Quality climb but gear a bit sparse.
ChrisGreen - Lead O/S - 25/Jun/13 with Ann S

Perfect little route and much better protected than I remembered. Recommend getting to the start by abseiling from one of the birch trees half way down the buttress.

A good little route. I stuck to the arete throughout, which is only slightly harder, but would be quite bold to lead (HS 4a?)
