A splendid buttress with two classic grit-ticks on an overhang theme though there is less quality in the lower grades. The front face gets the afternoon sun but Strapiombante faces north and can be cool in summer.

Strapiombante
A fine micro-route, strenuous, with good gear to catch you if you blow the final moves. Trend right up the wall to a break...

A real classic and rite of passage which is hard work but well protected. Climb the short arete to runners, then lean out...

With gear in Strapadictomy, climb the wall to the lump in the roof. Now try and stand up (easier for the short) then finish up...

A bit of an eliminate. Head straight through the centre of the roof, place gear in the lip, then grovel and press for the top.

The roof crack to the right is a battle. The use of knees, and loss of chunks of flesh, are pretty much par for the course.

Access and climb the jutting arete just right. Harrow...ing.

The wide crack right of the roof is an awkward struggle and a creaking flake doesn't help.

Scarper's Triangle
Climb left out of the capped corner and pull back onto the slab. Balance up this to a blind harrowing finishing crack....

The right arete on its right-hand side is bold but escapable.

Left Flake Crack
The crack left of the jutting flake is awkward at half-height.

Right Flake Crack
The right-hand crack is harder than it looks. Big gear helps.

Parallel Piped
The reachy left arete of the smart slab, with gear in the low break. Hard for the short. A fair intro to harder gritstone...

Benign Lives
The blank slab is lacking in pebbles and has thin moves high up. Now usually climbed above a stack of well-placed mats at f7A+.

Step off the mid-height ledge as for Benign Lives. Move up rightwards to the arete past a thin flake and a pocket.
