A great route in great condition. Apart from a few ledges on the first pitch the turf was bomber. Cracks mostly ice free. Crux pitch packed a real punch although found absolutely nothing like "two teeth" and a "flake handrail" but followed the line everyone else seems to climb. Crux is well protected apart from last few metres which is hard and runout; if the cracks were iced it would be very serious. About 180m of lovely grade III ridge romping to the top after the difficulties. write up here: http://www.mistymountainhop.net/2015/01/shadow-buttress-b-bells-route/

Good lead by Andy on the crux. Crap turf.

Hard graft in poor and wild conditions. A long day.

Superb route and should attract more attention than it does, definitely a Patey route.

worthy of the two stars it gets. steep, exposed technical crux pitch with plenty of meat. good climbing throughout. first V6 lead!
