Girdle traverses

There are two magnificent traverses of Two Tier Buttress with an incredible combination pitch linking them both. All three are incredible stamina problems:

Nervous Breakdown (7b+) ★★★
Begin by climbing Reward to gain the break and then follow this leftwards to a belay atop The Curse of the Mummy, 14BRs.

Communication Breakdown 7c+ ★★★
This time start by climbing Darl pitch 2 to the break and then follow this rightwards to the belay of The Curse of the Mummy, 15BRs.

Total Breakdown 7c+ ★★★
Combines the above two pitches by starting up Communication Breakdown and following this through the belay and reversing Nervous Breakdown to finish over the roof of Reward. Have you got enough clips? You’ll need at least 30!
