Kemple End – Hodder Buttress.

As it was dry today went up to Kemple End to do some bouldering and ended up on Hodder Buttress.

Hodder Buttress

Traversing the break is fun. Trying the start to the right hand side of the wall, but having difficulty leaving the break. This would give a start to a hard route up the wall right of Ribblesdale High.

Ribblesdale High is a route starting right of the arete, climbing past pockets to the break, then moves off a sloping ledge lead hopefully to the top. Given E3 6a. That reminded me that I had pictures of the first ascent by Simon Nevett.

Simon Nevett 1st ascent Ribblesdale High.

If you click onto the photo to enlarge, the sloping holds right of Simon would be the finish to my project – some hope.

PS.  3rd April 2017.

Probes has just crushed that problem at ?E3 6b  Gin Rib.

Good effort.
