Puffrisset*** n6
110m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
110m. (The Puff Crack) The right-hand crack is excellent. Where the crack runs out, the route continues up the protectionless slabs above. It can be gritty early in the season. Start as for the previous route in a vegetated bay below and left of the cracks (which can't be seen from below) with a flake-crack on its right-hand side.
1) 5, 30m. Climb up left then right on grass ledges to the flake, then move right and continue up more flakes and cracks to a small stance at the foot of the main crack.
2) 5+, 30m. Continue up the finger-jamming crack that splits the clean white slab to a ramp at the top of the crack and a small stance. A superb, sustained and well-protected pitch.
3) 6, 30m. Traverse right, across ledges, and up a flake to below a slab. Climb up then move right to gain a spike runner (last gear). Move back left and trend left to the top of the brown streak and a dirty finish.
4) 5-, 20m. Climb a short ramp then move out left to access the final crack and climb this, which eventually becomes vegetated at the top. © ROCKFAX

With Helen. 3rd pitch is ok if you go straight up from the flake runner, about 2 metres left of right hand arÍte. E1/2 5a/5b. Small cams in flake protect upper crux. No one seems to climb left from the flake as the guidebook suggests - mossy!

first pitch only. then rained off.

Ferdia lead the 1st pitch. Getting to the belay of P1 on second it began to rain. I climbed faster but we had to retreat due to rain. Got quite wet and left loads of gear. That afternoon we retrieved the gear by abseiling from the top of the crag on two 60m ropes tied together. A fun exercise in the rain which was faffy but epic free...!

Led p1 & p3. P3 was a bit of a shock to the system - bold, smeary and dirty - glad to see it's had an upgrade to n6 in the update.

I lead p1 and 3, The line of P3 is very unclear....I started up the rampline which is bold in the extreme. I reversed this after a few metres as I could see a flake further right so I climbed up to this placed a well dodgy nut and went straight up from there a few meters right of the arete. There is another poor runner just below the dirty top (small cam under a flared flake). I also belayed from here as you would have a knighmare with the rope if you walked along the legde as directed in the guide
