A wandering route with an exposed finish. Climb the corner crack to ledges then traverse out onto the front of the buttress and climb its left-hand edge without much in the way of gear.


Lead this the other day in 30 degrees of heat - lovely route & the exposed finish is enjoyable though there is not a huge amount of gear at this point and sweaty hands on fairly sloping holds made it feel quite impressive for the grade.

Climbed as a warmdown after Castle Crack (HS), and didn't find it much easier in places! Quite awkward for VDiff, although protection is obviously perfect.
