Rockfax Description
Engrossing and varied climbing up the right-hand side of the buttress. The initial slab is often damp and needs a little afternoon sun on it to dry it out. Start in the deep shady corner on the right side of the buttress.
1) 5b, 13m. Move up and traverse up leftwards across the slabby wall with spaced protection to a small ledge below a left-facing corner that rises to the stepped overhang. Make some difficult moves up the corner and pull over the overhang then continue to a stance just beneath the next overhang.
2) 5a, 20m. Climb the wall on the left to another overlap and traverse a crack steeply left until it is possible to pull up through yet another small overlap onto the wall. Climb the wall via the most obvious crack to a good ledge.
3) 20m. Climb easily up and left to the summit of the buttress. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The direct start (slightly harder) goes up a thin crack which takes a couple of small wires.

Well Tom did the first pitch and with the slightly harder direct start too.

I did the second pitch but I doubt there was a 5a on it so maybe I went the wrong way?

Kirill 19/Apr/14 Lead O/S

With the regular start. Managed to get 2 pieces of gear to protect the step across: a wire of dubious worth and a poorly placed zero friend. Later on spent a while stood under the crux scratching my head until it dawned on me that I eliminated the best available handhold by placing a cam in it. Took the cam out and went for it. Great sequence, committing, but flows very well. The second pitch is just pure pleasure. A bit like the top of Assagai but better, because it's longer, it's on granite, and with much better views. Brilliant climb on a great sunny day.
