24m. From the toe of the buttress climb the arete then move left to reach the cave of the previous route. Pull back out right and climb the side wall direct with a final tricky section.

A classic route up the arete for those who like to pose for the large numbers of walkers that gather around the downfall. Listed as Rodeo in the western grit guide. The top is quite tricky and has little protection.

This is the line of Rodeo as best as I can make out. Protection is sparse and the moves are puzzling rather than hard - a good one to second !
