This route is a 90 foot extension of Buried Alive. Clip a shoulder length sling into the anchors then climb up and right to the arete. Great exposure and tricky climbing way off the ground make this climb a must do.
Descent. Two rappels or lower down to the anchors you climbed past. Pull and rap or lower the rest of the way to the ground.
Starts on Buried Alive but heads right above the anchors to the arete.
Bolts and 22 draws. 14 draws if you split the pitch into two pitches.

I felt like there were two crux sections on this climb, the first about a third of the way up before working over to the arete, and the second about two thirds of the way up on the buttress. A few rests can be found on this route; I found it useful to take advantage of them. Great exposure.
