Fifi Buttress To Close! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A wide open slab on the northwestern face of MC. Low angle to vertical corners and clean face on the lower half; steep and exposed on the upper half, following the path of least resistance on golden knobs and plates on impeccable rock.

70 bolts on 1800 feet of mostly face climbing. This route was established in memory of our friends Jonny Copp and Micah Dash, titled after Jonny's poem "Border Country", written a day before they perished on Mt Edgars hideous flanks.


Location 

Park beneath the notch, head straight up drainage. Start is left of a large gray corner with a single bush. Left of the start is a single pitch route with anchors. locate the first bolt of BC 30' up beneath a flaring seam/corner.


Protection 

12 draws, cams- 1 each .33" to 2.5" Rap route on bolted anchors.

I went up there a few times. Pretty rad. Ben Ditto onsighted through the upper crux pitches but not to the summit. The 5.12 pitches are the best rock.
