A superb route ,giving incredible climbing directly up the steep buttress right of Athanor. The climb was based on an old semi aided route The Great Buttress climbed in 1965 by Adrian Liddell and Paul Ross. Quote from the Ross/Thompson 1966 guide book to Borrowdale :-" The man who transforms The Great Buttress from an aid route to a free route is sure of his niche in climbing history"...and so it was.Start as for Athanor. P1) Climb the rib on the left to a belay below the blank looking groove ....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
