form the right edge of the buttress. Go up a groove and pass a bulgy compact wall on the right and edge of the buttress. (pockets and tricam useful to protect). continue up via easier steps to an awkward hanging groove until you reach juggy but steep ground. Arrange gear in the break, breath and launch up...using this really rattly hold (but not going anywhere fast!) and further poistive holds until you get established in to the flake crack (about 2m up it to the top). One for the confident E1 leader as there are run outs and loose flakes in certain places. Still an excellent climb that I easily rate 3*!
