The eye-catching line up the nose of the buttress. Start left of the base of the nose, at a steep slab with a short finger-crack up to its right.
1) 5b, 30m. Climb up the slab, move right and pull past an overhang (with difficulty) into a corner that leads to a ledge (possible belay). Traverse left to an open groove and climb this to where easier ground leads up the rib on the right to ledges and a belay next to a large block.
2) 4b, 15m. From the top of the block, finish up the slab and rib. © Rockfax
