Climb through a notch in the overhang then continue up the heathery front of the buttress to a ledge. Above this the climbing is steeper, harder and bolder. © Rockfax

βeta: Agree about the thought of landing on the ledge. Thought is to be possibly a 4b move to reach the finish. Easy but not unpleasant start finished with a good bit of exposed finishing.

βeta: Worth a star for the finish, especially if you go up near the arete

βeta: Awkward start (if you're short), rubbish middle bit, scary top (2 stars) protected by a friend that probably ought to hold. Are you supposed to go up the centre of the wall or the right near the arete?
