A good beginner's climb following flakes up the left-hand side of the buttress to ledges, finishing on the left-hand arete.

A lovely beginners route.

good route, only moderate in difficulty and with decent gear, it would make a good first lead

Polished to buggary too.

Bit ambiguous where this goes at the top IMO. Getting onto the arete from the front is harder than diff, so I used a block to climb on from behind.

I would feel happy sending my grandmother up this one!
