Crawl Buttress

An impressive buttress standing out from the rest of the cliff. Crossing relies on a little care but is relatively straightforward.

Shallow groove, overhang and corner right of Latest Craze.

1. Latest Craze (7b+) ★★
Barn-door arête with technical moves.

2. Good Jab’ (7a+)
Technical moves right under the roof to exposed finish.

3. Lounge Lizard Leisure Suit (6c+)
Varied climbing centred on the main feature of the front face.

4. Just Too Hot (7b) ★★
Superb open face climbing, fingery and technical - bolt belay on the ledge below.

5. Time Was Once on my Side (7c)
Front face of buttress with desperate and height-dependant finale.

6. Too Hot to Touch (7b) ★★★
Best route on the Escarpment based around the left arête.

7. B’stard (7a+)
Tries to climb the right wall of the corner. Easier if holds used in groove to left (6c+)

8. The Forest (7b)
Right-hand line through the desperate roof stack.

9. Really Big Sur (7c) ★★
Central and hardest line. Desperate.

10. Frisco Disco (7a+)
Easier left-hand line but still packs a punch.

The shallow groove above the doctored tree

Technical start with trickier moves above.

13. Breast Stroke in a D Cup (7a+)
Desperate struggle around right end of roof.

14. The Gnarliest (7b+)
Even harder round the centre of the roof. Aptly named.

15. Snaffel Attack (7b)
The narrows but the holds run out. Thin fingers an asset.

16 Damn Snaffelhounds E4 6a
Bolder and harder than it looks via vague crack system.

The dynamic left arête of Crawl Wall.

Dear Prudence (6b)
Short wall and blunbt arête with two big pulls.

Pleasant little arête on left (not on topo)
