<< Central Buttress Direct Alternative start
|110m, 3 pitches. Climb a shallow groove slanting slightly right, go over a chockstone, then move up into a big groove with an overhang at its top. Avoid this on the left and continue curving left up ramps until an easier angled groove leads right to the crest before the gendarmes.|

Three pretty good pitches. Crux was a bit awkward and I fell off on my first hurried attempt. Must stop doing that - to many spiky things about.
