An eliminate but with good moves. From a spike pull over the roof and head straight up the rib between Brown Windsor and Great Buttress Eliminate. Climb up a scoop then hand traverse 3m to the right and pull over the right edge of the capping roof. © Rockfax

βeta: This felt much harder than the grade of E1 5b - but maybe attempting it at the end of the day didnt help. Strenuous committing traverse to even harder moves above with gear getting ever more distant. My attempt saw a frantic retreat back to the scoop/niche and an escape out left into Brown Windsor. Any other views on this route ?

Reaver2k 24 May, 2009 2nd O/S Pretty sure we went slightly wrong with this. The start is awkward but a swift heel-hook sorts it out. Then pretty easy climbing leads up to just below the roof, then Mike ran it out massively swinging with his hands on the ledge and limited feet after getting stuck on the ledge above, I can't help but think you were probably meant to shuffle along the ledge. We both swung right all the way to Great Buttress - extremely pumped - and finished off the last awkward moves of that, must have been a scary lead!
