Black Ball Line** VS 4c
[Black Ball Line, 3 kb]35m. A new route taking the right edge of the left hand section of Bulkhead Buttress.
Start below the large boulder lower down and to right of Oh Captain My Captain
Climb up onto the boulder and climb the right edge of the buttress stepping right into a wide crack which is climbed to a large ledge on the left. Up the centre of the slab moving right onto sloping footholds beneath the vertical cracks. Up the cracks onto a sloping slab. The continuation arete is easier than it looks but lacks runners, whilst the finishing crack has good gear but a rounded finish
