Rockfax Description
A wandering line that wends its way up the left flank of the buttress. The climb is well travelled but best tackled in dry conditions. Start at the base of the buttress that is reached by a path starting 20m back down the approach path from the gearing-up ledge, just to the right of a broken wire fence.
1) 24m. Head up clean rock to an overhang and pass it on the left to gain a ledge. Move left past a tiny tree then follow a grooved rib to a ledge and belay (just left of a prominent tree).
2) 24m. Move left and climb a scoop to gain and finish up slabs. © Rockfax

βeta: Agree with Fatrobs comment does not dry as quickly as you are led to believe. Not recommended unless climbing well below your grade. VDiff is the top of my leading ability at the moment. After a couple of slips due to wet rock on the 1st pitch, the start of the second pitch was also wet in crucial places. Ended up abbing off
