MFB 07/Jan Lead

lovely and warm in sun, Eddie (10) first trip onto this buttress, great day only marred by snagging and breaking my gear loop !!! resulting in the temporary loss of 3 cams, kindness of strangers, some of whom I'd tried to brain with the cams reunited me with the kit.

A nice route on good rock. The initial groove is much harder than anything else on the route, so look out for protecting your second with a high runner. For a more balanced route, consider starting up pitch 3 of Original Route.

First four metres of climb were pretty hard for the grade but quite simple after that. I split first pitch into two to be able to see Polly seconding. Descent via large split blocks slippery after drizzle. Would consider belaying down first bit of descent next time.

No guidebook, no idea where we were going other than a vague recollection of going off route once before. All very good fun. Did it in 2 pitches, I led the first.
