24m. A bit of an expedition, best saved for quiet days. Climb the chimney to a cave and gain the ledge on the right. Follow this to its end then make tricky moves to access the slab further right again. Cross this to its right-hand edge then finish easily.

Almost a girdle traverse of the buttress - save it for a quiet day so as not to annoy everyone doing the 'up' routes!

most of it is a walk!
