Rockfax Description
Start as for Esmerelda, but trend right to the break and a rest on the right. Traverse strenuously back left along the lip then up to gain a stuck-on hold in a faint groove. Fight back right from this (moving low is a cop-out!) to follow the large flake to the belay. Phew! The easiest line up the buttress is Ouch, 7b+. Start as for Stung and follow it leftwards to finish up Esmerelda. © Rockfax

Weird third bolt to clip. Had a few goes then sacked it off then Jamie found a new hold which makes it seem much more amenable, great climbing.
