4 pitches. 1) 5, 2) 5+, 3) 5+, 4) 5+. A fine, sustained four pitch outing up the left-hand side of the face, spoilt slightly by the mid-height ledge. On the easier sections the bolts are a bit spaced; a few nuts might not go amiss. Can be done up and down on a 70m rope, or walk off to the left. © ROCKFAX

I led pitches 1 (5a) and 3 (5b+). C led 2 (5b+) and 4 (5c). Very good route, let down slightly by the walk between pitches 3 and 4. The last pitch felt more like 5a/b to me, but it's harder for the short. I though pitch 3 was the toughest.

a nice 4 pitch route up the left hand side of the buttress with good views across the valley. The 1st 3 pitches are limestone slabs and the last climbs steeper ground to the left. Its a bit of a scrabble descent through bushes to find the short abseil.
