[Never discount anything on Verandah Buttress, 4 kb]14m. The Verandah is gained at its bottom right-hand corner, usually by a torrid struggle. The loss of a block many years ago helps explain the difficulties and combined tactics are frowned upon! From the scoop traverse left to finish up the exposed arete of the buttress. The climbing is about 4a after the start. © ROCKFAX
