|Battle of the Bulge Buttress
This is the 2nd corner left of Battle of the Bulge. Starts out rattly fingers in an acute corner, through a double tiered roof, and up the dihedral above. 80 feet to a bolt anchor.
This route is one of my favorites at IC. Better than Battle, IMO, because it's more varied. Climb smart and look for rests.

Better than Battle of the Bulge? I don't know, but its certainly a lot easier. There is some good face feature in parts of this route and it opens to thin hands pretty quickly. Emphasis on #2 friends.

I too would call this one of my top faves, better than BOB, but not as good as Crack Attack. The variance keeps it interesting, and the rests keep it within in the realms of those of us less than immortal. If you fancy yourself a 5.11 Creek leader, you won't be disappointed.

Yeah, I like this route more then Battle of the Bulge. The start is really fun going thru the small roofs. Once thru the roofs it's tight hands all the way with one flared section about half way up. Take lots of #1 camalots.
