The large roof under the right-hand side of the buttress is taxing. Climb leftwards across the overhang to the lip then trend back right and pull onto slabby rock. Pre-placed wires to the left and right protected the first ascent though it has been done without. There is small gear in the roof if you can hang on to place it. . © Rockfax
