A series of buttresses with an interesting collection of climbs. On the left is the narrow tower of The Mantelshelf and to its right the squatter buttress of Reveille. On the far right is a fine slab with a huge rocking block perched on top. All the routes on this particular piece of rock are worth the effort.

8m. The right-hand edge of the slab is balancy and protection is lacking. Escape into the gully is not easy once committed!
