Looked at groove on the right & didn't fancy it!! Finished up the left arete/wall. Perhaps more Giveaway Buttress than Keep Buttress

Ended up on the left arete of the top block instead of going right. The middle section is good altho tougher than it looks. Technical climbing and good protection all the way.
