Direct finish, after the direct start to Rib Wall, a useful link-up that creates a more direct (unsurprisingly!) line up the buttress, with an enjoyably boldish feel.

Gets VS in BMC guide, definately deserves to be as well, gear not as sparse as you think you just have to be creative

Hmmm this is one shite route... probably the most unispiring climb the Roaches has to offer!

Rather underwhelming route, decidedly unsparkly!
