|Chantry Buttress||S 3c|
|30m. Climbs the obvious projecting buttress about 20m right (east) of Napes Needle. Start from grassy ledge at foot of buttress. Climb easily to optional stance/belay below a steep crack (Chantry Butress Direct, HVS) and climb the slab on the right which soon leads to a steep and quite difficult crack, from the top of which a precarious traverse left leads to a niche on the arete (top of the crack of the Direct). Climb the groove out of the niche (some doubtful rock and minimal gear) and exit right (very exposed and bold). If not continuing up another route, take some tat for an abseil descent (unless you relish steep exposed grassy slopes with rocks below them!)|
