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.

The pocketed wall, just left of the slab taken by Renaissance, avoiding the sloping ledge on the left for the grade.

Worthwhile but perhaps best treated as a highball boulder problem because there no protection until it eases.

The right arete of the slab on slopers feels artificial.

Originally a variation start to the next route. Direct up the initial arete has a 5b move but it can easily be avoided.
