In the Knoe** VI 6
85m, 3 pitches. This climbs the fault-line dividing the two right-hand sections of the buttress, starting 40m left of Noe Gully. The route requires some build up of ice.
1. 30m The fault-line starts up an overhanging left-facing corner. Climb the steep right wall of the corner via a turfy crack and continue straight up to belay on a good ledge below and to the right of the continuation chimney.
2. 40m Step left 2m, surmount a short wall and slab to enter the chimney. Climb the chimney to an impasse, make hard moves to exit out right and continue up the steep groove/left-facing corner to below a deep, wide crack/corner (visible from the ground). Spectacular bridging leads to a good belay.
3. 15m Easy ground leads to the top.

This climb is in 2 logbooks, and on no wishlists.

Ice essential for enjoyment on P2. No ice meant dicey poorly protected thin moves at VII,6 hard-ish 6. Would be made much less insecure with thin ice for feet.
