50m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
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

βeta: bit of a nightmare route to second if using double ropes, easy to get one stuck round the overhang when you reach up

βeta: Definitely E1 5b - it's not been HVS since 1934. A hard crux, even for E1, with small holds and smeared feet. After that, it eases back to pleasant 5a.
