Good lead by Beth. Felt quite exposed, even as a second, but enjoyable.

A bit of cheeky hidden jug funding makes this an absolute peach. A few nice jams and a plethora of gear, quality VS.

James led after accidentally setting up the harder right route...

Good route. Plenty of gear.

Found the middle section very awkward, mainly due to going blind and hence failing to use the large obvious foothold. Then got all worried and lowered off. On seconding it (having carefully noted the foothold) it was ok, but tough for the grade.

Much better than it looks. Follows a wide crack that you soon discover cuts the buttress completely in two.

I think we did an amalgamation of 2 routes... Al did well going direct over the bulges, and I went too far left!
