Bailed and used the left crack. Went out right onto leaning buttress after.
Dogwood - Lead dnf - 21/Jun/15 with Michael Whitehurst

Desperately hard moves over the overhang if done purely on the right. Very well protected. So pumpy for a few moves! There is a very loose large block in the gully above which can easily be avoided.

Second attempt and I just made it. Really hard figuring this one out. Exhausting.

dr_botnik - Lead dog - 04/Mar/14 with Phil Taylor

Found it nails! Pulled round the lip on third attempt and had to fight my feet slipping on some green. Really powerful, elimnated the LHS entirely. Pitched after the overhang, brought Henry, Adam and Joe up as Leah couldn't get the move. Joe lead a second pitch.

Not sure how this is independent of Leaning Buttress Gully, unless you're meant to avoid bridging, in which case it's certainly harder than VS. Good fun all the same.

Martin took a fall on this, and stopped just short of the floor. Couldn't retrieve the wire so a number 4 is now in-situ! I am tall and found the move ok.
Ragnaar - 2nd O/S - 15/Jun/11 with martin hirons

Better than it looks, tough moves to get out from under the block for a VS.
AsleepOnBelay - 2nd O/S - 14/Jun/11 with Steve PCC

fell moving through the roof. lowered and climbed leaning buttress gully.
gb83 - Lead dnf - 04/May/11 with Rob Mitchell

Bugger me, what a struggle and tutoring Paul in correct belaying technique at the same time! First route of the day, what a warm up.
