<< Bowfell Buttress Eliminate
Ask Ted >>
|102m, 6 pitches. Not a route to be done in the wet, a combination of grassy ledges and greasy green rock makes for a less than fun experience! Start about 20m to the left of the far right wall, 5m right of the smooth face of air on a bowstring, up the obvious diagonal groove. Meander up the right side of the buttress, past several grassy ledges to a corner ledge with a good stance. Continue up the gully wall in a similar vein to a slightly balancey traverse across to a smaller butress (crux). From here climb to the top of the butress, and escape off down either side of the butress, or over the back to join up with one of the approach routes.|

had difficulty finding our way. a couple of brilliant sections though. just as much grass as rock it would seem.

Logbook description is not easy to follow. Some pitches were fun, however others seemed to have more grass than rock!
