Rockfax Description
The wide chimney crack in the nose of the buttress leads past a bulge to a gritty ledge (possible stance). Step left into the jamming crack in the exposed arete and climb this until the crack on the right can be reached. Continue up this then finish up the wall on the left. An excellent route at the grade. © Rockfax
