The hairline crack in the rib to the right of Diocese's corner gives a fine pitch with a difficult initial wall. Start above a trench at the foot of the very thin crack..
1) 5c, 20m. Climb the thin, technical crack with difficulty to a ledge at 8m. Move left and follow the thin line up the wall right of the arete to a steep narrow corner. Follow the corner to a semi hanging stance just above..
2) 4c, 22m. Climb the cracks directly above the stance to a break and continue easily up cracks and blocks to ledges. Either belay here and then scramble off to the right or move left and continue easily for a further 15m to the top of the buttress. Not in current guidebook.
