The edge continues to an impressive buttress offering some great challenges which are rarely busy. The jutting jamming crack of Roof Route is the main route, though the corners of Groove Route and Root Route are also excellent.

Climb boldly through the bulge to gain the undercut left arete of the large slab. It eases once established. Often green.

The centre of the slab is tough, though a side runner on the right eases the strain a little.

Root Route
An excellent sustained route up the groove to the right of the roof. Gaining the ledges early on is the crux for most.

The cramped wall has fiddly wires under the roof that protect the hardest moves.

The wall and overhang to the left of the arete are bold but not too technical - or are they?

The wall just right of the arete has good holds, mild but bold.
