Carn Brea (minor addition)

In between the showers I scraped across some very slopey slopers to complete "Gordon Brown" on the Snoopy boulder. Grade wise probably around the V5 mark, although it felt harder!

It starts on the right arete, reach across to the crimp and then onto the slopers, finishing in the crack.

Of course this line may have been climbed before. Variations exist and a harder finish would be to avoid the left hand side of the crack.

To report Bob Lambourne repeated this on the 20/12/06, no change to grade and he enjoyed it.

This is a good problem, I did it on Friday after a bit of work. I reckon it’s very similar to ‘Swept Away’ so a worthy addition. C. H. tells me he flashed it and a chap called Dom from Tiverton has done it as well so I make that five ascents in a couple of months. A very popular problem!
