This ascends the left side of the buttress. The crux is a step around move on the second pitch. Actually the entire second pitch was the crux for me, starting right off the belay. So the crux move is going right and grabbing a downward pointing flake ABOUT 5-10' BELOW A BUNCH OF FIXED SLINGS AND CRAP (or you will be on a 5.10b). The flake is really nice (6" wide) and you can get your hands behind it. If you place the #1 Camalot just befor doing the move, put a long runner on it to prevent rope drag. Then traverse on TCU's and down to the belay. Go up and right to finish on White Maiden's Walkway. FA by Royal Robbins and TM Herbert in 1959.
