The Butcher*** E3 5c
[Barra cruising The Butcher, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
Easy E3 or hard E2, the discussions will go on for ever. Start below the arete and climb a crack in its right-hand side. Make a satisfying move leftwards to a jug on the arete, then move back right to finish. Some people accidentally continue direct from where the crack ends which makes it about 6a (and proper E3!). © ROCKFAX

Much easier when you know what to do. First attempt 2 years ago involved me accidentally doing the direct finish (or not doing it and taking the ride!) This time it went well but still felt a bit goey. Intended to do Army Dreamers (again) but after the ab it looked nice and easy so just got on it.

Greasy at the bottom and a Jug full of water before the crux. Tricky pumpy climbing up to this. Put loads of gear in before going for it. E3 in damp conditions? Maybe if totally dry it would be hard E2? Whatever the grade, I had to fight the pump on this, as I'm not usually very good at steep, sustained routes. Absolutely three star classic!
