Rockfax Description
120m. The big deep cleft between A Buttress and B Buttress. The chockstone can be desperate and a biuld up of snow is preferable. A higher chockstone is easier. Finish with a tricky exit right on slabs. © Rockfax

Start well banked out so overcoming the first chockstone was relatively straightforward, but the next pitch involved a desperate thrutch around the back of the higher chockstone. Above this it is possible to move together on easy ground in impressive surroundings until the steepening before the exit, which is made directly by an interesting icy groove or to the right, as described, onto the crest of B Buttress.
