150m, 3 pitches. An excellent route taking the crest of the prominent buttress defining the right
edge of The Art of Growing Old Gracefully.
1. 50m Start just right of the gully and climb the corner-ramp cutting through the
left side of the lower wall. Above, continue right via a steep chimney and climb
two steep walls to a terrace.
2. 40m Climb the centre of the short impending headwall above and continue
through the chimney splitting the giant boulder above. Belay on the prominent
terrace.
3. 50m Ascend the headwall by climbing first right, then left up a steep turfy
wall to reach an easier gully leading to the top.

Turf beginning to thaw but still good in the main, a refreeze of the damp snow would put the route in really nice condition.

Good route with some good moves throughout. Bomber turf and hooks. That boulder cave on the second pitch is fantastic. Second route of the day finished in the dark.

Climbing as a three, with plenty of snow on the route. A surprisingly good climb and certainly worth stars. Turff frozen, but some digging required by Ewan to find the Gear and placements. Lost a big cam on top pitch.

Turf just about frozen enough for this to be in. Direct start not so. Was good fun but fairly broken and always escapable so it is really an eliminate. But saw no one all day and for that it's got to be worth it.
