Rockfax Description
A great route with a bold start. Use a loose flake to reach the break above the lip where cams protect the move to the ledge on the arete. Climb up to jams under the bulge then follow the upper arete in a fine position. © Rockfax

Fell off making the pull over the roof the first time and gave my knee a good whack. Every bit of the route was hard but really good

Started up this to 2/3 height, but finished up Count's Buttress as the upper crux was taking a while to work out and I was being blasted by a freezing wind.

Brilliant moves, what a route!! In reality worth 3 stars if it wasn't for its sister route Counts Buttress. As per Fiend's comments in my favorite five... "Count's Buttress may have the status, but The Count knocks it out with a direct line and superb position. The combination of an exciting roof and elegant balance climbing is hard to beat too." One of the best new routes I've climbed on Stanage in a while :)
