Rockfax Description
A fine start to the day and a good way to access the slabs above. Start at a small corner at the very base of the buttress (the approach path leads to this point).
1) 8m. Climb the corner and arete to a ledge.
2) 20m. An awkward move starts the chimney just left of the belay. Continue above and then break left along a ledge and up left again to ledges and a block and nut belay.
3) 14m. Climb the easy-angled right-hand corner to a slight bulge, then move left before heading to the top of the buttress. © Rockfax
