<< What's Gone Is Gone
Klute >>
Climb the slabby wall left of Klute, past several poor breaks to some large blocks. Continue straight via cracks and flakes to a resting place below a short steep groove. From here you could simply top out on the right, but don't; fix some gear and pull strenuously into the groove to sinker holds and an easy finish.

Tough to second, one to lead next time.
riddle - 2nd O/S - 18/Aug/13

A repeat but I'd not led it before.

The yew right on the edge isn't ideal for belay/ab, and most will probably choose to use the larger yew a few metres upslope. Trouble is - if you ab from the higher tree there's a loose killer block over which the ropes run. Be warned!

Did we, didn't we??? Messed up due to gorgeous looking lead not finding way of Klute, which was the one we started on. But didn't mind because this one turned out to be nice anyway!

Spent too long faffing with gear in the upper groove and got pumped. Will have to return for the clean lead - it's a good route.
