[Lovely rough Welsh grit, 2 kb]The best route on Rhino's Buttress, high in the grade but with a well-protected crux. Probably worthy of 3 stars rather than 2.

Tricky start then nice moves up the slab to the roof. Arranged loads of gear inc a sling and 3 cams and a wire before swinging out right and up the crack. Looked harder than it was. Big exposure for such a small crag!
