Forges a very direct line up the face, offering some good climbing and a fine finish. Start at the toe of the buttress.
1) 5a, 22m. From the lowest point of the buttress, climb into and up a shallow groove that leads to the break. Move left via a thin flake, then climb the rounded arete to a stance on the terrace.
2) 5b, 22m. Climb the arete to a bulge, and pull over this to reach a wide crack and a well-positioned finish.

Bulge in top pitch looks very temporary,also very loose below
