Mystery corner crack left of Defender Faith

2:11:46 PM
A few days ago I did the awesome Defender of the Faith Alternative left finish (20).It's a great single 50m
pitch which you rap into then climb out of. About 8m left of this face route is a landmark right facing
corner which is clean and about handcrack size. The top of Defender Alt Finish traverses left into this
corner fo the last 15m or so. I rapped in and also climbed this 50m long corner and found it very very
good. Great rock quality, mega exposure and awesome solid trad gear. I couldn't find any mention of this
pitch in the current 1996 guidebook. Does anyone know what it is?

Sounds like the route that John Schwerdfegger (is that how you spell his name?) put up... Bannister's Rush (21)? It'll be in the new Buffalo guide.

Simey is correct - it is bannister's rush 21. It has a bolt way down low before you get into the corner. It's a 55m pitch which starts maybe 15m below the corner, just above a small roof/overlap, on a small footledge.

I'll second Defender variant finish being a great pitch, very under rated IMO. Photos here - Banister's Rush is 5m past the climber in the final two shots.
