Really good start which is *just* about protectable - although nice soft landing on the grass. BUT couldn't fathom the top bit. The top section (after the soggy ledge) seems even less protectable, and would land on a nasty hard ledge. Top bit definitely not VS.

Very soggy, could do the last bit

Nice line- crux moves on lower wall are unprotected- would suggest HVS.

Good climbing but hard for the grade - felt 5a both at the bottom and the top! Also the top was bold for the leader.

Bit of a mucky and awkward route, don't think it deserves the stars.

Did a route up the arĂȘte of this buttress. It was called the Nell and it finished up the final crack of Screwy Driver.
