A nice easier route up the right arete.
1) 4+, 32m. Climb direct from the lowest point of the buttress with a jig left and right to pass the initial bulges.
2) 4, 30m. Continue up the flaky groove following the spaced bolts all the way to the double bolts. Abseil off.

much beter description given here than in 2001 Rockfax - if you don't avoid the bulges it is a hard 4+

Felt a bit sketchy. There are many ways to climb this and whilest the easiest line might be 4+ it is very easy to get onto harder terrain. Nice finish.

The second pitch doesn´t follow a very obvious line - or was I just prone to getting lost that day? Some pretty sketchy climbing and runouts on the second pitch for a grade 4. Lovely view though.
