Rockfax Description
Not the beast you might expect. Swing over the roof to access the left-hand side of the slab and climb it more easily to the break. Continue up the left-hand side of the buttress above keeping just right of the arete. © Rockfax

lichenous and bold

super gritty on the slab with definite deck out potential if a foot slips... would agree with rockfax's hvs at least unless it gets some traffic!

Tricky bouldery start and no gear until about two thirds of the way up. Following the route in the book straight up the top buttress this is much harder than 4c! 5a in the guide and I agree.
