first outing on Needle Butress - fine position - easy route with a couple of short lived interesting moves... not too steep or challenging... nice warm up...

Monk - Lead O/S - 09/Jun/07 with RUMC

First pitch was harder than I remembered on the mossy ramp. Second pitch is great. Didn't quite have the nerve to stand atop the pinnacle in the wind!
nikinko - 2nd rpt - 28/Apr/07 with Martin

The slab was nice and run out, and then a series of nasty moves with poor gear below me led to the belay. Second pitch was far nicer.
