This is the buttress above the parking lot with the obvious dihedral. The dihedral is the infamous Bongeater and is an easy toprope to set up by scrambling up and right of the buttress. You might find a mountain goat guarding the chains.
The trail begins at the northeast corner of the parking lot.

This is a message to the group students at the Bongeater Buttress yesterday Jan 14 2012. (You borrowed my cam for the top of the route). When we were leaving I left my hiking poles under your stuff.
