Rockfax Description
A fine climb following an absorbing line up the buttress which has been incorrectly described in previous books. Climb the short corner, then pull left onto a slab. Go easily up the ramp leftwards and then up past two bolts to the scoop with an old peg. Traverse back right - take care with rope drag - before finishing up a well-positioned groove. Belays are difficult to find and there is some loose rock at the top. © Rockfax

βeta: The 3* HVS follows the ramp leftwards to the groove left of Sin City, then up the groove for a couple of moves before traversing back right past the round scoop containing the old peg, then round and up the cracked corner to a belay just below the top.

βeta: For the crag-top belay, it is possible to find some wires and a sling over to the right (looking in) effectively on the crag edge where it bends round. It is slightly to the side but good enough.

βeta: Very nice. Enjoyed it a lot. The belay at the top is V poor.. an old stake a long way off and NOTHING else. Be warned.
