Coley Smoke*** n5
120m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A line up the cracks and grooves in the centre of the buttress. Start below and left of the prominent straight crack that splits three offset overhangs.
1) 4, 30m. A wandering pitch up the slabs, trending leftwards to a belay at the foot of the attractive open groove.
2) 5, 30m. Climb the groove to a stance on the left at its top.
3) 5-, 30m. Climb up and right, then leftwards to a short steep crack splitting the overlap. Continue up the cracks above then move right to a constricted belay in the chimney on the right, at the top of the prominent corner system.
4) 5-, 30m. Climb the chimney past the jammed boulder and follow the groove until the delightful finger-crack in the slab to the left can be reached. Belay well back on a good ledge by a block and tree. © ROCKFAX
