A varied group, with some good mid-grades at the Laurel and Hardy and desperates at Kit's Boulder, which is most easily reached from the Kirkstone. Kit's has some classics and an amazing excavated platform for landings. Please don't dig any more, or the boulder may roll away! Guidebook page 98.

Figure out what constitute holds on the black streak, then use them to reach the top. Ultra fingery.
