BETA PHOTO: Flying Circus buttress.

Description 

This is on the left face of the buttress. Do a thin start of 5.7-ish face climbing with decent holds. Come under the awkward roof that tries to push you out (keep slack on top rope or risk being pulled off the wall). Reach for a key hold above the roof, and move up in the crack above. It feels more exposed than the height suggests.

Protection 

Use a top rope or possibly trad lead it with tricky gear.
