Looking up thr "direct" buttress. There ...


This route goes pretty much the middle of the Direct formation. Find the line of bolts to the left of the obvious right-facing dihedral and follow up to the common anchor at the top of the formation. Don't be confused by the seemingly random bolts to the left.

The first ascent was with trad gear, and it is a good choice for a beginner trad climb as it is pretty solid with adequate options for protection.


7 bolts or trad.
