One of a trio of brilliant VSs on this buttress giving varied and sustained climbing throughout. Start at the base of a left-to-right slanting ramp that leads up into the huge corner.
1) 4a, 16m. Head up the ramp to the base of the corner and a belay at a block.
2) 4b, 26m. From the block, climb the corner to a ledge where a line of weakness is present on the slabby wall to the left - possible belay. Make a technical traverse across the weakness for 6m to gain a crack and finish up it. The huge corner can be climbed all the way - Ardus Direct Finish, VS 4c. © Rockfax
