Steep powerful routes attack the stacked bulges here, there isn't much for the slab climber. The routes on the right side of the buttress are (a bit) easier, but still feel quite intense. The shorter wall to the right offers a small selection of easier stuff, which is a nice change.

The centre of the wall to the right of the corner is short but spirited, has some rounded holds and is surprisingly steep.

From the small overhang, trend left through the bulge then finish directly up the rib. Another short one with a bit of a bite.

The rib on the right is approached from the right - sweet.
