At the far left side of the buttress is a hanging flake, which is easier than it appears, especially for wall rats.
1) 5c, 15m. Move up to a ledge below the flake and arrange gear. Power up the flake quickly, reach over the top and mantel over. Make a difficult move back left across the hanging slab and move up to belay beneath the detached flake.
2) 5b, 12m. Attack the flake with gusto to the chimney-line above. Continue up this to an awkward belay.
3) 4b, 12m The groove above soon leads to a vague line up slabbier ground and the top.
