Wanted to do The Lich, but there was a party on it so decided for this instead. Surprisingly good choice it was - really nice 5b crux about 1 meter above a cluster of bomber gear and some almost reasonably protected 4c/5a climbing towards the top of the slab. On pretty cool rock structure. Less serious than Central Buttress I thought and should be done more often.

Extremely thin crux - required a very precise sequence to get over it. Only one reasonable bit of gear after this until the finishing break. A memorable way to join the E-club.

First E1. Found the crux to be well protected with 2 nuts, a cam and the rusty peg! Going straight up the center of the slabs above felt very adventurous, big run outs of about 6m and still reasonable hard thin climbing.

One balancy worrying move and the gear's okay, just at your feet.

Added an alternative top, go up the blank slab between the correct line and the vdif - very committing, no gear, run out, smooth and a babies bum! probably E2/E3 5c
