Rockfax Description
A mini classic. Move up Candle Crack and step right at a small overhang. Use a flake to pull over the small overhang to reach a ledge and then climb the front of the buttress to finish. A direct start up the lower face of the buttress to the overlap is 5c. © Rockfax

A committing but well protected step across. Nice moves, and not really /that/ hard.

Didn't pay attention to route description and tried to go over bulge direct. I failed little fall then rest and climbed the actual route no bother.

Brilliant - placed gear at start of traverse and went for it. Didn't stop until stood up on the ledge. Don't hang around placing gear on the flake or you will get pumped. 1st trad for a long time. And a route i'd wanted to go back for . Brilliant!
