This route includes the obvious left-ward cracks in the centre of the buttress. Start up the right of the two cracks past the trees. Move out left below overhang with horizontal crack, to the vertical cracks and then layback the flak (crux). Surmount the block above and bridge from the wall of the gully back to the slab on the right; climb this to the ledge. Use the wide crack beside the breakout and scramble carefully over earthquake-shattered rock to the top.
