Rockfax Description
The easiest route up the buttress. Climb the wall to enter the groove which is more awkward than it looks. Finish with a difficult move above the overlap. © Rockfax

flash today after trying when tired last week. Would say could easily get 6c given the polished footholds in places and the very committing long reach final move. not what you'd call an easy warm-up for this wall!
