20m. Climb cracks and a large flake at the right side of the larger west facing buttress below the Alpine Ridge. Above the flake the route appears to consist of a stack of loose blocks.

Was going to attempt as a solo but left the ropes in place from the lead in case I changed my mind. Started hailing half way up so decided maybe it was time to tie in.

Easy start, nice middle section (slabby crux) but crappy last third made up of blocks only held together by dirt, gravity and sheer luck. Belayed below the large, gravity defying block and found a couple of small cracks further back on the ridge to give a 3 point anchor. Glad Julie didn't fall!

Nice climbing, pity it's so loose. Watch out for the top - if you aren't careful, you'll fall down the other side. There isn't a good way down either, as you have to scramble down the Alpine Ridge or risk getting nettled to death on the way to an abseil point!
