Description 

pitch: Climb the first few bolts of B-b-buttress Then cross right over Scrubbing Bubbas to belay at a pine tree.

Pitch 2: This pitch is dirty but if it was clean it would be really cool. Climb the dirty slab up to the dirty corner. Fingers in the corner interesting holds out right. Stem your way to the the anchor. I replaced some really nasty webbing at the anchor but it will likely be nasty again in 10 years when someone else climbs it, haha.


Location 

The nice corner is found high on the cliff to the right of Scrubbing Bubbas. The start is the same as B-b-buttress.


Protection 

Bolts on the first pitch, regular rack will get you by.

This is one of the routes I will clean one day because the top part is a cool climb. I give it 3 stars given the route wouldn't have lichen and vegetation.
Overall, it is not a huge problem.
