|Hawk's Nest Buttress||S 4b|
|55m. The original route of the buttress trends left to right to find the easiest line. Steady climbing although the crucial mantelshelf is a bit of a stopper. |
1) 10m. Trend right up slabby rock to a spike belay.
2) 4b, 10m. Move round right then climb the slot to a jammed block before making a hard mantelshelf out right. Belay in the recess just a little higher.
3) 14m. Climb easy rock then the chimney behind the tower of blocks and flakes to reach open ground and the top. © ROCKFAX
