Kelly's Eliminate** S 4b
10m. Excellent climbing up the centre of the buttress. The start is steep and strenuous, although on good holds. The upper section is delicate and poorly protected. © ROCKFAX

Felt harder than expected, probably indicating that I need to climb more!

This route felt very contrived and i didn't like it. I constantly felt like I was off route when i just seemed to be following the line that felt natural. I dont like climbig like that.

Found it difficult to differentiate between this and Spring Sunshine to the right - so ended up doing a mix of both i think. I also put runners out to October crack as pretty polished and delicate above halfway as no other gear placements (with what i had were possible to till the top.

gets easier as you go higher but also gets less well protected. you are probably better off just going for it rather than wasting time and energy looking for protection as there really isnt any. you can get a cam in about 3-4m up and thats about it.

nice climb but may as well solo as such poor gear. Topped out slightly to the right as had the FEAR making the last move.

Nice little climb, very reasonable if a bit run out up top. Very eliminate in nature, the natural line lands you at the top of the crack.

Spent a while contemplating this climb because by now the drizzle was getting quite heavy and everything was getting sogged. I am also not very prone to run out slabs and generally scare myself shitless on them. Decided it would be a character building climb though doing a precarious slab in wet weather. First moves were quite tough for 4b I thought never might 4a but I think I wandered abit too far right. Placed several small cams (0.5, 1, and 1.5 I think... shows how scared of slabs I am) to try and make a safety net, as I could see everything was getting very soaked now! Was in a strenous position, pulled up, a little too far to the right I think (maybe doing the VS?) then moved out left again to avoid myself retreating to safety of the crack on the right. Realised this was probably a bad idea as all the holds were wet. Spent my time slowly creeping up the crack, patting my chalk ball (bad practice, I'm sorry) to try and dry out the soaking holds, didn't really work but I worked my way up anyway. Final stretch was very scary for me reaching up for a dripping big ledge. Wacked in a piece of gear out of priciple on the left (ill fitting, probably would have fallen out in the event of a fall) and moved up over the top to the thank god lip of the top. Can't see how this is severe on UKC but I guess when its try it might be a different story! Dad followed and basicly thought the same as me, i.e. conclusion, a very wet HS indeed...

Poorly protected climb, although you can put the first gear just above reach level. Pretty steep - felt a bit shakey! A character-building climb :)
