The best of the buttresses passed on the approach is well hidden below the path but worth visiting for the fine arete of Indoor Fisherman.

Dick Van Dyke Goes Ballistic
Gain the shallow hanging groove in the wall from the base of Neb Crack. Sustained with a high crux and a bad landing.

The fine arete is one of the unsung gems of Froggatt. A tough start leads up flakes then a hard move gains a break and gear....

Crooked Start
Climb the wide cracks on the front face of the buttress. Head right at the top to the finish of Tinsel's Tangle.

Tinsel's Tangle
The arete on the right and the flake-crack above are pleasant, though can be green.

On the side-wall, climb the thin crack and move left to finish direct (big cams). A direct start is 6a but usually moss-bound.
