Jeffcoat's Buttress** HS 5a
[Jeffcoat's Buttress, 2 kb]28m, 2 pitches. A route with an arduous (and avoidable) start. Using the chimney start lowers the route to a more amenable HS 4b. 1) 5a, 18m. Climb the fingery polished scoop by a long reach, or avoid it by the chimney on the left. Weave up towards the overhangs, pulling over a bulge with difficulty to enter a groove. Trend right below the huge roofs to the 'pipe' stance. 2) 3c, 10m. The pleasant jamming cracks on the right are awkward to enter and soon lead to the cliff top. © ROCKFAX

Found this fun, lead both pitches. Took the easy chimney start as hadn't climbed for months and it was slimey. Traversing out on very green and slimy ledge was spicy. Top bit ended a bit too soon.

With Phil. He led the harder first pitch with the hard start. I had to resort to the easier chimney start having failed to do the hard moves. I led the second pitch - not much gear unless you have the right cams, but it's full of juggy holds. Climbing in a hailstorm made for extra interest.

Made a general pigs ear of the first move and fortunately there was no one around to see some really poor technique! After that everything gets much easier. A very nice route. Alsion lead and placed a no 2 freind which she knew was irretrievable as soon as it was in. Unfortunately for us it was nearly dark by the time we'd both had a good go at trying to get it out!!

A pretty darn good route. The direct start is hard but ok as long as you commit. Def 5a. The end of pitch 1 has an airy feel, the only thing that slightly let it down was a couple of dubious pieces of rock.
