A fine direct line up the buttress. Move up out of the alcove with difficulty and continue without much respite to join Back in Black at its good hold. Finish up Back in Black.

The first few metres are height dependent so 7c+ -8a I think. Good and quite pumpy

snapped a hold of this making it a bit harder. I really should leave dinbren alone before i destroy every route! Probably solid 8a now

I climbed a new (?) link last night.
"Elite Deviation" climbs Elite Syncopations but instead of joining and finishing up the 7b leftwards, breaks rightwards and takes in the more difficult crux of Bolt from the Blue, protected by wires. Super nice, fingery and powerful! Unfortunately little by way of new climbing but a better way to climb Bolt from the Blue. 8a

Cool route, bottom end 8a I thought.
