10m. Combine the the solid, clean rock of Flying Buttress Left Side with the lack of vegetation and birdlife and you have the best V Diff at Cummingston! With your back to Doubt Wall, start at the right hand end of the large ramp at the base of the main stack. Climb the left-facing corner of the buttress, enjoying great cam placements and a nice introduction to slopers. Once on top of the buttress, climb the steep wall (slotting another beautiful cam runner in on the way) to a choice of rocky belays.

Ticklists: Flying Buttress Ticklist.

Rainy day at Cummingston; thought it had cleared, but it started pouring just as we started this. Horrible and wet, but the point was to practice abseiling, which we did from the top of the stack.
