1. Climb the easy slab to a small overlap. Arrange protection hear, and step boldly over the overlap onto the steeper slab above. Follow a very thin flake up and left, until another overlap and a move right. Gain the spike on the right arete (possible sling over the spike). Continue on up the right arete to the large ledge and belay.

2. Start down and right of the large ledge and climb the steep right facing corner. Continue up the slab and over the overlap to easing ground and the top.


Passed the tumbled blocks midway along the buttress, lies a slab. This climb starts up the middle of the slab.
