<< Great Central Route < Clarion | Dexter > Central Buttress >>
Pleasant, popular and polished climbing with three good pitches. Start below a small broken rib at 4m, just right of Clarion.</br>1) 4b, 22m. Climb the broken pillar to good gear in the break at the first set of overhangs. Step over the overhang onto a large, slick foothold and move up the short slab to the base of a narrow corner. Follow the corner to a bulging wall above and devise an exit right to a tree belay.</br>2) 4b, 10m. Move left and up to a football sized hold. Step left and pull on to a slab. Traverse left to a small tree and nut belays.</br>3) 4a, 20m. Finish up the wide rounded crack of Clarion's second pitch.
