Brush Off** HVS 4c
[It's a bit bold..., 3 kb]A good route up the clean slabs to the left of the main buttress. Enjoyable climbing with adequate protection in the main but the last few moves are a little bit run out.

Ticklists: Best 25 BORROWDALE VS/HVS's, Lakeland Revival 2015.

Route needs a clean, but the climbing is good. Protection is poor until about 9m up

Bill led I seconded Karl came up after. Slab wasn't as bad as I though but still hard. Looked like nothing there but there was. Long walk off.
