7m. The left arete of Contraband Buttress provides a technical examination. Climb with ease on good holds and pockets (gear) to a high crux mounting the ledge where neat footwork pays bountifully. A tricky route at the upper end of its grade.

Misleadingly straightforward low down compared to the top. Glad I saved the onsight from last time.

Quick clean and rehearse, squeezing this ascent in before we left. Easy when sequence is found and adequately protected. Good flash from Sam straight after (it had to be!)

Sam Marks 22/Jul/12 Lead β

Cracking, used Daves gear, first E3 flash!
