Rockfax Description
The second best route on Central Buttress has a superb crux section, which is hard, but short-lived. Climb up to a scoop, then move right and climb up to the bulge. Pull left to a thin crack, then back up right to an undercut (pegs). Make a hard move out left to gain a good hold at the base of a groove. Pull up and climb the groove, then move left to the lower-off. © Rockfax

Great route, with a hard and well protected rock. Good rock too.

Theo Moore - UKC and UKH 22/Jun Lead G/U

Tried this last year but went the wrong way. Excellent and hard crux section.

Gaining the undercuts not leaving them is the crux. Hard. Previously seconded 24th July 2014

Nasty for E4. Had to use a horrendously loose flake to do the crux. Has probably fallen off by now.
