Climb the arete and face to a crack that leads to a ledge and belay.2) 11m. Move up a grassy groove rightwards to a small shallow cave and belay.3) 20m. Move up rightwards under overhangs then make a short traverse to a chimney. Climb up over a large chockstone to a stance and belay.4) 15m. Traverse right, past an exposed ledge, until below a corner (this is a few metres before a grass ledge).5) 24m. Follow the long corner to easier ground and belays. Scrambling remains to gain the top of the buttress. © Rockfax
