Boo Boo Buttress

* Boo-Boo V.Diff 4c
A good varied route if guidebook description followed. Many people do a variation which starts much higher and left of the Boo-Boo normal start. This is Boo-Boo slabs and a good, well protected, two pitch diff can be climbed here which is popular with novice leaders.
* Starship Trooper E4 5c
Clean, but unpleasant approach
Tweek E4 6a
Abseil inspection (and approach) recommended

High up in the gully left of Boo Boo is a clean compact buttress. The following new route takes the clean(ed) left edge:
Tout Fou E2 5C
Pristine Tremadog rock and interesting moves with the crux at the top.
Step up right onto a block foothold. A good move leftward gains the edge. Move up past a small pointed spike . A bold move gains a small foothold on the right edge. Good gear in the crack on the right protect a final tricky move.

Bombon El Perro E1 5C 60ftOn the buttress immediately right of Tout Fou Start ; As for Tout Fou. Up the corner for 8ft, traverse right above the overhang to gain some footholds. Two RP’s ( one hidden round the arête ) protect a balancy move up the arête. Swing up left onto a block overhang where an easy arête leads up past a tree branch to finish. FA. 28.5.07 Mike Lewis, Judy Yates
Santa’s Little Helper E1 5b 20 m
Start below the arete of Bombon El Perro
Climb easily up a slabby corner to a large roof. Pull out left into a corner and then immediately pull back onto the nose above the overhang where there are some good runners. Continue to a steepening which is tricky and poorly protected. Easier ledges lea to the top.
