Duck Flight*** HS 4a
[The big traverse of Pandy Outcrop, 2 kb]2 pitches. A really enjoyable and escapable girdle across the main slab. Start at the base of the descent gully as for Villeta.

1) Move up to follow the obvious traverse crack rightwards to the grassy crack and further following excellent jugs to belay on the obvious block ledge 15ft below the top.

2) Step up onto the slab above the belay to reach a horizontal finger crack moving right along this to the arête. A steep swing down right into the grove will prove easier than it looks after finding the hidden hold! Continue right across the slab at the same height to the next arête which is rounded to finish up a roof crack. (Cicerone)

Lovely route, though middle of first pitch made for interesting climbing as had to brush off a bit of dead (lichen maybe?) to gain any footholds or handholds. Second pitch was more thought provoking, and did create a little too much rope drag with my placements and not enough extension. All looked and made brain think was hard but when came to do the moves it was actually quite easy.

A good route where the crux may well be not where you think it might be... Lead, then reversed first pitch as second didn't follow. Abbed to belay and completed 2nd pitch.
