Climb the left arete of the buttress, then follow flaky cracks on the left-hand wall as they lead back right to an exposed finish out on the airy arete - lovely positions. A direct finish up the centre of the side-wall is a bold VS 4c.

Technically a doddle, but don't fall off!

Good protection to half way. After that you're on your own. Nothing technical about the climbing if you can cope with the exposure which is a bit hairy higher up.

Agree with all of the above, the finish is in a great position, up with any V Diff on grit (well, maybe not Heaven Crack)
