[Emma Alsford on the FA of the 2nd pitch of Eros, E2, Greek Buttress, 3 kb]200m, 5 pitches. A companion route to Aphrodite, climbing between the main corner lines of La Linea D'Ombra and Gamma. Climb the corner just right of Aphrodite (and left of Gamma) to the large ledge. The route now climbs left of Aphrodite...Gain the wall above, moving right under the obvious bulge, to pull up and continue slightly leftwards. Gain a small ledge in the middle of the wall (just left of Aphrodite) and climb straight up steeply to gain the leftwards slanting crack, going up steeply to gain a small ledge on the left where the angle eases. Continue up the rib to gain a leftwards slanting chimney 'slot' above, awkwardly fighting up this to gain a ledge above. Move left around a rib and up a crack to gain a huge corner on the left. Climb steeply up this initially, to a continuation corner above and on the left. Bridge up this to finish over a bulge/steepening. Scrambling remains.

Led all pitches. Great climb, well worth the 3 stars. Stepping into the hanging chimney slot was particularly memorable.
