DescriptionWell the original route better says 'The eye catching southwest buttress gained from upper valley in Freds Stream, on the south west outlier of Mt Lloyd. Climb centre of delightful face for six pitches of about 5.4. Then complete a series of pinnacles and short walls. The upper part of the route provides a crux 5.8/5.9 pitch on a 40m wall. About 350 m, 14 pitches in total.'
But there is a crux low down in the route, the first two pitches are at least 5.8 if not more and then it goes into the simli climbing threw the 5.4 section.
