A steep overhang-peppered buttress with a good collection of routes. Although short, most of them manage to feel quite hard for the grade. To the right, Birthday Buttress has a few of neglected outings.

A short-lived crack on the far left is quite tricky if you are pure.

Bridge the groove and crack just left of the central roofs to a perplexing exit to easy ground.

Quantum Crack
Climb the buttress, passing an overhang early on, to an awkward leftwards exit under the final roof. Intimidating but not too...

Cosmic Crack
The crack on the right gives good laybacking to a neat finale and is pleasantly low in the grade.

Plugs a gap though not in a hugely satisfying way.

The right arete, started from the right. Nothing special!
