Grade 1/2. Climbs the gully to the right of the buttress. Overcome a high shelf (pile of stones at its base makes it easier) and go into the damp gully. Climb it on the left side; easy but quite sustained, to emerge at the top of the buttress.

Misha 31 Jul Lead rpt Short roping practice on a wet day. I guided the descent down what was a mini waterfall in places. Stacked ab off the top on a 50m rope gets to the in situ tat a few metres above the ledge. As it’s not steep, good idea to get the clients to ab down in stages. The ‘stance’ at the in situ tat is really awkward for three people (worth putting in longer tat or instead going to a spike about 10m below the top as that has a ledge next to it - have to abseil diagonally to get to it though. Off the in situ tat a 25m abseil just gets to a ledge at the bottom of all the difficulties. Have to direct the abseil L (looking in) to avoid the risk of a swing and get the shortest line. Bring the clients down in stages, ledge to ledge. Or short abseil off the tat (or longer abseil off the spike) to the ledge below the gully and then lower (rope protected downclimb) off a spike just above the ledge. Or just short rope from the ledge if dry. Had done before a couple of times.

wjcdean 24 May Solo O/S In the evening after driving up from Bristol. Followed by pinnacle rib scramble and bristly ridge. Wish I hadn't scoffed that McDonald's on the drive, nearly saw it again on the approach. Good little scramble and nice and dry. Ungraceful leap and belly flop to surmount the block at the start
