Description 

Start at the corner directly right of a distinguishable, broken tree. Follow a left-trending crack through an outward-flaring chimney. Move up and to the right out of the chimney to easy face climbing that leads to a large ledge and a selection of large trees and boulders.


Location 

North side of the buttress 100 ft to the left of Dolphin Head.


Protection 

Natural Anchors. Fixed rope/webbing can be found for lowering on the back side of the buttress if you follow the ledge to the right.
