Central Buttress North Face
Lies obliquely up and left from the Waterslide. Provides a decent approach for the Rannoch Wall.
To descend, traverse right at the top above D-Gully to access Curved Ridge which you can walk/scramble down.
From the path that crosses the River Coupall, stay left at the fork and head up and diagonally left across the hillside to the Waterslide. At the Waterslide, follow the path/scree field up and right. D-Gully should be fairly obvious up and to the left. Left of the gully is D-Gully Buttress and further left is the Central Buttress. Look for a grassy gully leading up and left to form Heather Ledge.
