Nesscliffe - Sunset Buttress

About
On the higher side and with some suspect rock, Sunset buttress might be best used as a place for watching the sunset after a good day out. For those wishing to actually climb here, there are good trees for top rope anchors.
Directions
From the parking enter the woods and turn right on the main path. Follow the main path to just beyond where the forest meets a field , walk up the open beech tree valley. Sunset Buttress is at the top of an old fence on the left just below the view point lookout.

1Rubbish 14 Up the horizontal breaks just left of Sunray, moving left at the top to a good finishing hold.
2Sunray5The left hand crack of the buttress has a small overhung corner niche near the top. Climb direct into the corner a long reach above to the top or slightly easier pull onto the bulging wall on the right.
3Brownie4The central crack overhangs to start is easier than it looks but the rock is fairly dubious, pull over to gain a niche ledge and corner just below a flat finish.
4Boulevard5The best line at Sunset on good steep rock. From a down pointing horn at the horizontal break climb the bulging wall direct to a short vertical crack at the top or pull left to a crack then back right to finish at the same place.
5Horn Of Plenty4A deep dusty crack is climbed pulling left to a short column and good holds but arounded finish.
6Rubbish As Well4Pull over the bulge onto the green slab and climb up around the right side of the bugles to a dirty finish.
