14m. A good route with a bold start. Use a loose flake to reach the break above the lip where Friends protect the move to the ledge on the arete. Climb up to jams under the bulge then follow the upper arete in a fine position.
This is a fantastic route, I think better and more satisfying than the Buttress line. Great beefy start and excellent balancy/scary finish.
A brill sequence of really varied moves. As Mr. Turkey says above, 'satisfying'.
Splendid. Surely better than Count's Buttress in line, position, and moves? Quite mild, the flake is of little consequence, the gear is good, and rests are plentiful. Fine climbing all the way.
Nice comments, guys. Thanks. It's be a while, though - I don't remember the route. I was young and foolish (and Friendless) then.
Now that I think about it, I vaguely remember dropping off it from about 10-15 ft and bruising my heel on a rock at the base. I went right back on it, but couldn't walk for a week afterwards.
Looks from the votes and comments that this doesn't start with a V5 boulder problem then, direct up to the loose flake? Makes it rather hard, as there's no rest between that and the sequence through the roof. Brilliant route though - although I think the best way up here would probably be the start of Count's Buttress and the finish of this one.
