Climb the crack in the left edge arete of the buttress then hand-traverse the lowest break. Climb the tricky blunt arete.

Don't over look this route. Two cams protect the moves between breaks on excellant friction. for the complete picture try the right arete at E3 6a.

Much harder if you are too short to reach the break on the arete!

Good friends in the traverse break, 5a move to get stood on the first break. No 2 friend in slot on 2nd break, tricky 5b move to get stood on arete. Ok after that.

Thought this rotue a bot contrived really, not 2* although the climbign is ok. Crux was definitely gettign stoof in the higher break, not sure why peopel say hard HVS?
The direct arete gets E5 6b i nthe guidebook ratehr than E3 6a.

Worth a single star. Nice climbing, but the move out of the traverse break and up is much harder for the short. The crux is the nice move higher up though.
