Idleburger Buttress VD
[Kerri on Idelburger, larking around., 3 kb]A popular line that, although well-travelled, is still worthwhile. It is endowed with good gear on its hardest moves at mid-height. Start at a low ledge on the nose of the buttress. 26m. Move onto the ledge and work left on ledges for a few metres until it is possible to pick the easiest line up, then move rightwards to below a big overhang. Move right and then step up left to clear the overhang. Continue more easily past a cluster of bolts and finish leftwards. © ROCKFAX

Got lost. Nice cam placement under the overhang if you can bothered and feel the need. Took me ages due to going off route and getting stuck on a ledge for a bit. Nice move out of the corner. Set up belay at the bolts to give Adam a go (not because I got scared!), the little tyke.

Despite what the book says, sparse protection at bottom. Good climb, fairly sustained at VD

This secion to the far right of the Sea Walls is the most popular venue for outdoor pursuits parties doing abseiling and top-roping so beware the polish. On a damp morning such as we had today there are almost no conceivable foot positions that will give any friction whatsoever. This was our first route of a day spent ticking off the last few sub-HVS routes in the Gorge before pushing the grade and when I got to the top I seriously wished I hadn't bothered. I would not recommend this route to anyone.
