Rockfax Description
The best route on the right-hand side of the West Buttress tackles the clean red slab. Start by scrambling high up the Western Terrace to a point below the right edge of the slab, just before a large boulder.
1) 5b, 30m. Pull up, then traverse up leftwards to a flake at 15m. Move up over a bulge, then continue up leftwards along a flake to a small overhang. Pull round this on the left and belay in a shallow corner (peg).
2) 5b, 25m. Traverse left and head up to a tiny ledge, then move down and left to reach a grassy gully. Follow this to a stance.
3) 35m. The rib above leads to easier ground and the top. © Rockfax
