A short but wide buttress spit centrally by an awkward chimney which breaks an almost continuous line of overhangs and bulges. These provide most of the entertainment here.

The centre of the overhangs is beefy, the wall above much more delicate. Trend left to finish.

Jumper
The right-hand side of the roof is a bit of an eliminate though the moves are good. A small dyno may be required.
