UKC

Slightly discontinuous climbing, searching out the best rock between Gabbro and Rough Stuff. Start 7 metres left of Rough Stuff at some blocks.

1 18m. Pull up the steep wall and follow the exposed rib, eventually joining Gabbro for a few metres. Belay below the fine-looking buttress above.

2 20m (4a). Climb the front of the buttress on wonderful rock for 5 metres before migrating over to the slab on the right. Friction up this to easier ground and the top.

First ascent: (07/06/2005) BJ Clarke (solo)

βeta: Description here differs from guide book which shows route climbing corner as for Gabbro and swinging right onto front of Buttress. Better to step right from belay and straight up rib and slab above.
