year.

A superb pitch, though the gear isn't that great. one of the best at its grade in the valley, with in-situ lower off
