Rockfax Description
This follows the big expanding groove.
1) 4b, 20m. Climb up to the slit and pull through into the groove. Trend leftwards to skirt the steep section and gain the upper slab. This leads to the break.
2) 20m. Take the easiest line out. © Rockfax

Mark_RMC 21 Jun, 2009 Lead Blockhouse buttress is an intimidating looking crag, so I started on this route to get settled. The route is much easier than it looks up a keyhole shaped chimney and then onto a slab. Sadly we had to leave early so there wasn't time to do anything more. Hopefully next time I will be braver.
