A classic from way back (the beginning of the 20th century). Climb the crack in the front of the buttress to a possible stance, then step out right and climb the thinner crack that leads to a groove and then the final arete. © Rockfax

AlanLittle 13 Aug 2nd The greasiest grease I have ever encountered; even the bit when it wasn't raining was utterly character building. Impressed with Colin's level of motivation.

buxtoncoffeelover 3 Aug Lead Led in one long pitch (30m to a reasonable belay just shy of the path). Enjoyable climbing & plenty of bilberries to refresh yourself en route!
