14m. The fine stepped-groove slanting up the north face of the buttress leads to a short crack and mini-summit. Polished and popular but still a very good tick with excellent protection.
FA. Frank Elliott (of Nottingham MC) 1930


A good route to the mini-summit...why not finish up the 3m crack to the top?

The 3m crack is the 'short crack' referred to in the description, ie the route does finish as you suggest it should!

Good route, getting your leg up onto the shelf 1/2 way up is intresting, a great finish up the crack onto the summit.
