Lust Buttress is comprised of two boulders.The large downhill one with the routes and a smaller one directly behind [uphill].There is only one true line on the uphill block, a dogleg crack ending someway shy of the top.Has it been done before? It's not in the guide and a less than exhaustive search has turned up nothing.Anyway I bouldered it out on sunday arvo. It didn't 'feel' like a FA, if that makes sense, but if it was then it's now called 'ohmygodohmygodohmygod' and would be a testing 19 with a rope on.[good rock 3ish at your waist for the crux].6m.
I checked the latest version of the guide and it states that all routes are on the lower boulder, so I guess it is an FA.
