Make a strenuous move to get off the ground and then climb the crest of the buttress, tending right after 10m into a steep groove that exits onto a ledge. Move a short distance along the ledge, then climb up to the crest and along this a short way to belay.

Stay on the crest and climb delicately over the cioch. An easier alternative is to climb the corner on the right of the cioch.
