Rockfax Description
A awkward groove in the right-hand wall of Central Buttress which is tricky to start and (a bit) easier above. A direct finish up the wall and crack above the final ledge is VS 5a. © Rockfax

SuperstarDJ 6 Jun, 2006 Lead β First piece of gear left in from Jamie's attempt but pulled rope through for 'cleaner' ascent. Tricky start, but left less skin behind than last week's effort. I may have gone 'off route' onto blind man's buttress at one point. Not as straightforward a route as it looked, the gear's generally by your feet for the more difficult moves, rather than higher (this makes it more scary for crap climbers!). Horrible belly flop/wriggle with stuck knee at the top crack/slab. Very inelegant!

mungo 6 Jun, 2006 2nd β A tough route,espcially in the dark.. Quite balancy on the main slab and the sencond crux move over the sencond bulge was a nightmare belly flop leg jam type of move .... Good lead for David.
