The front of the buttress is a deservedly popular climb, and one of the best routes at this grade in the area. Best saved for the end of the day, when the buttress glows orange in the setting sun.
Pitch grades are probably wrong in the guidebook - the first pitch has a tricky but well-protected move in the initial crack (probably 4a). Many people walk off after the first pitch, but the top pitch is the better one... It is, however, at least 4b, with not much gear, and could almost warrant VS? Certainly no push-over at HS!

Brilliant climb on a nice easy semi rest day. Has an alpine like feel to it.

Felt quite easy for hs but I managed to find enough gear in the groove on the 2nd pitch

First pitch was nice. Second pitch has a really nice line but very little in the way of gear till about half way. My ropes were snagged under a edge so I flicked them over. Which also flicked out all my runners! Hilarious and terrifying!

Led first pitch, then walked off, as we found lots of Yorkshire-men in our way!

guide said 4 star... but cant remember it being anything special.

Start of the second pitch is really fun. The start is variable depending on your exact starting position.
