Heart Buttress

This is the steep buttress to the left of The Slabs. Facing NE it gets little sun and is good for a hot day though takes longer to dry out that other parts of the crag.

The most prominent lines are the two left leaning crack lines of Heart to Heart and Sliver (routes 5 & 6). The routes on the right side start from ledges that you scramble up to via fixed ropes.
