Rockfax Description
Usually started from the mid-height ledge. This is reached from the right (looking in). Climb the right arete of the buttress via a thin crack to a baffling move on a hidden pocket which gives access the front face. Keep right to finish. Starting up a crack below the upper arete is also possible. © Rockfax

spent ages going the wrong way when it's actually much easier to go direct to the break.

Got sandbagged by a shit description in the bmc guide telling us to go left to a hidden pocket that doesn't exist. Cracking route.

A bad rest can be had if you have shorter legs! Not very well protected, would be a bad fall.
