Stepped Buttress E1 6a

Rockfax Description
14m. An eliminate but with some good moves. Climb the centre of the slab (V2) to a ledge then the narrow rib to a tough exit over the shelving capstone. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
To the right of the start of Nameless Chimney is a blank slabby wall. Climb the centre of this or the right arete (easier). Then the blocks above and finish over the interesting final (crux) bulge using a flake on the rounded top.

the start up to the ledge, had a quick look at the rest then walked off. Worth E1 for the start alone- the rest is miles harder than E1.

Had a few false starts on the lower slab. Just walked off after the start - it seemed a bit pointless to carry on as it was so easy to just escape.

Jumped/fell off into chimney when realised no gear at first break, used one of my nine lives! Met first ascensionist. A good V3 but not such a good choice of lead.

Never E1 in a million years. It's considerably harder than black chipper. Hard E2 6a if the rock was clean easily E3 in it's curent state. The mantel at the top is worth font 6b alone.

Found it in terrible condition - damp, sandy, lichenous - making progress extremely difficult! At least three separately hard cruxes, with dubious gear for two of them. Couldn't top out, had to escape off to the left.
