Follow the ledge system rightwards from the base of the buttress until a steep move can be made past the overlap. Move up and left and follow a crack system up the front of the buttress to a sloping ledge and BB.

21530mYes
 

Carry on up the continuation of the crack system. Go up a groove or step left onto a ledge on the arete and follow the exposed arete. Both options lead to a step through an overlap to the final short wall to an awkward BB just over the top of the face.
