Dotted along the borken edge beyond Apparent North Buttress are a series of short blocky walls that have the odd thing of interest for easy routes and harder bouldering.

The centre of the tower has an exciting pull on the top wall. Avoiding the left arete makes it more like 4b.

Traverse the slopy break and finish by moving up on crimps. The line through the traverse is a condition-dependent f6C.
