100m. The steep lower section of the buttress is normally climbed starting to the right of the ridge. An alternative start takes a corner left of the ridge. 1) 50m. The steep ridge with crux being a steep wall at the top. 2) 50m. Easy climbing to the top.

Great route, a long day if going all the way to the top, but it is possible to drop off after the difficulties.
Pitches here are wrong. I did 3 pitches to the halfheight 'col' and end of tricky climbing(around 90metres).
First pitch up steep grooves and corners, then traversed left slightly to below the steep wall and belayed.
I didn't have a description but did know where i was heading for (the steep walls). Glad i didnt use this description! :-)
Good route worth doing if too many teams on Pendulum Ridge.
