The right-hand arete of the buttress gives a fine climb with a stopper crux. Start at a rib where the approach path arrives at the crag.
1) 4c, 15m. Climb the rib and groove above to a corner-crack. Climb this, moving round the arete at the top, and go up to a ledge. Belay below the arete on the left.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb the crack in the slab on the left. Where it runs out, make a bold step right to reach the arete just below the overlap - peg and small wire on the right. Step left and pull like a tractor through the overlap. Finish more easily up disjointed cracks in the slab above.
