Climb the obvious flake crack, at the top step left (crux). Step right and finish up passing right of the tree.

Agree with the previous comment that the direct 5a route felt easier. Nice crimp to do it

Excellent! This buttress has some great lower grade climbing on it which was reasonably clean.

Awkward set left from the top of the flake but then the guidebook did warn me and I set off anyway.

Downclimbed from the ledge as it was a wee bit dirty for a lone soloer.

Messed up that step left. Very green & dirty.

Got too scared and retreated. Twice.

Even on a top rope I couldn't work out the 'normal' 4c version, which steps left. Ended up doing the direct 5a instead, which felt much easier!
