Bottomless Buttress* HS 4b
[Pitch 1 Bottomless Buttress, 3 kb]30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A worthwhile and enjoyable climb that is in the main well protected and on good holds. Start on the right-hand side of the big undercut buttress.
1) 4b, 15m. Climb the corner on the right and traverse left to gain the front of the buttress. Two cracks lead to the fault-line and a good ledge (large nut belay).
2) 4a, 15m. Climb up for 5m then move right to climb a corner to finish. The final half of this pitch is on less than perfect rock. © ROCKFAX

A bit of an exercise in how to jam a rope and crappy swanage top outs - it ain't over till it's over.

Lead the first pitch and took a harder, higher line :/ Tidy climbing up to a big belay ledge.

Well what a great first pitch, coming up around the corner to be dived upon by a ferocious (huge) seagull. down climbed back to a ledge (of sorts) to see Mikey laughing his head off while, I continued to get bombarded by the gull. Love the adventures of Swanage :)

Sonia not been out for a while. Sonia led first pitch of bottomless b and got attacked by a sea gull. I did second and got a bit freaked out, ok a bit nervous then. Took me an age to find the route and I've done it a dozen times, what's going on with my head!

Lead both pitches. We abseiled in to boulder ruckle for the first time on my second day ever at Swanage and my first trip on trad in a year. We watched as a young muscle bound lad struggled on the crux getting onto the platform for the belay at the break and thought about prussiking back out. Decided to try the climb though and wasn't as bad as it looked.
