18m. The buttress right of Extinguisher Chimney is gained awkwardly from the right and climbed delicately (useful flake round left) to easier ground.

I'm not surpised that the voting is placing this as an E1; I found it to be a hard and serious HVS. I was amused to see it graded VS in the old Paul Nunn book of fun.

We can't take one vote at each grade as very reliable!!
