Broken Buttress


Adjacent Routes
<< Shallow Rib < Blocked Gully  |  Chipped Slab > Left-hand Tower >>

A 20m route on a 8m crag! Start at the boulders down the slope, climbing the right-hand pillar. Eventually the line crosses the path to the final slab which gives the crux, up the centre or the right edge.

I found the final slab easy, the crux was getting onto the overhanging block at about half height

The 1965 Froggatt guide has this route, and suggests that the majority of its Baslow routes were done by Byne and Moyer in 1933, following a tip-off from Puttrell.

I agree, the step up onto the block is harder than the slab, still only Diff though. Nice little slabby wall to play on afew yards right, by the way.
