This climb is an absolute belter: a truly superb route of 510ft. The description in the old Borrowdale FRCC guides is bang on - though obviously, those tree belays are now simply bleached stumps. Simply keep yourself within range of the gully on your left and you won't go too far wrong. If you enjoy having nice square grass covered ledges from which to belay then you'll enjoy this as pitch after pitch rolls by. Some climbers may dislike the occasional scrabbling through heather, but we found it fun when mixed with the exciting but 'doable' and well-protected pitches. The crux is virtually at the top: the climb to the thread belay in an enclosed corner is sensational. After this is a short and fairly straightforward traverse (protect your second, and belay in the gully). Merely a scramble to the top thereafter.

Beetham/Foyle May/1951.
