Rockfax Description
Climb the right-hand crack to its top, then a thinner one before stepping right onto the blunt arete (hand-placed blade-peg). Finish over the scary-looking capping block. An indirect start up the face to the left is Walrus Buttress which is a bit harder. © Rockfax

Got scared when I couldn't find gear and jumped for the role roz had down the Crack. Grabbed that and then down that and jump off. Not a very good showing. Head was not in it!

Done in combination with Walrus Butter. Used a crimp on the right of the blunt arete near the top. Feels like the obvious way. To stay left as it says in the guidebook would feel like a bouldery pebble pulling eliminate.

There is no peg. Good technical climbing. Climbed in damp conditions with drizzle.

Got hands awkward under overlap, and couldn't change round, tricky higher up.
