Last night Alec Taylor did a new problem on the Butterfly buttress at Ruthin Escarpment.

Sting like a Butterfly 7A+ starts on the start holds of the F7c route, Sting like a Bee. Move up with your left hand to thin undercut sidepull, and then up with your right hand to a flat edge before going out left to a spikey ear feature. There is a small crimp by the ear which helps with the last move to finish on the jug of The Butterfly Collector.
