I climbed the corner but went left before the peg? The up past the fang traverse to the chock stone in the roof. Poor gear, 1 blue dragon in the hanging dagger and delicate position to place. In the end bridged up and committed to the layback on the the mini ledge. Wouldn't have wanted to fall. Climbing was ok but uninspiring gear made it less than great fun.

Amazing! The obvious line for the fang!

The ugly duckling of the buttress? It's a great little variation and we were amazed no one had thought to climb this until the 1990s. Go do it, it's great and it's the obvious line up the section.

Only about 6 or 7 m of independent climbing but that is sensational

Started up Extraction, went direct up the corner under the roof then bridged left before cutting loose onto the lip of the roof and finishing up the slab slightly left all as one long pitch. So I think this is the route closest to what we did. Didn't know where I was going - I was looking for The Plum...

Started up Extraction, went direct up the corner under the roof then bridged left and finished up slab. Rested on rope to retrieve gear (forgot a nutkey!)
