This buttress has the best spread of grades and is closest to the car, making it the most popular buttress at Salinas. The routes vary from nice and slabby on the left-hand side to steep, orange and generally harder away on the right. Fingery climbing is the order of the day whatever the grade.
Access - No climbing (normally from 1st March to 1st June) due to nesting birds.

There is an awkward move after the first bolt though it is still the easiest route on the cliff.

Good climbing up the blank looking scoop. Left of the scoop is a bit easier (5+) but also feels less worthwhile.

The blunt rib on the right-hand part of the face is technical. There is a 6c+ detour around the hard section near the top.

It's not so bad! Pull over a thin overlap early on, then go.
