Scarey Buttress

    The obvious jamming crack two metres left of the recently-formed corner groove on the left of the cave. A top-rope may be advisable.

    A much better climb than initial appearances might suggest. Climb over doubtful blocks at the right of the cave until it is possible to traverse left to a triangular niche. Ascend the flake crack to the roof, then traverse right to finish just left of the Scarey Monster`s Eyes.
