A good climb up the steep left wall of the buttress.
Climb the wall to gain the slanting cracks. Moving left along the cracks and reach up left to the finishing ledge and an awkward mantelshelf.

It maybe short lived but what a climb! Took two visits and three attempts along with some hairy falls. Superb climbing that is very pumpy and makes your forearms feel like they are on fire... I found it better to run out the fist section of big moves to the break. Trend right up the break then protect the lower and upper break. Then make a quick dash left up the upper break to the crux. A lay back to a direct finish. However an alternative exists if out move out of the crux and left!
