A link up of the routes Bludgers and Revelation. A classic.

1. 15m Starting at the base of slime wall climb to reach 2 prominent corner's.
2. 25m 5a Climb the left most corner that often seeps in its lower half to a ledge with peg belay
3. 25m 4c Step down and left, traversing round the corner and past a prominent detached spike. Continue upwards to a large sloping ledge.
4. 25m 4b Move right off the ledge round the corner to gain ramps. Move up these keeping a look out on the left higher ramp for block belay.
5. 30m 4c Continue up ramps towards Flake of Revelation. Climb this in an excellent exposed position, to a small ledge.
6. 20m 4a Follow the flake upwards and onto North Buttress

βeta: The Gary Latter guidebook description of this route is horrendous and leads to a dark place inside yourself.

βeta: Lots of tottering loose rock on north buttress, along top of slime wall above other routes. Take great care when scrambling off if anyone else is in the gully or on the cliff!
