Start up the corner on the right of the rib, then move left onto the rib. Good holds up to a belay ledge with a good spike anchor and a rust piton directly above.

220mNo
 

Climb the groove to the right of the piton, crux, no protection! Traverse right above the overhanging rock to a small doubtful looking ledge, and belay.

320mNo
 

Continue directly up the face and groove. Step right before traversing left to the large belay ledge. DBC.

425mNo
 

Continue on easier, but vegetated, ground to the top of the ridge, then traverse right and up a final small wall. Head-lamps may be useful! Protection bolts were added in 2002. Descend by walking across the top of the buttress, back to the track. Or abseil down to the top of the third pitch with a 40m abseil from here to the ground.
