Neb Buttress*** HVS 5a
[Gaz thinkin about Neb Buttress, 3 kb]20m.

Rockfax Description
Classy - the original and best! Climb the crack to its top then traverse left past the arete, where a crack and short wall lead to an escape out right. Double ropes and some attention to their organisation is a sensible idea. © ROCKFAX

Lead with a rest near the top. We were using a single rope, so rope drag was a pain
malina - Lead - 27/Jun/15

Nice face climbing at start. A rest in a cave round the corner and then the pumpy fun begins on the steeper wall. Hardest but was trying to 'rest' in the final break before committing to the final moves. Bad rope drag from the top! Pleased to finish an HVS with a pumpy symbol!

Use 2 ropes to avoid ropes shearing on 2nd in falls. Sustained in places. My 2nd pinched a hold in last horizontal break and it snapped! Also LARGE block on the traverse will eventually come out, you can avoid using.

Bit of a fight. Had to lay siege and down climb to the knee bar a couple of times! Ange took a nasty swing and nearly cut through the rope. BE CAREFUL WHEN SECONDING!
Jackwd - Lead O/S - 19/Apr/14 with Charley Fell, Kev Titheradge, Angela Paul

Did the direct start. Nice lead by Jack. Found it quite pumpy...
charley - 2nd O/S - 19/Apr/14 with JackD, Ange, Kev

Did the direct start which is lovely and quite balancy, took the hands off rest at the break was amazed at how good the diagonal bulge was when I got to it but didn't have my feet right and by the time I'd adjusted my hands/arms had used up their reserves and I took a MASSIVE swing. Wrecked the sheath of the rope as it rubbed on the edge. Jack lowered me down pretty quick :-) So take care when belaying, get good and close to the edge as if you don't have gear in the very top break your second is in for a big swing and might not be as lucky as I was. Fantastic route though and I'm looking forward to going back to it later in the season when I've built up a bit of strength and stamina.

Amazing route. Glad to have seconded this clean as it looked tough and I expected to need a rest. Found the knee bar and hands off rest 3/4 of the way up that helped. Solid jams before the top out helped for another rest to.

Only led the second part, felt very sustained, had to rest before I could do the (admittedly easy) last move.

Howling wind and rain. Ok up until I ran out of cams, the rope jammed solid just below the wet topout and the wild sketching started. Felt very hard and frightening in the circumstances. Cool route none the less.

I have finally vanquished my nemesis! I continually and gradually lost strength after moving up from from the block on the arete. By the time I reached the jug thread at the end of the rightwards traverse my arms were jelly and I could hardly hold on. Immense relief to pull over. Superb route - 4 stars!

Hidden - 2nd dog - 20/Jun/09

Despite positive holds and good gear, it felt like a battle once reaching the arete! Great knee-bar around the arete for a good rest before tackling the top section..

Initial crack better than it looks, decent rest on arete and nauseatingly steep and pumpy on the overhanging face. Wow!
Dave Foster - Lead O/S - Sep/08 with Carl

Superb route. The steepness of the final wall is a bit of a shock once you pull round onto it. Was plenty pumped at the top, but thankfully the traverse right is not too bad once started. If you are confident, flick gear out from first crack, and place bomber sling around the chock to remove possibility of rope drag.
