The best buttress on the crag is home to one of the Peak's most famous challenges - Moyer's Buttress. This brilliant route takes an unlikely line up the tall arete being strenuous and delicate by turns. Stormbringer and Perfect Day both take equally impressive lines to their easier companion. The side-wall is sheltered but the open front face can be green after rain.

The Enigma Variation
A small pumpy extension to Biven's Crack best done in one long pitch. Climb the wall left of the arete to a rounded exit.
