Rockfax Description
A strenuous but well-protected route that tackles the crack and corner-line up the middle of the buttress. Start below the corner at a belay reached via a short scramble.
1) 5a, 17m. Climb the corner to a belay on the left.
2) 5c, 20m. Take the steep cracks in the wall to gain the next corner - strenuous - and follow this to a grassy ledge.
3) 25m. Climb the chimney and cracks to easy ground and belay.
Scrambling remains to the top of the buttress. © Rockfax
