The most popular and nicest part of the cliff - a series of short slabby walls and cracks with an open aspect. This section of the crag wouldn't feel out of place tucked away somewhere on Burbage and consequently it is one of the few places at Baslow that you may see other parties.
Approach (see map on page 440) - The quickest approach is to follow the main track for 320m until just past a field corner on the left. The buttress is 80m away on the right.

Renaissance
6m. Worthwhile but best treated as a boulder problem as there is no protection until it eases.
