20m. Climb the prominent flake on the left side of Lower Buttress, then the crack above above with interest. Finish up the open corner. The bolt refered to by the FRCC Eskdale/Wasdale guide has long since disappeared but there are plenty of options for setting up a safe belay.

Fairly straightforward climbing, though the step off the pinnacle feels committing. Enough gear in the route, guidebook MVS feels fair. Possibly stepped a bit off route into a niche on the left near the top. Stepped back across before final mantle but probably skipped a move up. Nice climb, worth 2 stars IMO.

Only HS really, a slightly awkward but well protected move up over the wall then very basic all the way up the slab with good gear. Couldn't find the bolt belay so constructed some out of some old tat round a chockstone I found, a hex in a boulder that moved, and a decent cam placement.

To get there, go round the hill not over! VS rather than MVS as per guidebook. Very steep wall, still some awkward moves after angle eases.

A sneaky crux with unpleasant consequences if you stuff things up. HS 4b would probably be a better grade as the rest of the route is pretty easy.
