Climbs the slabs and grooves bordering the right-hand end of the northern slabs. Start at a short, steep black slab just left of a damp overhang where the walking track rises after skirting 'The Terrace'.
30 metres - Up the slab (crux) to a ledge. Pull over the bulge and up the easy slabby corner moving right to a good stance.
20 metres - Rightwards over slabs and scrubby ledge, then up between blocks to belay beneath a leftwards-curving groove.
25 metres - Climb the groove, which is awkward near the top, step left and up a short V-corner. Continue up blocks and slabs to a small ledge above a tree.
30 metres - Up the obvious crack behind the belay, which trends left to a small ledge. Pleasantly up the slab above using a thin seam, to the bushy ledge. A further 60 metres of easy slabs leads to the top of the buttress.
