The left-hand side of the buttress via a groove and cracks. Finish using both cracks or it is a grade harder.


Who was the joker who put this down as an easy Severe?

i did this climb when i'd just started climbing and found the top bit a bit scary. been back since with a mate that was climbing around hs and he found the top bit a bit scary too.....

This and FB Right were both originally described as sharing the same finish, up the wall. If you limit yourself to just using the L and R crack respectively at the top, they are both harder than S.

decided to have some fun on seconding this and stuck as much as possible to the left arete which gave some pleasantly technical moves although really quite difficult around the bulge in the middle. Definately harder than climbing in the groove and not sure what grade it would be on lead but an interesting eliminate nontheless
