Pitch one is quality. The corner is thin and continuous. But the exit is guarded with a sketchy loose block that ought to be trundled. The second pitch (that I climbed) had a great lieback. A fun moderate with an alpine taste...

This climb is 6 pitches if you go all the way to the top.

p5 5.6 from the bolt belay ledge. Climb up and left to a thin crack, then past a bush to a right facing corner at about 90 ft up where the corner becomes a roof to the right is a two bolt anchor.

p6 5.5 climb the right facing corner 5.5 well protected. Be careful of loose rocks below the tree belay. 80ft.

You can acctually rap the route now with a single 70m, or 2 ropes for the rap to the ground.

We trundled the big block and a lot of loose rocks at the fist belay it should be safer now. we also cleaned up the rest of the belays as much as we could but there are still some loose rocks.

To who ever put in the mixed bolt/gear line above the commitment ledge, thanks. This was a nice finish to the top of the buttress. Thanks for the rap anchors as well.

Your Welcome The traditional slung tree top anchor led to alot of rock fall on the climber/belayer below and if you rapelled from there just pulling the rope could bring some rocks down. I know this was probablly all climbed before but the new bolt lines we added allow you to climb some really fun otherwise unprotected terrain above. We will post some topos and updates in the near future.

does anyone know if there are bolted belay stations?
