120m. RH part of crag consists of 2 ribs running its full height, each with a steep right flank. This is the left hand one, most easily reached by descending the right hand rib, which has a grassy saddle at its top, easily seen from the summit of Barkeval. Route starts up steep juggy outcrops of superb peridotite, reaching an open terrace at half height (Narnia and Honeycomb Aretes are just off right here). Broad Buttress continues slightly left up cracked slabs, then direct to top.
