DescriptionThe classic route of Tower Buttress is not to be underestimated! A steady start up easy ground gains a horizontal break at about half way. Good cams go in just below the break, and a rest can be had on a ledge to the right.
Progress above the break is more difficult, with a few moves up the crack (dodgy #1 cam) to big slopers on the right. Continue, with increasing boldness up more slope and eventually good holds.
Feels much easier in cool conditions.
