P1 65' 5.8: From the lowest point of the buttress climb a crack, then a wall using a thin crack; carry on up, trending right to a tree belay beneath a groove.
P2 100' 5.9: Climb the groove (hard), crossing left at the top (thin) beneath a small overhang. Up a short groove then follow slabs rightwards to belay beneath a steep crack in the left wall.
P3 35' 5.9: "The crack is entered by a suitable method. Layback for the bold, mantleshelf for the gymnast or belly-roll and leg-kicking for the masses. Once entered, the trap is sprung, for retreat is virtually impossible and the exit is extremely hard. Hand-jamming and foot-scraping seem the usual techniques required" (Ron James, 1970).
P4 100' 5.7: Traverse on to the left wall and climb this steeply. Abseil (50 m) from spikes or continue to the top.
