Rockfax Description
The curving fissure that bounds the left side of the buttress is novel. The start is awkward but the wide leaning section provides the crux (not much gear) and is best tackled on your back! Reckoned to be harder than Billiard Buttress by some! © Rockfax

βeta: Puzzling, but the absurd crawling bit is a giggle, as the earlier comment says.

βeta: ying dow nis definitely not the way to do it IMO, I nearly fell out seconding it! Would have been much easier just to stand up and walk up the slab, but I wanted to practice some "treaditional" techniques - notably humping the rock and grunting and laughing and slipping downwards all at once. Never vdiff, as James Mcn says, bold for the first 5-6 metres.

βeta: A must do route if you like that sort of thing (and most people don't!) Only given VDiff in previous guides - I wouldn't have solo'd it if it had been down as HS 4c!
