|12m. Contraband Buttress. A proud line asscending the corner crack, alternating between awkward and elegant moves; stepping left to finish. Sustained and well protected with mid to large friends. |

great route, really fun and interesting. Got abit scared by something living in one of the pockets, its breathing sounded like trees being chopped down!

Very good sustained climbing. probably the best example of what an HVS 5a should entail.

Excellent climbing and sustained, though a tad chilly on the day. What a find, not a bad spot to stumble across!
