Heading to the lakes soon. Not climbed in a while. Any suggestions on a multi pitch Diff/V-diff that I have not done yet? (longer the better). Done all the classics: looking for a hidden gem. TIA.

"The Inside Route" at doves nest.  Most of it is hidden and there may be some gems in there if anyone was foolish enough to attempt it while wearing jewelry...

Truss Buttress if you haven't already done it. Sadgill wall, a little harder, but a fun adventure.

Grooved Arete (HVD)

Raven Crag Buttress (VD)

All sorts on the Napes.

There are two VDiffs on Harrison Stickle, Langdale - which are less often travelled.

Two good VDiffs and a great Severe at Wallowbarrow.

First pitch of Truss Buttress is nice; Kennel Wall is even better (MS ***)

Have a look at Grey Crag - some nice easier routes there that you can link up to get a fair bit of continuous climbing.

A cracking route! Well worth a look.

The face of Pike O'Stickle is pretty much my favourite place for scrambling (on the hard side!) or easy solos. The rock's superb (on the best bits near the top anyway) and the exposure sensational. Underrated venue for sure, go there!

Not terribly obscure but I really liked Olivers Variation on Gimmer. It just sidles across the face, ignoring all the much harder routes, without even trying!

Agreed, Oliverson's variation on Gimmer is top notch. And whilst at that crag, try Main Wall Climb too, that's VD and really nice climbing.

Head over to Grey crag, Buttermere and do the 3 climb link up. "Harrow Buttress", "Slabs ordinary" and finish with "Oxford and Cambridge Direct" you can then have a nice walk off High Stile and red pike!
