30m. To the south (right) of the main West Face of Suspension Bridge Buttress is a much shorter buttress with much of its top section under black keep netting. There are three routes on the crag; this is the central one of the three.

A pleasant route that takes the wall right of the start of The Return of the Fencing Master, exiting as for that route. Starting at the short stepped rib just to the right of the two large rock anchors, climbing the wall above on the right using crystal pockets. At the ledge system step right and climb the clean wall (peg) enjoyably to a larger ledge. Gain the attractive groove 2m left and climb to the large bay, and move left (care needed with slippery netting underfoot) to join the final section of The Return of the Fencing Master. Traverse the ridge to a large tree and excellent stanchion.

Descent: Abseil of the tree (no strop fitted currently) or descend on foot via the keep netting and easy angled slabs to the south.
