Really good climbing. The holds are indeed surprisingly good... Once you find them! Bold to finish.

Good warm up. Felt HVS 5a today, but maybe we didn't climb it direct enough?

Led on Ben's gear to save time in between showers. A decent little bouldery route. Easier than it looks from below.

this could be a 5c move with groundfall potential if you're particularly short. easy 5b for the rest of us.

On Andy's gear so avoided the placement pump, which was nice. 2 stars I reckon and as good as Great Buttress Arete.

My fave climb to date. The only protection I could find was a threaded sling half way. The last couple of moves were tres scary all that way above my protection. Absolutely love this route. Fingery and steep for E1. My fave type of climbing
