UKC Logbook Description
Line of bolt to left of 'Old Buffer' (and quite near Opus!)Steep start direct to ledge, powerfull moves lead directly through the bulge, to a second ledge. Now take wall right of the arete direct. Don't bridge left as this will mean your on the trad route up the crack stay on face all the way.

Pulled off a big hold, got flustered, went wrong way, fell off :( All fine from there on! Did it to retrieve qd's for someone else left in Old Buffer. Has a chossy section and could do with a clean but enjoyable.

Good route. Bit loose near the start and below the bulge, but some nice moves.
