This pitch is an interesting though slightly harder alternative start to Bomb ArĂȘte. Start in the corner to the left of the buttress, and climb the slanting slab to a steep wall. Climb this wall and then the hand crack which leads through a bulge, moving right at the top. Continue on easier ground to the first pitch belay ledge on the crest of the buttress.
