10m. From the foot of the crack, climb the buttress rightwards to a good rest and a finish up a crack and awkward bulge.

Find who Babbecombe Lee was in relation to the neighbouring routes.
Gary Gibson - 14/Mar/02

did they spell it wrong??

"John 'Babbacombe' Lee achieved notoriety on three counts: he was found guilty of the murder of his elderly employer in Babbacombe in 1884; he was sent for execution but three times the trap failed to operate; released from gaol after 23 years in custody, John Lee married, then abandoned his family and disappeared."

The line on the topo for this route is wrong, it shows the route moving off left along the break at the top of the steep crack, whereas it actually finishes over the nose direct.
