Rockfax Description
34m. A great classic. It can be done in two pitches. From the toe of the buttress, trend up and right to the rib and climb this past awkward moves to reach the base of the wider upper crack system. Climb this - tricky at the overhang - and finish up a short wall at the back of the final ledge. © Rockfax

βeta: We split this into two pitches which makes for 2 contrasting pitches. The rock feels a bit detached in places but actually seems to be quite secure. The final chimney is more solid than it looks. Good route.

Beware of loose block about 20ft up, which is dangerous to pull on but ok to stand on. Top chimney was a bit of a thrutch wearing a rucksack with approach shoes in. Altogether much easier than Hadrian's Buttress!

odox 24 Jun, 2009 Lead O/S Another brilliant gem in Lough. Just keeps on giving. Climbed on the arête of the chimney rather than udging inside. Thin moves but nice all the same :)

Fabian001 13 Jul, 2008 2nd Flew up this one, but time was pressing so didn't quite finish it. I think I may need to loose a bit of weight around my arse to complete this one as there's an unpleasant tight chimney at the top

victim of mathematics 4 Jul, 2008 Lead O/S A great route that goes on and on. Unfortunately it has 2 distinct cruxes and the rest is considerably easier, but it's definitely a three star route all the same.

snowcat 26 Jul, 2006 2nd Ably led by Phil in the setting sun when it was nearly pub o'clock. He now says he is retiring from leading! The trick with this is to look for the crack at the back of the chimney - as found by Steve - cos otherwise flailing around on the outside or jamming yourself inside the chimney it ends up being more like HVS

Simon Caldwell ??, 1992 Lead O/S Year is approximate. All I can remember is (a) faffing for ages summoning up the courage to leave the spike, and (b) looking down from near the top to see every piece of gear I'd placed was sliding down the rope, and saying "oh w**k" :-)
