The easiest route up the buttress. Climb the wall to enter the groove which is more awkward than it looks. Finish with a difficult move above the overlap.

When I first bolted the line, I deliberately made the groove somewhat sporting because this was originally part of a trad route with a peg in the break which slunk off left to avoid the bulge. I honestly thought the bolts would be chopped. How times change! although I do not think an extra bolt was needed

Maybe it is time that the bmc/peak arm chair climbers sat down again and told us, with all their authority and experience where bolts are allowed. They have certainly been springing up this summer; this route, Abberation and many more.

Sorry should have added, this bolt or any bolt in the Peak nothing to do with me! much too lazy and incompetent
