35m. The arete of Brazen Buttress gives a magnificently-positioned pitch which has set many a camera clicking. Start beneath the arete. Climb up the left-hand side to gain a crack. Follow this to some ledges on the arete (possible thread belay if the sea is threatening). Climb the left-hand side of the arete then move onto the arete proper. Follow this to the top.

a brilliant route, but has a rather unnerving start

I am glad this has been upgraded, always felt too hard for e1!

Yep, about right for E2. "Climb up the left hand side to gain a crack..." - hmm - seem to remember a perplexing move left across a scoop just before the crack, which took some working out. Lovely route.

Necky start on slippery holds covering steep ground compared to the rest of the route which is a romp on jugs with good rests most of the way. Great position on upper arete.
