Rockfax Description
Good climbing up the slabs to the left of Grassy Gully.
1) 20m. Climb up the right-hand edge of the slab to a short wall. Go left to bypass it and climb to a huge tree and belay.
2) 14m. Move up the overlapping slab and then make a stretch left before continuing to a tree and belay on a terrace.
2a) 10m. An alternative pitch at Severe standard is to climb the corner on the right. This is known as the 'The Notch'.
3) 20m. Walk left 7m down the terrace and climb a slab to finish. © Rockfax

Took a zig zag route up the slab (i.e. The Notch Sev. variation) above the tree to get to the arette on the left hand side to climb up. Good fun.

May have done this previously this about 44 years ago ... the East Buttress is more vegetated than I remember. Today it was a dry, sunny afternoon and we had the crag to ourselves - where were all the freshers!:-)

Took a big lead fall on 2nd pitch, ended up slamming into sloping wet ledge, held by tiny gear.
