Rockfax Description
Start as for Wing Buttress to the flake-crack that runs up to the overhang. About face, flop across the gap, and swing rapidly round the arete to easy ground. Weird and not recommended for the short who may end up with a cleft skull! © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown 1953.

βeta: I reckon the technical crux is actually the first move onto the semi-hanging slab. The step/fall across is great fun, and all the holds/gear is there to make it exciting not scary.
