Rockfax Description
A delightful climb on the far right of the buttress. Start in the corner.
1) 4a, 18m. Gain the ledge above and traverse left to just left of a conspicuous finger crack. Move up to a small ledge and then go right to the crack and climb it to a belay. The crack can be climbed direct at 5a.
2) 4c, 32m. Head up left to a corner and follow it all the way to the top, finishing on its right. © Rockfax
